Sherbrooke Hospital Foundaton

  • Corporate body
  • 1973-2010

Sherbrooke Hospital Foundation was founded in 1973 with Dean R. Bishop President and Bruce D. Allanson as Vice President. The purpose of the organization was to provide financial assistance to the Sherbrooke Hospital, specifically to fund special projects and the purchase of equipment. This financial support came through the solicitation of donations, fundraising campaigns, and the management of endowments. In the first twenty-three years of the Sherbrooke Hospital Foundation’s existence, the organization was able to transfer 10 million dollars to the hospital. After the Sherbrooke Hospital closed in 1996, the organization applied for additional Letters Patent in order to begin providing funding to other health care or social service organizations within Sherbrooke. The new Letters Patent lists Bruce D. Allanson as President and James E. Atto as Vice-President of the Sherbrooke Hospital Foundation. In 2008 the organization distributed 5.1 million dollars, their largest amount ever, to ten health and social service related institutions. In 2010, the Sherbrooke Hospital Foundation announced the voluntary dissolution of the corporation. The board came to this decision out of concern that they were now negatively impacting the fundraising of the very organizations they sought to help and a feeling that they had completed the organization’s mandate.
