The Northpine Foundation donates $20 million to the Campaign to Create Tomorrow
As a startup philanthropic organization with big dreams, The Northpine Foundation invests in innovative projects that foster sustainable change and enable Canada’s most marginalized populations to thrive.
With a mission to be an impactful force of good and to serve communities that encounter economic and social limitations, they know a better future must be a healthy future.
With their transformational gift of $20 million to The Ottawa Hospital, The Northpine Foundation is making a significant investment in the future of healthcare – not just in Ottawa, but on a national scale, paving the way for a better future for those they serve.
The Campaign to Create Tomorrow is an ambitious $500-million campaign that sets in motion a vision to transform how the world delivers healthcare — by building the most technologically advanced hospital in Canada and taking groundbreaking research and innovation to unprecedented heights. The Northpine Foundation’s donation is part of more than $216 million raised to date.
“We want to create bold, meaningful, and lasting change. And we believe an investment toward a healthier future is the way to achieve that change.”
— Aatif Baskanderi, CEO of The Northpine Foundation
True to The Northpine Foundation’s core value of kindness, along with their rigorous determination for the betterment of Canada, their transformational gift will have a profound impact on healthcare in this country. Their openness to charting a new course will no doubt inspire others to step out, follow their lead, and make an impact for generations.
The Northpine Foundation is funded by Cathy & John Phillips through Klister Credit Corp., an early investor in Shopify Inc.
Thank you, Northpine Foundation, for serving Canadian communities in bold and innovative ways and for your extraordinary generosity.
