Your Gifts Lead the Change

The Chairman's Circle brings together like-minded philanthropic supporters who have invested significantly in our Hospital. We rely on our visionary donors to help us continue our tradition of patient- and family-centred care.

Our Chairman's Circle includes donors who have made cumulative gifts of $10,000 or more to the Foundation. Members are grouped as follows:

  • Pillars of the Community - $10 million +
  • Benefactors $1,000,000 - $9,999,999
  • Circle of Life $100,000 - $999,999
  • Patrons $10,000 - $99,999

Thanking and celebrating our donors is an important priority for the Foundation. Each member of the Chairman's Circle receives permanent recognition on our donor wall and invitations to exclusive and educational events such as our Chairman's Circle Lecture Series. These invitations offer our members the opportunity to expand their knowledge of health care and to become more closely affiliated with one of Canada's leading community teaching hospitals.

On November 26, 2015, more than 150 guests joined us for the annual Chairman’s Circle Lecture to ring in the holiday season and learn how North York General is transforming the delivery of mental health care.
