Giving Societies

  • Bonaventure Society

    Named to honour the memory of Sister M. Bonaventure, the first superintendent of St. Mary’s Hospital, this gift club recognizes donors of $1,000 to $4,999 per year.

    Like Sister Bonaventure herself, these donors are characterized by their leadership and commitment to the excellent care which has infused St. Mary’s General Hospital since its earliest days under Sister Bonaventure’s visionary guidance.

  • Heasley Society

    Col. Hugh J. Heasley (1882-1973) is the inspiration for this Society, established in 1995, honouring those who generously contribute $5,000 or more in a fiscal year to St. Mary’s.

    An outstanding Kitchener-Waterloo citizen of his generation, Col. Heasley was a distinguished soldier, businessman, and community leader who made an enormous contribution to the development of St. Mary’s. He served as a member of its Board and as Chairman of its 1959 capital campaign which raised funds to build the current 10-storey tower which comprises much of the Hospital today.

    Members of the Heasley Society gift club embody that same spirit of selfless dedication to the public good reflected in the life of the society’s namesake.

  • Cornerstone Society

    Members of the Cornerstone Society have a vision of St. Mary’s long-term financial health; having made a provision for St. Mary’s General Hospital in their estate. This sound financial decision demonstrates a practical commitment to lay a secure foundation for our Hospital well into the future.

    Members of the Cornerstone Society are recognized by name on the Donor Recognition wall located in the main hospital lobby and are annually invited to a very special education luncheon event dedicated to this group.

    Many members tell us the real benefit of planned giving lies in the opportunity to offer a gift far more substantial than they imagined possible. In addition, this level of philanthropy puts the member’s values into action, and makes each one a role model for the community.

    If you have made a provision for St. Mary’s General Hospital in your estate and financial plans, we would like to include you in the Cornerstone Society.
