Giving back to the hospital while having the opportunity to win some cash - it's a win, win!

Sarah H.

The giving spirit that lives at OSMH shows that our people are passionate about what they do and the lives that they touch. They go above and beyond to save lives and keep our community well.

The players in our Staff Lottery and the donors to our annual iGive Family Campaign play a huge role in our life-saving work. Each gift the Foundation receives says that they care about the work that happens here, about the health and care of our patients. It says that they support our mission and are dedicated to our patients, their families and our community.

Staff Lottery

This biweekly 50/50 lottery, authorized by OLG and run by the Foundation, is only open to current OSMH staff with a valid employee number, physicians and volunteers.  The draws will take place every payday and can be entered through automated payroll deduction or direct payment.

The cost to enroll in the draws is $5 per pay, or $10 per pay for the maximum of 2 tickets.  The maximum number of tickets sold is 350, with a maximum payout of $875. Tickets are issued on a first come, first served basis and once there are 350 participants names will be placed on a waiting list.  Proceeds from the lottery are used to purchase vital equipment at OSMH.

To participate in the draws, complete an Enrollment Form and submit to the Foundation.

iGive Family Campaign

The iGive Family Campaign is a fundraising effort that gives employees, credentialed staff and volunteers the chance to make a contribution to OSMH.

Your gift shows you are proud of the exceptional healthcare provided by you and your colleagues every day. No matter what your role is, your personal dedication sends a powerful message to the community.

Every employee, credentialed staff member and volunteer has a different reason for participating.  Some may have had personal experiences being cared for, others simply want to support their community, while others see a specific need and want to help in their own department.

Whatever your reason, there are many flexible options to ensure your donation fits you.

For more information, please contact the Foundation office at or 1-705-325-6464.


Why Others Give

The hospital is the heart of the community in so many ways. Those of us who have the privilege to work at OSMH know from the inside what it takes to make it a place where people and their families feel connected and cared for. When the OSMH family leads by example in giving back to the foundation, we help the community to create a powerful legacy. I give a regular monthly amount that adds up over time to a gift I am proud of year after year. The hospital is my charity of choice because I know who will benefit, and that is everyone I care about.

Dr. Nancy Merrow
Chief of Staff and VP Medical Affairs

As the VP of Patient Care Services, Regional Programs and the Chief Nursing Executive for over 7 years, I see the tremendous patient care that is provided to our patients & families every day by our staff, physicians and volunteers.  Although I try hard to recognize those efforts, I wanted to give a more tangible recognition; the iGive Family Campaign has afforded me that opportunity. Through my regular contributions I know that I'm giving back to the OSMH family and the patients they serve. My donation will contribute to assisting in the purchase of clinical equipment that will assist the staff/physicians in their day to day work and ultimately support the care they are able to provide to our patients. Being a Senior Leader at OSMH is truly a privilege and the iGive Family Campaign has been a wonderful way of expressing that!
