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 & fundraising including:

  • On-site Tim Hortons
  • Gift Shop
  • HELPP Lottery
  • Vendors Table
  • Antiques & Collectibles Auction

Activities & Events

Since 1997, the Antique and Collectibles Auction has been a much-anticipated event that offers the chance to give a second life to rare and interesting items donated from the community.

For Joseph Brant Hospital, the auction is one of our most important and exciting annual fundraising activities that supports Joseph Brant Hospital in the purchase of needed medical equipment. Since 1997, the event has built a large following and has raised over $1,100,000.00

The 2022 fall auction raised approximately $19,000 to support Joseph Brant Hospital.  We thank all who donated items, volunteered or attended the auction.  

Please visit for details about the next auction.


As always, thank you to our generous donors and sponsors for your support over the years!  At this time, we are not able to accept donations and will update this page when we are able to accept them again.  We appreciate your support.
