The Auxiliary to Joseph Brant Hospital was founded in 1959, two years before the hospital opened. The long standing dedication of the Joseph Brant Hospital Auxiliary has its roots in helping to build the hospital and it continues to be an important part of the hospital family today.
In January 2012, the Auxiliary announced its pledge of $5 million for the Campaign to support Joseph Brant's Redevelopment and Expansion Project. This pledge is the largest single donation in the Hospital's history and reflects the dedication and commitment of our Auxiliary and Volunteers, for who we are incredibly grateful.
The Auxiliary generates revenue from its various businesses including:
- On-site Tim Hortons
- Gift Shop
- HELPP Lottery
- Hairdressing Services
Fundraising events are also a mainstay for the Auxiliary. Antique Auctions and "The Party in White" fashion show are just a couple of the wonderful fundraisers that the auxiliary organizes to benefit JBH.
