The Innovators
Ways to Give

The Innovators

A network of young philanthropists in Oakville.

The Innovators is a group of like-minded individuals that aims to engage young professionals in philanthropy while providing enriching networking opportunities within the hospital and our community. 

Throughout the year, Innovators build their understanding of our community’s healthcare needs and how the group can help address these priorities through behind-the-scene events lead by healthcare experts and speakers who will highlight the hospitals highest priorities, offer hands-on learning opportunities and small group sessions.

To join this exclusive networking group, Innovators pledge a minimum commitment of a $2,500 gift (annually). Together, the Innovators vote on how their funds will support the community at the year-end allocation event, empowering them to make a meaningful impact at Oakville Trafalgar Memorial Hospital. Since the program’s inception in 2019, The Innovators have contributed more than $100,000 to invest within OTMH.

Impacts & Highlights

Innovators were able to fund priority needs which ensure the health and safety of patients and caregivers and to improve the way care is accessed, measured, and delivered. 

Funding supported The Patient Navigator which is a pivotal role. Navigator’s guide patients through the program in a timely manner, explaining any required procedures, all while providing emotional support. 

Innovator funds were allocated towards the Critical Education & Training Initiative in the Emergency Department. This training program enables staff to get the advanced lifesaving knowledge and skills they need to feel confident in their roles and perform at the level of proficiency needed to serve the community. 

Every department at OTMH relies on Diagnostic Imaging services. The Innovators were able to fund priority needs that will aid in increased access and reduced waiting times for those seeking imaging services for their care.
