Our corporate partners have the power to give.

Throughout the year, our corporate financial donors offer valuable support to our initiatives and recruitment efforts. That’s why, every year, we take the time to recognize their contribution to our lifesaving work and to thank them for their ongoing support.

This year’s Annual Corporate Luncheon coincided with National Philanthropy day and took place in the Atrium at our Ottawa head office. Our theme was “The Power of Philanthropy” in which we shared with our supporters the impact of their financial gifts.

At the same time, we launched our #GivingTuesdayCa initiative to support blood and stem cell research. 

Stem cell recipient, Mackenzie Curran, shared her story with our supporters, underscoring the 
 importance of blood and stem cells for the lives of many Canadian patients.
