Where Your Money Goes

In 2016-17, thousands of donors generously supported Holland Bloorview Foundation with donations towards research, programs and services for kids with disabilities.

Your support enabled our researchers to develop new mobility and communication devices, investigate clinical therapies for kids with autism and continue the ground-breaking education materials and treatments in the world of pediatric concussion.

Thanks to you, our families received support through weekend, March Break and summer respite camps and were provided support for those in financial need through our Family Support Fund.
