Osler Foundation raising $20,000 this GivingTuesday for pandemic recovery efforts

November 25, 2021, BRAMPTON – This GivingTuesday, William Osler Health System Foundation (Osler Foundation) has a goal of raising $20,000 in support of the Build Back, Together campaign, to assist with Osler’s COVID-19 pandemic recovery. GivingTuesday is a global movement for giving and volunteering, taking place each year after Black Friday. Donations raised on Tuesday, November 30 will help Osler hospitals, and the entire community, build back from the pandemic—better, stronger, and together.

To mobilize the community behind GivingTuesday, The Leggat Auto Group is generously matching all donations up to $5000 on November 30.

As Osler works to gradually and safely resume normal operations, support is needed to fund the replacement of essential equipment. All equipment in a hospital must be funded by the community and funds raised this GivingTuesday will purchase essential items such as surgical tables, anesthesia gas machines, laparoscopes and camera heads, and an AV surgical integration system.

“The communities that Osler hospitals serve are among the hardest hit by COVID-19. GivingTuesday is an opportunity for you to directly support health care and COVID-19 recovery close to home,” says Ken Mayhew, President & CEO, William Osler Health System Foundation. “With every dollar that is donated to Osler Foundation on GivingTuesday, you’ll be giving our health care heroes the tools they need to provide exemplary health care right here in our community.”

To double your gift in support of Osler’s pandemic recovery, visit to give, or call 905.863.2440.
