What is RiPL?

Whether you are just starting your career, embarking on a new chapter or celebrating your second or third act, RiPL is perfect for leaders who are ready to start their philanthropic journeys.

Rising Philanthropic Leaders (RiPL) is a group of ambitious, forward-thinkers who want to make a positive impact on the world, starting with Humber River Hospital. We support the Hospital through various philanthropic endeavours and rally our networks to join in the fun (and fundraising!).

As members of RIPL, we use the influence and trust we have in our communities to lead participation in noble and impactful Hospital initiatives. We decide where our collective funds can do the most good and have the most significant impact. We also get exclusive access to private events, as well as Hospital tours and Doc Talks, keeping us at the forefront of healthcare innovation.

How Does it Work?

  1. Donate: Rising leaders make a personal donation to HRH Foundation
  2. Decide: We then come together to decide on what innovative program or project at HRH we will fund collectively as a group
  3. Fundraise: The fun starts! Together we will plan fundraising events, campaigns and initiatives throughout the year and invite our friends, family, colleagues to attend and raise money towards our goal
  4. Repeat!
