The Kaye Fund Competition

The University Hospital Foundation is pleased to launch the Kaye Fund Competition, a program to support innovative projects designed to benefit patients of the Kaye Edmonton Clinic and the University of Alberta Hospital

A collaboration between the Foundation, the University of Alberta Hospital site, and the Kaye Edmonton Clinic, the competition is funded by a transformational donation from Mr. Donald Kaye, with projects that include:

  1. Prevention, maintenance, or care to patients suffering from illness, disease, disability, pain or suffering.
  2. Medical and clinical research into the causes, prevention, detection, diagnosis, treatment, and cures for life-threatening illnesses or chronic diseases.
  3. Inter-professional collaboration of healthcare professionals to provide a multi-disciplinary approach to patient care at one location.
  4. Clinical learning opportunities for students or staff in all healthcare disciplines

In the spirit of Mr. Kaye's vision and in alignment with the Alberta Health Services Health and Business Plan, letters of intent will be evaluated based on a demonstration of:

  • Improved patient and population outcomes, while assessing the value for investment;
  • Improved patient and family experience, which may include improved access to care, patient safety and satisfaction; and
  • Improved provider experience, which may include inter-professional collaborations of healthcare professionals and clinical learning opportunities for students or staff in all healthcare disciplines.

Through his naming gift to the University Hospital Foundation, Donald Kaye has transformed years of hard work, prudent decision-making and wise investing into one of the largest donations in the history of Canadian healthcare philanthropy. And in doing so, Mr. Kaye is advancing patient care and medical research in a way that is both intently focused, and broadly based.
