Terry Pursell, President and CEO, North York General Foundation

Message from the President – January 19, 2018

It is hard to believe that door to door fundraising helped establish North York General in 1963, five years before the hospital opened in 1968. While the ways of donating to your hospital has changed over the last 50 years, the purpose of community funds has always been about improving the care for families of North York. The next half century will be about meeting the needs of a growing North York and many other patients in the GTA who choose our hospital.

As part of our ongoing efforts to recognize the extraordinary role of our donors, we released ‘Partners of North York’ in select Post City Magazines at the beginning of January. This publication, the third in our series following ‘Physicians of North York’ and ‘Women of North York’, highlights the difference partnerships can have on philanthropy and volunteerism for North York General.

In our 50th year, our legendary Heart of Fashion returns on May 12th, 2018. In a secret North York location, our community will come together to raise $1 million towards the redevelopment of our cancer care unit which serves over 22,000 people.

With warm wishes,

Terry Pursell
