About The Ottawa Hospital Foundation
The Ottawa Hospital Foundation is the fundraising arm of The Ottawa Hospital. It works to inspire and enable our community to support improvements in patient care, ground-breaking research and equipment at The Ottawa Hospital.
In 2014-2015, The Ottawa Hospital Foundation transferred $20.6 million to The Ottawa Hospital for patient care and research. This is money that was donated by our generous community. Every dollar raised by the Foundation stays here in the community. In the last five years, the Foundation has transferred more than $99 million to The Ottawa Hospital.
In February 2016, community leader and MAJIC 100 morning show host ‘Stuntman’ Stu Schwartz was diagnosed with Leukemia. He immediately began his treatment at The Ottawa Hospital and within a few short hours inspired the #StuStrong movement.
Without hesitation, the Ottawa community became highly motivated to give as a show of support for not only Stu, but for so many others who are impacted by cancer each and every day. Stu’s video blogs shared via Facebook and Twitter have quickly inspired many patients battling their own cancers.
At Stu’s request, The Ottawa Hospital Foundation is helping direct community efforts to the area of The Ottawa Hospital that matters most to him: Leukemia and Stem Cell Research.
