Patient Comfort & Kindness Grants

What do blankets, pillows, magazines, and ice chips all have in common? These small, everyday items can make a BIG impact on the lives of our patients here at St. Joe’s.

Unfortunately, due to ongoing pressure to make healthcare more sustainable, finding funding for the “little things” can be challenging. 

That’s why St. Joseph’s Healthcare Foundation created the Patient Comfort & Kindness Fund.

Each spring, departments at St. Joe’s will have the opportunity to apply for a grant from the Patient Comfort & Kindness Fund at the Foundation. Grants can be up to a maximum of $5,000.  The grant request must demonstrate an ability to directly enhance the comfort and care of patients at St. Joe’s and should be used for projects that simply cannot be covered by your operational funding. Grants should also have the ability to impact multiple patients at our Hospital.

Current Application Window:

    • June 1 – June 29, 2018  (successful applicants will be notified, and funds will be dispersed, in the fall of 2018)

To apply, download the application form and submit it to before 4:30 p.m. on Friday, June 29, 2018.   Should you have any questions, please e-mail your questions to or call the Foundation at 905-521-6036.
