Philanthropic Councils

Discover the Power of Our Community

The vision for the Philanthropic Councils is to create a voice for advocacy and diversity, developing memberships and a database of individuals that would like to be involved with Scarborough Health Network Foundation and/or Scarborough Health Network. Through information sharing and engaging in feedback and exchange, council executives act as an inclusive voice from a culturally diverse perspective. Specifically, each council cultivates events identified by its members and is responsible for identifying and soliciting prospective major gifts within the community, while also focusing effort on motivating advocacy and political movement.

Members will discover the power of joining their voices and giving together, all for our common interest, our health.

If you are interested in joining one of our Philanthropic Councils, please contact our Community Development team:


Put the Fun in Fundraising

Get hands-on the day of an event. A few hours of your time can make a huge difference to how well an event runs – and to the lives of our patients. Volunteering at a Foundation event is a fun and rewarding way to give back. Duties range from welcoming and registering guests, to selling raffle tickets and promoting silent auctions. No experience necessary, just a smile and some enthusiasm.

To join our volunteer mailing list, please contact our Community Development team: While we do not always have an immediate need, we would love to have your name on file to call or email.


Help Make a Difference

Events are one of the major ways to raise funds and awareness for the hospital – and our volunteers are the driving force behind them.

Every year, we host a variety of events from galas to golf tournaments, which raise much-needed funds for vital life-saving equipment and innovative patient care. There are many ways you can get involved, from becoming a sponsor, purchasing a ticket, or making a donation.
