Humber’s Very Own (HVO) is our employee-giving program, where Humber’s staff and physicians are able to support Humber River Health Foundation through payroll deductions.

No one knows Humber better than us – the people of Humber River Health. Together, we’ve been in every room, seen moments of triumph, and heard stories of heartbreak. We already know how to help, we know where we need to help, and now we have one more chance to do so.

HVO gives us, the people who know Humber the best, the opportunity to light even more ways in healthcare as donors.

Why We Give

“Humber River has been my second home for so long. This is the Hospital that takes care of my family. I’m a member of Humber’s Very Own because I like to give back.”

Ailyn Tablante
Registered Nurse, Mother Baby Unit



“I love my job at Humber because it’s fulfilling to be part of caring for our society. Giving back as a donor is gratifying in the same way. It brings me joy to help provide better care for our patients.”

Linda Smith
Registered Nurse, Mental Health & Addictions Program



“My favourite thing about my job is coming up with new ways to solve old problems. Being a donor lets me give back in a different way. I’m a nurse by background and it’s important for me to support my colleagues across the Hospital!”

Lisa Bitonti-Bengert
Senior Director for Clinical Innovation and Transformation.
