Community Support Helps Build a Bold New Center – Your Impact

Through unique matching gift and awareness campaigns, the Sunnybrook community has come together to support the new Garry Hurvitz Brain Sciences Center.

Anticipation is building as a new home for brain and mental health care takes shape at Sunnybrook’s Bayview Campus.

Construction is progressing well at Sunnybrook’s new Garry Hurvitz Brain Science Center, which will serve patients with common and challenging brain and mental health conditions. Research will also be integrated with care, bringing together experts from across disciplines to advance urgently needed discoveries in brain and mental health.

From the early days when the Garry Hurvitz Brain Science Center was a bold idea, to more recent progress in its construction, our generous donors have raised more than $78 million to date to support Sunnybrook’s vision for the Center.

As we approach our fundraising goal, our community has continued to rally with an added push, responding to several new initiatives to raise awareness and broaden our base of support for the Center.

Over the past year, the Friends of Sunnybrook have enabled donors to double their impact through an ambitious matching campaign for the Garry Hurvitz Brain Sciences Center.

Thanks to the remarkable commitment of the Dellelce, Holland and Murphy families, major gifts are matched up to a total of $10 million. Our exceptional volunteers have enabled us to accelerate this opportunity, inspiring donors to partner with Sunnybrook as we work toward our shared vision of inventing the future of healthcare.

Meanwhile, a moving multimedia campaign sparked awareness, hope and support for the Garry Hurvitz Brain Science Center as it powerfully demonstrated how the new Center will be there “For All With A Brain.” “. Inspired by the range of brain and mental health disorders that will be studied and treated at the Garry Hurvitz Brain Sciences Center, hundreds of community donors have stepped up to lend their support through a series of email campaigns.

Every Sunnybrook donor makes a difference. Thanks to donor support, the Garry Hurvitz Brain Science Center will soon be providing unparalleled brain and mental health care to our community. Its impact will also extend beyond our region as our research influences the understanding and treatment of brain disorders internationally.
