For over 30 years, G&F Financial Group has been a loyal supporter of Richmond Hospital Foundation, supporting various areas at Richmond Hospital including Emergency, Surgical, and Gastroenterology. In 2018, G&F raised $100,000 towards the new Acute Care Tower (ACT NOW) campaign – contributing to Richmond Hospital Foundation’s latest $50 million dollar milestone.

In addition to supporting fundraising campaigns, G&F is also an annual sponsor of the Foundation’s two signature fundraising events: the Golf Tournament and Starlight Gala. Although these events will not be taking place this year, G&F has decided to continue their support by dedicating funds towards Richmond Hospital Foundation’s Mental Health Campaign. 

“Following our mission to help others achieve in life beyond banking, we recognize that mental health is a rising concern further intensified by the onset of the pandemic. Wellness and health care is paramount during these times and so it was only fitting to make a contribution towards Richmond Hospital Foundation’s Mental Health Campaign”, says Edmond Siu, Branch Manager, G&F Financial Group. 

“We are very thankful for G&F Financial Group’s gift of $15,000 towards our Mental Health Campaign. A long time supporter of Richmond Hospital Foundation, G&F’s most recent donation will go towards supporting much needed renovations to improve the physical environment in the in-patient acute mental health unit at Richmond Hospital,” says Candace Hernandez, Vice President, Richmond Hospital Foundation. 

The renovated spaces will fully support Person and Family Centred Care, a concept that focuses on engaging family members in the patient recovery journey from start to finish to create better patient health outcomes. Richmond Hospital’s renovated in-patient acute mental health unit is scheduled to open in late 2021.
