Major Gifts

Major Gifts

Your philanthropic generosity makes a difference. As our community grows, so does the urgency for priority needs at our Whitby and Oshawa Hospitals. The Durham Region’s health care depends on charitable acts from donors and businesses who are able to make deeply generous contributions now to ensure critical needs are met today.

Every single day, more than 1,600 people from the Durham Region community visit Lakeridge Health. Your family, your loved ones, your friends and your neighbours all depend on the critical health services offered here, close to home.

Donors with the ability to contribute to our Whitby and Oshawa Hospitals with major gifts are the roots of our community for today, and for the future. Without major gift donations, priority needs for our Hospital may take much longer to achieve, and later serve our community.

Your support matters. Only with your major contributions of $10,000 and more, can Lakeridge Health Foundation support the innovative equipment, technologies, education, research and essential renovations our Hospitals urgently need to serve Durham Region.

Donations of $10,000 or more are recognized on our stunning donor walls in the Whitby and Oshawa Hospital sites. More recognition opportunities are available and more information can be seen here.
