What we do

The Ottawa Hospital Foundation raises funds to support the critical work of The Ottawa Hospital. In April 2022, we launched our Campaign to Create Tomorrow — the largest fundraising campaign in Ottawa’s history with an ambitious goal of $500 million. Our Campaign will help build the New Campus Development on Carling Avenue and take research to unprecedented heights. 

Whether it’s tackling the most complex health care issues with compassion or leading the way with research, we are proud to support The Ottawa Hospital and help create better tomorrows for millions of Canadians every year.


The Campaign to Create Tomorrow will help fulfil The Ottawa Hospital’s vision for the future of health care, focused on four critical pillars.

This $2.8-billion, world-class academic health care centre will push our hospital to the top tier of health care and research worldwide.

We will become the most technologically advanced hospital in the country, using the latest tools to provide the right care in the right space with the right provider. 

Through our unique collaborative model of clinicians and researchers working side-by-side, we will bring groundbreaking discoveries to patients in Ottawa and around the world.

From trauma care to cancer advancements to neuroscience, we will strengthen our critical services for patients across the region.

How You Can Help

Our goal is to provide exceptional care to every patient who walks through our doors. To do so, we must continue to fund research, equipment, and care — not all of which is covered by the province. With your support, we can provide cutting-edge equipment to treat our patients, enable our researchers to lead world-first clinical trials, and develop better therapies and cures for diseases — from the most common to the rarest, from the least severe to the most debilitating.


With our user-friendly online tool, you can create a fundraiser in a matter of minutes! From birthday celebrations to T-shirt sales, from golf tournaments, to galas, and even workplace giving — event creation has never been easier. Our online tool gives you the flexibility to customize your event with just a few clicks. Visit:
