Ensuring access to essential, life-saving care and equipment, and excellence in patient care.

That’s why you give. That’s what empowers the STEGH Foundation team every day. Together we want to continue to have the heartfelt healthcare our incredible, tight knit community deserves. When our family, friends and neighbours need care, we all believe it should be available around the next corner, not in the next city over.

We also know that our government-funded healthcare system just can’t meet every need.

That means we must count on each other to help provide the best possible care, retain top healthcare professionals and keep trust in our local hospital. And that’s what we do together, every day.

Our Mission

Our mission is simple: we partner with the community to support STEGH in the delivery of an excellent patient care experience.

our vision

To inspire a lifetime of philanthropic support for our Hospital.

That’s why we work to mobilize those who believe in making a lasting, local difference. To build better health, with heart, for all. 

In St. Thomas and Elgin County, we take care of each other, and we know that one gift can make a lasting difference in the lives of our neighbours and friends.

We also work hard to deliver a donor-centred giving experience, one that puts you at the center of every decision, communication and event. We want to ensure that you are confident you are making an impact on healthcare in this community and are proud to call yourself a St. Thomas Elgin General Hospital Foundation donor.

The Foundation itself delivers a donor-centred philanthropic experience, one that recognizes the diverse giving motivations of individuals, foundations, as well as good corporate citizens.

The St. Thomas Elgin General Hospital adheres to the Association of Fundraising Professionals Donor Bill of Rights. We are also an accredited member of Imagine Canada.
