Honour Your Hero
By making a gift through Honour Your Hero, patients and their families have an opportunity to express gratitude and share a message of thanks with staff across Toronto General and Toronto Western hospitals and Toronto Rehab for their care, compassion and support while also making a difference – now and in the future.
Whether it’s the doctor who cared for you during a difficult time, the porter who helped you with a kind smile, the nurse who held your loved one’s hand or an entire care team, they will receive a certificate with your personal message of gratitude and a commemorative pin at certain milestones.
How it works
A patient or their friends and loved ones can honour an individual or care team by making a donation through Honour Your Hero.
The Foundation will then send a certificate to each hero including your special message of thanks and your contact information, with consent.
Honourees also receive a pin at certain recognition milestones, outlined below.
UHN Foundation is pleased to be able to recognize care providers in this way to ensure our champions, supporters, heroes and life-savers know the immense impact they have on those they are privileged to serve.

“When [patients] honour us through the Honour Your Hero program, they touch our hearts and really make us feel valued. When patients give back, they encourage us to keep going, but I also feel a sense of responsibility to make sure their donations make an impact.“
