The Schroeder Foundation supports St. Michael’s efforts to tackle COVID-19.

When the COVID-19 pandemic hit Toronto last spring, The Schroeder Foundation rallied behind St. Michael’s Hospital’s efforts to tackle the global public health crisis, with a major gift to the Courage Fund. The funds supported St. Michael’s most pressing COVID-19 priorities, including the purchase of equipment to quickly ramp up the hospital’s capacity to test for the virus, support for courageous frontline staff who were working around the clock to keep everyone safe, as well as food, clothing, hygiene kits, medications and secured tablets for the most vulnerable members of our communities on whom the pandemic has had the greatest impact.
