In 2016-2017, the JGH Foundation's Power to Heal campaign -- its most ambitious Capital Campaign to date, with a goal in excess of $250 million -- continued to progress. We are pleased to say that, as of March 31, 2017 we have reached over $217 million in gifts and pledges. This is not only a remarkable result given the major challenges we are facing today; it is also a testimony to the empowering role our supporters play in the advancement of research, teaching and patient care at the JGH and the promise it holds for all of us.
We are proud to present a progress report on how the contributions of committed donors are making a difference – a difference that can be seen when you walk through our doors and that can be felt in the extraordinary level of care provided by our dedicated staff and doctors. This report truly showcases how vital donor support is in supplementing government funding to provide the JGH with all of the necessary equipment, technology, services and programs that are critical to the delivery of the very best in patient experience and care.
