Thanks to you, our generous donors, this week we had our most successful Giving Tuesday campaign to date. Not only did we reach our fundraising goal, we surpassed it!
The total raised on Giving Tuesday was over $37,000. With the $25,000 match from our amazing Queensway Carleton Hospital (QCH) physicians, that makes over $62,000 raised for healthcare in our community in just ONE day!
Dr. Jakub Majewski, QCH Medical Staff President, had this message of thanks to share:
“A warm thank you from all of the physicians at QCH for your support during this difficult time. The COVID-19 pandemic has created additional funding challenges for our hospital, compounding the many hurdles we face every year as we strive to maintain an excellent standard of patient care.
Our physician culture at QCH is to focus all of our energy on delivering compassionate and comprehensive care. There are many challenges. There are still care gaps that we want to fill.
We are happy to match your gifts on this Giving Tuesday. We recognize the fantastic support we have been receiving throughout this pandemic already. Thank you for coming together as a community. Your financial contributions have a profound impact on the level of care at your hospital.” – Dr. Jakub Majewski, QCH Medical Staff President
The funds raised this Tuesday will help QCH purchase urgently needed life-saving equipment with advanced technology, such as ventilators, vital signs monitors, smart pumps and the latest surgical equipment that will equip our healthcare team with the tools they need to continue to care for you, your loved ones and our entire community.
Thanks to our QCH physicians’ generous matching gift, these donations will go twice as far in support of our patients and healthcare team.
On behalf of the physicians, nurses, clinical staff and everyone at our hospital and Foundation, we want to extend our heartfelt thanks to everyone who supported our 2020 Giving Tuesday.
