Nanaimo Foundation donates $50,000 to Nanaimo & District Hospital Foundation

Nanaimo Foundation Board Chair, Daniel Martinez, announces $50,000 contribution to High Acuity Unit

On Giving Tuesday, Nanaimo Foundation proudly contributed $50,000 to the Nanaimo & District Hospital Foundation. This donation will be allocated towards acquiring essential beds for the High Acuity Unit. The new High Acuity Unit will increase the capacity for critical care in the community.

The impact of the $143,157 raised at the Hospital Foundation’s Giving Tuesday event was magnified by an extraordinary $100,000 anonymous donor match, for a total of almost $250,000. The resonance of unity and shared purpose during this initiative was truly extraordinary.

The palpable energy and excitement surrounding the event underscored the community’s commitment to healthcare excellence. This substantial contribution not only addresses immediate needs within the High Acuity Unit but also serves as a testament to the power of collective giving in fostering positive change.

As we celebrate this milestone, we extend our heartfelt gratitude to all those who participated, demonstrating that when a community comes together, remarkable things happen. Nanaimo Foundation remains dedicated to shaping a healthier and more resilient future for our community.
