The University Hospital Foundation was created in 1962 by an act in the Alberta legislature. In the decades since, we have evolved into one of the most successful hospital fundraising organizations in Canada. We raise money to support the University of Alberta Hospital, the Mazankowski Alberta Heart Institute and the Kaye Edmonton Clinic in their commitment to:
- Provide patients with the latest in diagnostic imaging and treatment;
- Support breakthrough research that brings discoveries to the bedside; and
- Train the healthcare leaders of tomorrow.
We are passionate promoters of the power of generosity - your generosity - to change and save lives in our community. We inspire people to help advance our hospitals as world leaders in specialized and complex care. Thanks to your donations, the University Hospital Foundation has raised $148 Million in the past 10 years and that tally is growing every day. Your contributions are literally bringing innovation to life - supporting emerging ideas and technologies that are advancing excellence in patient care, education and research on a daily basis.
“In the seconds, hours, weeks and even years after my accident, I benefited more than I can tell you from the technology and skilled staff at the University of Alberta Hospital.
I am alive and walking today because of the incredible treatment I received. Much of the technology used in my care is there because of donor support.”
