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.
