Giving Tuesday 2018


Giving Tuesday is a global movement that commemorates the opening day of the giving season. It is a time when charities, companies and individuals join together and rally for their favourite causes.

This Giving Tuesday Queensway Carleton Hospital Foundation has partnered with Colonnade BridgePort, an Ottawa-based company that is invested in our community, for an exciting offer. On November 27, Colonnade BridgePort will match all gifts, dollar-for-dollar, made towards Queensway Carleton Hospital Foundation’s Giving Tuesday Campaign, up to $8,000. 

“At Colonnade BridgePort our purpose is about enhancing communities. This Giving Tuesday we are investing in healthcare for our community at Queensway Carleton Hospital to help change lives. I challenge you to join us and do the same!” – Hugh Gorman, CEO, Colonnade BridgePort

This Giving Tuesday we need to raise $8,000 to help purchase a new cystoscope. Cystoscopy is one of the most commonly performed procedures and helps to examine patients for conditions such as bladder cancer, bladder stones and bladder inflammation.  Cystoscopes are vital to proper diagnosis and prevention.

Queensway Carleton Hospital treats more than 4,500 urology patients each year, and your support this Giving Tuesday is crucial for us to continue to treat our patients and help change lives.

Make a donation this Giving Tuesday! Together let’s show the difference our community can make when we unite to give on one day.
