Host a Fundraiser for the Big Day of Giving

We’re transitioning our QEH/Eastlink Telethon into QEH Foundation’s Big Day of Giving — 24 hours to have a BIG impact on health care at the Island’s largest hospital. The Big Day is on May 25th, 2022 and we want you to be part of it!

During the Big Day of Giving we will be celebrating community support and sharing heartfelt stories of grateful patients, QEH staff, and life-saving equipment needed for our Island hospital, as well as accepting donations of all sizes from donors who have held an event or have a special gift in support of Big Day.

While the COVID-19 pandemic has presented many challenges to fundraising, we are so grateful to individuals, businesses, organizations, and community groups for helping us raise critical funds for the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) last year. The new NICU equipment gives QEH health care staff the ability to care for our smallest patients right here at home in PEI. We know this year’s Big Day of Giving will inspire Islanders to once again show their support for the QEH, a place that provides care to our family, friends, and neighbours every day.

We invite members of our community to consider a special donation or fundraising initiative this spring to support the medical equipment needs of our Island hospital.
