ABOUT

On May 25, 2022 the QEH Foundation is hosting the Big Day of Giving — 24 hours to have a BIG impact on health care at the Island’s largest hospital. The dedicated team at the QEH provides care 24 hours a day; imagine the impact we can have with the same amount of time.

The QEH Foundation’s Big Day of Giving is a community celebration of those people who are a BIG DEAL to the Queen Elizabeth Hospital; QEH staff, patients, caregivers, and donors. It is thanks to donor-funded equipment, specialized staff, and tenacious patients that Islanders can receive the best care possible here at home.

On the Big Day of Giving, the QEH Foundation will celebrate community support to the hospital and share heartfelt stories of grateful patients, QEH staff, and the life-saving equipment we currently need. For 24 hours, the Foundation is asking for donations of all sizes from donors who have raised funds, or wish to make a special gift in support of priority medical equipment for the QEH.

All gifts combined add up to make a significant impact on Island healthcare. For further information on making a donation, contact the QEH Foundation office at (902) 894-2425 or online via credit card

Even though the look and delivery of our traditional Spring fundraising event has changed, the need to raise important funds for life-saving equipment remains. This year, we are focusing our fundraising on equipment needs from across the Queen Elizabeth Hospital. From provincial services only offered at the QEH in Orthopedic Surgery, and the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU), to Physical Medicine where Islanders are receiving the care they need to live a full life. Finally, supporting those who care for us when we need it most, nursing education is in need of specialized equipment to keep their skills and knowledge up to date with best practices and standards of care.

We look forward to introducing you to some of our Big Day Big Deals and invite you to connect with us on May 25, 2022 to hear their stories. Follow us on social media, tune in to HOT 105.5 and Ocean 100 on the Big Day to follow along as we see how BIG of an impact we can have in 24 hours.
