Every year, much-needed funds are raised through both our signature events, and 3rd party events.

The KGH Foundation relies on the incredible community support from fundraising events. Supporting an event is a FUN way to help us fundraise for advanced health care priorities in our community. By attending or hosting an event, your participation equals valuable funds raised to ensure those in our region have access to world-class health care at home.

“People always ask why, but maybe they should ask why not! You get to work with the nicest people, for the nicest people. It’s the best kind of job satisfaction you’ll ever find.”

“Linking the passion and desires of donors to the needs/opportunities of the health system and KGH is such a privilege. I am inspired most by the people; our team, donors, clinicians & caregivers, and administrators and ultimately, the transformative changes to our system of care that become possible when we work together. I am grateful to be able to feel such purpose in my work.”
