GlobeCard proudly supports The SickKids Faundation
SickKids Foundation is the largest non-governmental granting agency in child health in Canada. Established in 1972, SickKids Foundation has granted over $500 million to The Hospital for Sick Children and over $60 million to researchers across the country.
Through its National Grants Program, SickKids Foundation invests $4 million annually across Canada in paediatric research, focusing on issues important to children's health which have not been addressed elsewhere.
"The Hospital for Sick Children, affectionately known as SickKids, opened its doors in 1875 when there were no medical facilities specifically designed to cater to the needs of the children of Toronto. Now, over 130 years later, we are a world leader in children's health research and care. Since its establishment in 1972, SickKids Foundation has been proud to be the hospital's partner in all its endeavours; we strive to engage the community in meaningful philanthropy that will support scientific advances and improve the lives of children and their families in Canada and around the world." says the president of SickKids Foundation Michael O'Mahoney. At GlobeCard we believe The Hospital for Sick Children is one of its best examples in the world that focuses on sick children. We believe and support their vision and commitment.
