Breakthroughs in Care

Together, we’ve made Breakthroughs in Care at the IWK

When the IWK Foundation embarked on Breakthroughs in Care nearly ten years ago and then more recently the Critical Care Redevelopment Project, it was ambitious. In fact, it was the largest 100 per cent donor-driven fundraising campaign for a health care organization in the Maritimes’ history. 

We knew, like all breakthroughs, these initiatives would take time and commitment. We also knew that with the incredible dedication and support of our Maritime community and beyond, together, we would succeed. Today, we are so very proud to share the incredible news that we have officially completed this journey after raising more than $58 million for transformation at the IWK.

As this past year has taught us, the only thing that is certain in life is change. We have all had to learn to adapt quickly to circumstances out of our control – especially those working in health care. The IWK was in a better position to respond to the COVID-19 crisis thanks to all of you who made these redevelopment projects a reality. Thank you for your generous support!
