We are on a mission to create a new kind of health care and we need extraordinary talent like you!

At Trillium Health Partners Foundation (THPF) our vision is bold: build a new kind of health care for a healthier community. Our work supports Trillium Health Partners (THP), comprised of Credit Valley Hospital, Mississauga Hospital and Queensway Health Centre and one of the largest community-based, academically affiliated acute care facilities in Canada serving one of the fastest growing populations in the country. A teaching hospital affiliated with the University of Toronto, THP serves Mississauga, West Toronto and the surrounding communities and last year alone received over 1.7 million patient visits. Throughout all of this, the ongoing pandemic has made clear what we as a Foundation always knew: without health care, we have nothing. 

That’s why we need you, to ensure our community has access to the exceptional, compassionate and leading-edge care we are known for, today and for generations to come. Our 40+ member team is comprised of exceptional talent, with diverse backgrounds and expertise dedicated to raising the crucial funds needed to address the highest priority needs of THP. Our leadership is well-connected and respected in the non-profit sector, too. Our CEO, Caroline Riseboro was the recipient of Canada’s Most Admired™ CEO award and won the 2022 Association of Fundraising Professionals’ (AFP) Outstanding Fundraising Professional award, which in part is a testament to the collaboration and hard work of our organization.

Together, we are already making a massive impact – and having a ton of fun while doing it. In fact, because of our amazing Team, we recently secured the largest donation to a hospital in Canada, from renowned philanthropist Peter Gilgan and The Peter Gilgan Foundation. This record-breaking $105 million donation will help us build the largest hospital in Canada…but we need your help to get there.

We are looking to add to our roster to help us break more records and hit more fundraising milestones, all in pursuit of a healthier more resilient community.

Join our team and help build the future of health care with us.
