Meet our new Business Cares Ambassadors
Our Business Cares program is empowering community-minded organizations to support the GBGH Foundation in whatever ways work best for their unique business. We have been fortunate to have many local businesses join us, collectively raising more than $50,000 last year.
This year, three of our Business Cares partners have stepped up to help others find unique ways to grow their business by supporting the GBGH Foundation. Get to know them (and their Business Cares strategy) below, and if you’d like to connect with one of them, please contact Christine Baguley, Philanthropy Officer (email@example.com or 705-526-1300 ext.5338).

Jenna Lorette, from The Mortgage Centre, makes a donation to the GBGH Foundation on the close of each mortgage in honour of the mortgage client (amount varies by mortgage amount).
“As Business Cares partners, we are investing in healthcare for our whole community.” ~ Jenna Lorette
Roberta Courtemanche is self-employed, and has chosen to donate a portion of her commission from the sale of Group Benefit Plans to the GBGH Foundation.
“I love the Business Cares program because it allows me to customize my donations to the scale of my business. By tying my giving to my new group benefits plans as well as my group benefits plan renewals, I am able to give when I receive income at various times during the calendar year. This way it is affordable to me, my family and my business.” ~ Roberta Courtemanche
Janice Stone is passionate about helping women, and she has chosen to donate 10% of her Ignite Your Confidence Digital Academy registration fee to the GBGH Foundation.
“As a wife, mom, stepmom, and now grandma, I am so grateful for our local hospital and the care it gives not only my family but also my community. The opportunity to combine the gift of what my business provides for me to support a hospital that cares so well for the people I love is a privilege.” ~ Janice Stone
