About Us


The Orillia Soldiers’ Memorial Hospital Foundation (OSMH Foundation) is a registered charity with the primary goal of raising funds for the benefit of Orillia Soldiers’ Memorial Hospital. Our success is tied directly to the compassionate spirit and generous support of the community, dedicated staff and a vibrant volunteer team who generate tremendous enthusiasm in support of our Hospital and its many services.

While best known for high profile fundraising events like our annual Hawk Ridge Hospital Golf Classic or our Annual Hospital Gala, the Foundation generates funds through a variety of initiatives, including major gift campaigns, planned giving, and tribute gifts.

Since 1978, the Foundation has raised more than $60 million for the Hospital.

Working hand-in-hand with Soldiers’, the  Foundation’s mission is to support the Hospital in its quest to become a centre of excellence for our community and our region. Our goal is to raise money so that we can equip our healthcare professionals with the technology and tools required to provide the best healthcare possible.

The Foundation never forgets that excellent patient care begins and ends with the talented and caring professionals at our Hospital. Through scholarship programs aimed at recruiting young people into the medical field, and various programs to support continuing education for our healthcare professionals, we are proudly supporting our legacy of healthcare excellence.
