Sponsor a Safe Ride & Parking Assistance

Transportation and parking for appointments can be costly - especially for those who are less fortunate. Your gift will make sure that these expenses don't prevent our patients from getting the great care they deserve.

Comfort a Dialysis Patient: $40

Patients living with chronic kidney disease will sometimes have to visit our Hospital several times per week, for hours at a time for dialysis treatments.  You can help to make their stay at St. Joe’s a little more comfortable with a gift of $40 to our Dialysis Patient Comfort Fund.

Warm Blankets for Newborns

For a newborn baby, the world can feel a little chilly at first. Help keep them cozy and warm with soft swaddle blankets in our Birthing Unit.

Equip our Laboratories

Every day, more than 500 people are researching illnesses and discovering new treatments right here in our labs.

Your gift will help equip them with beakers, test tubes, petri dishes and other essential research supplies.

Grant A Wish in Palliative Care

For our palliative care patients, fulfilling their last wishes can bring peace and closure in a difficult time.

Your gift can help us make sure their final moments are special ones, with visits from family pets, renewing marriage vows, or picnics in the sunshine.

Fund Innovative Mental Health Therapies:  $75

Recreational therapies are important parts of the St. Joseph's Mental Health & Addiction Program.  Pet visits, yoga classes, art therapy and more can help to decrease anxiety, foster feelings of happiness, and create a positive environment for recovery.  With a gift of $75 you can support leading mental health care initiatives at our Hospital.

Alleviate Asthma & Allergies: $250

Breathing easy is something every child should enjoy. Your gift will help our researchers better understand, care for, and possibly cure children with asthma and allergies across Canada.

Stock Up a Surgical Cart

Each of the surgeries St. Joe's performs requires a customized and fully-stocked surgical cart. Your gift will put the right tools in the hands of our surgeons and help to save a patient's life!

Fund A Robotic Surgery

After a major surgery, every patient wants to get back to the comfort of their own home. And with the innovation of robotic surgery, now that can happen even quicker!

Your gift will enable our surgeons to make smaller, more precise incisions with our surgical robot that heal faster and scar less. Ultimately, it means our patients can get better sooner!
