The Next 25 campaign wraps up; More than $160,000 raised for QHS Fund
To mark 25 years as a united health sciences faculty (medicine, rehabilitation therapy and nursing), Queen’s Health Sciences held the Next 25 fundraising campaign to support the new Queen’s Health Sciences (QHS) fund supporting key strategic priorities. This collective effort raised more than $160,000 for the fund.
“We chose to celebrate our past by looking towards our future. The QHS Fund will continue to play a key role as we implement our strategic plan, Radical Collaboration, and transform what we learn, teach, and research,” says Dr. Jane Philpott, Dean, Queen’s Health Sciences. “I can’t wait to see what the next 25 years has in store for us at QHS.”
The Next 25 campaign featured a number of website stories celebrating the 25th anniversary as well as online virtual events (watch The Future of Healthcare in Canada and Cancer Research from the Frontlines), a gala dinner and dance, phone-a-thon, and other engagement activities for staff, faculty and students (including cake).
While that particular campaign is over, the fundraising efforts continue, to support the way QHS reimagines education, research, and care to create a healthier world. A generous alumni donor provided matching funds for donations towards the campaign and, for a limited time, there are still some funds available to double the impact of your gift. If you would like to contribute, please contact Emily Rees.
Guided by the strategic plan and working as a united team, QHS will play a leading role in improving health systems, quality of care, and patient outcomes for years to come. Read the Strategic Plan Year 1 Report to learn more about initiatives and progress.
“Many thanks to everyone who gave to the campaign and supported it—from attending our events and sharing our stories to opening your hearts and wallets with a donation. It is greatly appreciated,” says Philpott.
Advancement and communication teams are doing a deeper review of campaign results; please feel free to provide your thoughts and feedback on the Next 25 campaign.
