The St-Boniface Hospital Foundation was established in 1971, on the 100th anniversary of St. Boniface Hospital.
Its original purpose was to raise funds to support medical research. Today, the Foundation raises funds to support excellence in health care and research at St. Boniface Hospital in a manner that embodies the legacy of the Grey Nuns. Since its inception 40 years ago, the Foundation has raised more than $140 million to meet these needs. Funds raised have supported the construction of the G. Campbell MacLean Building, home of St-Boniface Hospital Research, the purchase of Manitoba’s first Magnetic Resonance Imaging Scanner, and the construction of the I.H. Asper Clinical Research Institute.
