01. Support Further Education
Donations are what help hundreds of VGH grads pursue further education. Without generous financial support bursaries would not exist.
For example the Eileen Lewis Johnston Memorial Fund, (Eileen graduated in 1965), the Harvey/Cain Endowment Fund, (Margaret Dorset Harvey, graduated in 1929 – Dorothy Cain was her sister) and the VGH/SON Alumnae Education Fund are all financed by graduates of the School or by family members.
So consider a donation to support the VGH SON graduates as they pursue their dreams of achieving educational advancement to improve the quality of nursing care.
02. Support our Archives
Support our archival and museum collections.
What began many years ago, with the donation of an iron lung, has developed into an invaluable archives and museum. VGH has provided temporary space in Heather Pavilion, but with plans to restore the original building it is likely we will be relocated. We are raising funds to prepare for this inevitable move – date unknown at this time.
To support our Archives you can donate to the VGH SON Archival Development Fund and a tax receipt will be issued. Alumnae have been generous in supporting this fund and every year approximately $11,000 is donated.
