Let’s Make Anything Possible

The Children’s Hospital Foundation of Manitoba Makes Changes.

After a record fundraising year, the Children’s Hospital Foundation of Manitoba announced changes today.

*A new five year plan to help transform child health in Manitoba – This strategic plan will evolve the way the Foundation runs putting a strong focus on change creating synergy throughout.

*New areas where donors can help transform the hospital – For the first time in its history, the Children’s Hospital Foundation of Manitoba will commit to raising money for bricks and mortar, helping the hospital leadership to create new Centres of Excellence, while continuing to fund research, specialized equipment needs, and support programs that bring comfort to sick children and their families during difficult times.

*New innovative ways to acknowledge major donors using technology – Starting with Lilibeth and Michael Schlater, donor walls with naming rights will feature a QR code that will launch into their story so generations to come will learn about who they are, and why they choose to support.

*New look – After 23 years, Dr. Goodbear is getting refreshed. The iconic symbol will remain, and the marketing materials will start to reflect community needs to make anything possible together.

“After countless interviews with donors, stakeholders, and medical professionals, we realized that our Foundation has a stronger, collaborative role to play in helping transform child health care in Manitoba,” states Stefano Grande, President & CEO, Children’s Hospital Foundation of Manitoba. “With more announcements coming shortly, we are excited to inspire the community to help kids across Manitoba, Northwestern Ontario, and Nunavut. Together, we can make anything possible.”
