Women In Philanthropy at Queensway Carleton Hospital Foundation brings together like-minded women who want to help transform healthcare for Ottawa and our region.

Collectively, Women In Philanthropy members will invest in advanced programs and services at Queensway Carleton Hospital that respond to our community’s most pressing healthcare challenges.

Advance Healthcare Together 

Women In Philanthropy members pool their donations to create a fund that is awarded annually to one of three Queensway Carleton Hospital short-listed projects that address urgent healthcare challenges within our community.

The winning project is determined by members at an annual voting meeting where the projects are presented.

Networking Opportunities

Women In Philanthropy events provide the opportunity for members to meet other women who are committed to improving healthcare in our community, and to learn how their generosity is making a difference.
