About us

Who We Are

The Ottawa Hospital Foundation is the fundraising arm of The Ottawa Hospital and the Ottawa Hospital Research Institute.  The Ottawa Hospital Foundation works to inspire and enable our community to support improvements in patient care and equipment at The Ottawa Hospital, as well as groundbreaking research at the Ottawa Hospital Research Institute.

In 2013-2014, The Ottawa Hospital Foundation transferred $9,615,343 million to The Ottawa Hospital and $9,738,640 million to the Ottawa Hospital Research Institute, for a total of $19,353,983. This is money that was donated by our generous community. Every dollar raised by the Foundation stays here in the community.

We are proud that the Foundation was named one of the top five most efficient hospital foundations in Canada. With administrative costs of 18.5 cents on the dollar, our Foundation was also ranked second in Ontario for fundraising efficiency and received an A+ on governance and transparency.
