Cementing a legacy

Celebrating the single-largest healthcare donation in Ottawa history

The Greenberg name in Ottawa has long been synonymous with service to the community and innumerable philanthropic projects. Since 1955, when they created their business, the Minto Group, the Greenberg family members have made a significant impact on the community. In fact, there are few aspects of the city that haven’t been touched in some way by the Greenberg generosity of spirit.

Now, with the single-largest healthcare donation in Ottawa’s history, the shareholders of the Minto Group — Roger Greenberg, chair of the campaign and Executive Chairman of the Board of the Minto Group, his five siblings, and their cousin — have cemented their legacy as pillars of our community.

 

This incredible $25-million donation is the lead gift to the Campaign to Create Tomorrow — the most ambitious fundraising campaign ever in our region. Our $500-million campaign sets in motion a vision to transform healthcare by building the most technologically advanced hospital in Canada and taking our groundbreaking research and innovation to unprecedented heights.

 

Guided by a philosophy to leave the world better than when they found it, and with more than 65 years of established roots in this city, the Minto Group’s decision to support this campaign is deeply personal and will have a profound impact.

 

Thank you, Greenberg family members, for your leadership, extraordinary generosity, and for being catalysts for a healthcare transformation in Ottawa and beyond.
