Group Fundraising

Every year dozens of local sports teams, clubs, classmates, community groups, co-workers and associations fundraise to support patient care at Lions Gate Hospital. This is the biggest campaign in the Foundation’s history and we want make sure we celebrate our champion fundraisers.

So gather your group, and make a plan to raise funds which will go directly to the new acute care tower. If you raise a minimum group donation of $250, we’ll take a portrait of your group to be featured in the North Shore News and our online campaign to transform health care.

Local groups of every size and description are invited to participate including:

  • Book clubs
  • Hiking & running groups
  • Sports teams
  • Co-workers & companies
  • Meet-up groups
  • Social clubs
  • Professional groups
  • Wine clubs
  • Civic groups
  • Art guilds

How To Get Started

Staff at the Foundation are available to help your team succeed and we are happy to provide you with advice, promotional materials, our logo and whatever assistance we can. We’ve assembled some information in our Group Fundraising Guide so you have everything you need for your group fundraiser. Once you have decided the details of your group fundraising initiative, please fill out our Group Fundraising Information Form and return to Jennifer McDonald at your earliest convenience.

We are committed to raising $100 million of the estimated $200 million cost to build the Medical & Surgical Centre at LGH and with your help we can make it happen. We have already passed the halfway mark and 100% of funds that you raise will be designated towards this vital new facility.


Every year Lions Gate Hospital truly benefits from community fundraisers organized by people like you. No matter how large or small, every dollar counts. Thank you for joining us in the initiative to transform patient care on the North Shore!
