About Our Campaign

Our record-setting $34 million Together, We Care campaign is The Foundation of Guelph General Hospital’s most urgent community fundraising project ever. Together, with your caring support we will fund three essential projects: expand our strained Emergency Department and create new space to support better mental health and addictions care, invest in new patient care equipment and technology, and upgrade our Special Care Nursery. Learn how your support matters.


The legacy of giving back to the community continues today with the 4th and 5th generation of Sutherlands. When the Sutherland Family heard about the urgent needs of the hospital through the Together, We Care campaign, they knew they wanted to help, having seen the impact Guelph General makes to families in our community every day.


“CIBC is proud to support the incredible work Guelph General Hospital does to ensure community members receive the highest quality of care during their cancer diagnosis and treatment,” said Snezana Popov, Director & Team Leader, Public Sector and Not-for-Profit Group, Commercial Banking, CIBC. “Our support this year helped make the hospital’s ambition of purchasing 33 new scopes for its endoscopy unit – which will benefit 7,000 patients per year – a reality.”
