The Foundation of Guelph General Hospital


About Us

At Guelph General Hospital, every dollar spent on equipment used in the direct care of patients comes from a donor. Not all essential costs are covered by government funding. Local community support is essential for our Hospital to deliver the safest and highest quality care to
patients and their families.

Every year, generous donors impact the quality of care and experience of patients at Guelph General. Donors fund the most basic and essential medical tools including patient beds, thermometers, IV pumps, and vital signs monitors. They also fund high-tech patient care tools like our Hospital’s Mammography Machine (the first of its kind in Canada), advanced imaging technology for the Hospital’s Vascular Surgery suite, and most recently, Medication Safety Carts to support our Hospital’s most significant medication safety initiative.

You can see full listings of donor-funded patient care equipment on our website.

You can also read stories about how donors are impacting patient care with each piece of equipment they fund.

Guelph is one of the fastest growing cities in Ontario. This strains our healthcare system in many ways. Guelph General’s Emergency Department now sees nearly 20,000 more patients than it was designed for, and we need to meet growing needs across the entire hospital. To meet this challenge, not only do we need to physically expand but we also must invest in vital, innovative technologies and solutions that continue to support the best hospital experience for patients and their families. 

Community support is essential. The support of our community enables Guelph General Hospital to keep pace with ongoing patient equipment needs and emerging patient care technology. You can join our community of generous donors who care deeply about ensuring every patient at Guelph General receives the best possible care and experience. 

We gratefully accept online donations, or donations by mail. Members of our community can also get involved in our Tour de Guelph and Black Tie Bingo fundraising events as a participant, volunteer, or sponsor. We also invite you to host your own fundraising event. Those aged 18-plus can play our 50/50 Hospital Lottery.

Which ever way you prefer to get involved with The Foundation of Guelph General Hospital, you will help save lives and improve health, together with our community.
