Faris Team renews partnership with $100K pledge

Nine people stand outside the emergency entrance to GBGH holding a giant cheque for $100,000 made out to the GBGH Foundation from the Faris Team.

On December 16, 2022, Faris Team Real Estate Brokerage announced their ongoing commitment to donating a total of $100,000 over the next 5 years during their presentation with Georgian Bay General Hospital (GBGH) Foundation.

“Health is one of the core values of our family, and helping the community have the best health care is important to us,” says Mark Faris, CEO and Broker of Faris Team Real Estate Brokerage. “We are so excited for our partnership and continued commitment to support the Georgian Bay General Hospital.”

For every home sold or purchased, Faris Team Real Estate Brokerage donates $100 to a local charity partner within the markets they serve in Ontario. This is part of their mission to go full out® for their clients, team, and community. Faris Team Real Estate Brokerage recently sponsored the 2022 GBGH Power of Giving Gala held on September 24, 2022.

Faris Team has generously supported the GBGH Foundation as their local partner in the North Simcoe community for the past three years, investing $75,000 in the Foundation’s Impact Fund. This support has helped to fund items like a portable x-ray machine, which brings vital diagnostic technology to the patient bedside; an electronic patient medical record system to ensure information is available to the care providers instantly; and cardiac monitors, which provide real-time information to the care teams to alert them of any changes in heartbeat, rhythm, blood pressure, and other key vitals.

“Our partnership with Faris Team is having a profound impact on the patients and care teams at GBGH,” shares Nicole Kraftscik, executive director of GBGH Foundation. “Supporting our hospital through every local Real Estate transaction sends such a strong message of commitment and caring. This lifts up and encourages the teams at GBGH and also puts important medical equipment and technology into their hands. It’s a win-win!”
