The Nottawasaga Foundation made a significant gift to the Stevenson Memorial Hospital Foundation by delivering their seventh instalment of $100,000 towards their $1 million commitment.

In honour of its 25th anniversary in 20217, the Nottawasaga Foundation and the Biffis family pledged a total of $1 million in support of the Stevenson Memorial Hospital Foundation’s $43 million ‘Because of you, we can’ campaign. The pledge will contribute to the hospital’s redevelopment project and address crucial equipment and technology needs.

The gift was generated through the Nottawasaga Foundation’s golf fundraising event held in July. The achievement was made possible through the efforts of corporate sponsorships and individual donations.

“We are proud to continue our annual donation commitment of $100,00 as part of our $1 million pledge, supporting redevelopment, equipment, and technology as part of Stevenson’s Because of you, we can, campaign,” stated the Nottawasaga Foundation.

For many years, the Biffis Family has been a dedicated supporter of the hospital. Their involvement in projects such as the re-opening of the Obstetrics/Birthing Unit in 2008 and supporting digital mammography and maternal child advisory programs speaks volumes to the dedication they have in support of community health care.

“Thank you to the Nottawasaga Foundation and the Biffis family for continuing to support our hospital, year after year,” said Jody Levac, president and CEO of Stevenson Memorial Hospital. “We have a much-needed hospital expansion on the horizon that is dependent on community donations. Contributions like these are so critical to our hospital and the success of our redevelopment project, ,which will revitalize our space and provide the health care facility our community needs and deserves.”

The ‘Because of you we can’ campaign is the largest campaign in SMHF’s history.

“The Nottawasaga Foundation and the Biffis family consistently take a lead in advancing our mission in fundraising for Stevenson Memorial Hospital,” said Mary Thomas, CEO of SMHF. “Their generosity continues to play a role in the community in helping to provide quality healthcare close to home.”
