Fifty-two (52) local business owners and leaders are supporters of a program we call Business Cares. What that means is they've each committed to five years of giving $5,000 per year. That's $25,000 each over five years. For our size of community, we think that's a brilliant achievement. Click here for the Business Cares donor report.
Message from the Chair - Pat Dubé
In 2016, Business Cares was just a simple idea based on discussions between a few local business leaders and the Huntsville Hospital Foundation team. I'm proud to say I was part of those early discussions, primarily because the results are so inspiring. In three short years, Business Cares, thanks to the efforts of our local business community, has generated 51 five-year commitments of $25,000 each totalling $1,275,000 in support of our hospital here in Huntsville. I think that sends a powerful message:
To other business owners: you're in good company when you commit to healthcare for life, here. Over 50 of your peers belong to Business Cares.
To our hospital leaders and professionals: we have your back, and the business community of Huntsville will continue to support your efforts to ensure an outstanding, well-equipped hospital remains central to our way of life.
To the Ministry of Health and Long Term Care: the business community of Huntsville has voluntarily demonstrated deep local support for its hospital. We have walked the talk. And we'll continue to do so.
To our neighbours and customers: when you support local businesses, you help us strengthen this community. Your business leaders have demonstrated the will to give - we do that knowing you support us in turn.
The ability of a community to invest in its own health and future for our neighbours, our families and everyone who visits here is evident in the support of local business leaders. I'm sure you share my profound gratitude to them all. We're great when we work together - that's Business Cares.Business Cares Committee Chair Pat Dube
