About CHU Sainte-Justine Foundation:

Founded in 1987 through the merger of Fondation Justine-Lacoste-Beaubien and Fondation Sainte-Justine, CHU Sainte-Justine Foundation raises funds to care for women and children at Sainte-Justine University Hospital Centre. The hospital is the largest mother and child care centre in Canada. The Foundation’s focus is on risky pregnancies, mental diseases, cancer care, muscle disorders and heart care. The foundation also funds research and teaching at Sainte-Justine University Hospital Centre.

In F2015, CHU Sainte-Justine Foundation allocated $28.2m to the hospital. It spent $11.3m on research, $11.0m on health care and the Growing Up Healthy campaign, $3.7m on equipment, and $2.3m on teaching. The hospital has 5,560 employees, including 500 physicians and dentists, and contains the second largest pediatric research centre in Canada.

In 2013, CHU Sainte-Justine Foundation started a 5-year $150m fundraising campaign, Healing More Better, to expand facilities at the hospital. Its previous fundraising campaign, Picture Me Growing Up Healthy (2008-2012), raised funds to purchase equipment such as smart pumps and beds, build additional palliative care rooms, fund research on genetic determinants of leukemia, and launch new programs in medical education.
