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.
