Health Sciences Centre Foundation


A holistic donor engagement system demonstrates community impact and enhances a culture of philanthropy.


Founded in 1976, the Health Sciences Centre Foundation provides the funding for compassionate care, innovative research, new clinical research facilities, and cutting-edge technologies. Since its conception, donors have generously donated over $175 million to support the flagship hospital of Manitoba. The Health Sciences Centre Foundation is committed to saving lives and bringing comfort to families throughout Manitoba.


The Health Sciences Centre Foundation needed a donor engagement system that not only recognizes and honour donors, but shows the impact of the gifts, celebrates the organization’s history, and incorporates storytelling to engage all stakeholders. 

“Our relationship with BrookGlobal goes far beyond the co-development of our beautiful Donor Celebration Centre. Their dedicated team took the time to understand what makes our foundation unique and delivered a concept that was far more than names on a wall.”

Through a series of discovery and strategy discussions, BrookGlobal identified several objectives for the system, in addition to recognizing donors.

BrookGlobal created a holistic approach to donor engagement that included:

The comprehensive donor engagement system created for the Health Sciences Centre Foundation, was carefully designed to increase philanthropic revenue, culture, and show the diversity of Manitoba. The donor celebration centre showcases the essential role donors play in the development of the organization, while celebrating the hospital’s history, important milestones, significant research accomplishments, and passionate volunteers. 


The system is a space of rest, quiet reflection for patients, their loved ones, and medical staff. Health Sciences Centre Foundation’s donor system made possible by the generous contribution of one donor. The system also incorporates storytelling elements to celebrate the impact of philanthropy at HSC and highlight donor, medical staff, and patient stories.
“The end product is a holistic communication and engagement system that speaks not only to our donors, but to hospital staff, patients, families, visitors, Board members, and more. We strongly believe that our Donor Celebration Centre will be an important tool in increasing our fundraising revenue, improving donor retention, supporting our communication strategy, and enhancing our philanthropic culture. We highly recommend the BrookGlobal team to any fundraising leaders who are looking to honor and engage stakeholders in a meaningful and sustainable way.”
