Philanthropic and Operational Excellence 

The University Hospital Foundation is proud to have achieved Imagine Canada accreditation and High Performer status from the Association for Healthcare Philanthropy; recognition of the Foundation’s commitment to applying our mission – to advance excellence – to our governance, daily operations and financial integrity.

AHP High Performer Status

The University Hospital Foundation has received “High Performer” status from the Association for Healthcare Philanthropy (AHP) for the fourth time. 

As one of 10 organizations in Canada to receive such recognition in 2017, and 1 of only 4 charities supporting an academic hospital, the University Hospital Foundation sees the designation as a testament to applying our mission – to advance excellence – to our daily operations and financial integrity.

Awarded annually to the top 25 percent of all reporting organizations, the designation is based on detailed information relating to the organization’s performance, including fundraising revenue, expenses, details on specific fundraising programs and staff involvement.

AHP recognized the top 25 percent of all reporting organizations for net production returns in the 2017 AHP Report on Giving. In Canada, the net fundraising revenue for high performers is three times greater for all institutions reporting ($22.3 million vs. $6.7 million, respectively).

In the 2016-2017 fiscal year, thanks to the generous support of our donors, the University Hospital Foundation generated a total revenue of $27.4 million - during a year in which many Albertans faced challenges in our recovering economy, and charities struggled to meet their fundraising goals.
