We are proud to live in a community whose business leaders embrace philanthropy as part of their overall vision. Corporations and businesses have provided tremendous support to the Alberta Children's Hospital since its inception.

When you partner with the Alberta Children’s Hospital Foundation, you demonstrate your commitment to helping kids and families―as well as your corporate social responsibility to customers and clients. The community will recognise the positive impact your organization has on children’s health and your employees will feel proud to be part of a culture that unites their team in a rewarding way.

In addition to corporate support, providing a way for your staff to give back to the community in which they live and work is a perfect way to inspire, increase morale and build engagement.

Donors Making a Difference: Northstar Ford & the Giles Family Foundation

Northstar Ford has been supporting children’s health and wellness at the Alberta Children’s Hospital since 2012. Inspired by the care their children received, Northstar owners Marty and Dennine Giles strive to create a culture of philanthropy through their business with their employees, vendors, family and friends. Their signature fundraising event – the Northstar Poker Tournament – has raised more than $760,000 to support childhood cancer care and critical concussion research.

As we recognize Childhood Cancer Awareness Month, we extend our sincere thanks to Northstar Ford and the Giles Family Foundation for making the road to recovery a little easier to travel thanks to their most recent commitment of $1.25 million to “Hospital at Home”. A first of its kind program in Canada, “Hospital at Home” provides in-home treatment and care for children and teens diagnosed with cancer, blood and immunity disorders.

Thank you Northstar Ford and the Giles Family Foundation!
