Humber River Hospital Foundation has achieved Accreditation from Imagine Canada’s Standard Program
We are excited to share that Humber River Hospital Foundation has officially been accredited under Imagine Canada’s Standards Program. With this achievement, we join a distinguished community of 248 accredited charities dedicated to operational excellence across Canada.
“Earning the accreditation, especially in these changing times, shows remarkable resilience, and a strong commitment to innovation and excellence,” says Bruce MacDonald, President and CEO of Imagine Canada.
The goals of Imagine Canada’s Standards Program are to increase organizational excellence and transparency of charities and nonprofits, to build resilience and to strengthen public confidence in individual organizations and the sector as a whole. To earn the accreditation, organizations like Humber River Hospital Foundation must meet 73 standards in financial management and accountability, fundraising practice, board governance, staff management, and volunteer management.
“The team at Humber River Hospital Foundation is overcome with pride as we celebrate our new Imagine Canada accreditation and congratulate the other organizations joining this prestigious group.” says Pamela Wing, President and CEO of Humber River Hospital Foundation.
The Foundation’s policies and procedures in the five areas of compliance were evaluated by a group of volunteers from the sector, and were found to be compliant with the Standards Program. Compliance during the accreditation period is monitored regularly to ensure standards are being met.
“Like every charity, our world has definitely changed over the past two months,” says Pamela. “While we didn’t know what the COVID-19 pandemic would mean for fundraising, our donors have stepped up in the most generous and heartwarming ways that truly show the strength of the human spirit.”
Humber River Hospital Foundation is proud to share this accreditation with our donors, board members, volunteers and hospital team who never cease to amaze and inspire us as we work endlessly to help make healthcare ready for whatever tomorrow may bring.
