Trillium Mutual Insurance Continues Commitment to Rural Ontario with $30,000 Pledge to the Wingham Hospital Our Hospital, Our Future Campaign

The Trillium ROOTS Community Fund has made a pledge of $30,000.00 to the Wingham & District Hospital Foundation’s Our Hospital, Our Future Campaign. While Trillium Mutual Insurance is located in Listowel, the ROOTS Council was quick to see the far reaching benefits of improvements to the Wingham & District Hospital for the entire surrounding rural community.        

In recognition of this donation, Trillium Mutual Insurance will be named as the sponsor of one of the exam rooms in the new primary care clinic being developed in the new healthcare campus on the site of the former Wingham Public School. Trillium Mutual Insurance CEO Joe Dietrich said he was “proud to commit this donation to a project that has a unique vision for the future of rural healthcare.”

The Trillium ROOTS Community Fund was established by Trillium Mutual Insurance Company in Listowel, to administer (at arm’s length), the company’s philanthropy program.   Through ROOTS, Trillium continues to provide meaningful financial assistance and support to rural communities in which its policyholder members live and serve.  The company will be announcing shortly the amount of funding that will be available for capital projects in the 2016 calendar year. Funding focus continues to be in the areas of   Healthcare, Recreation & Wellness, Emergency Response (Fire Fighters), Agricultural and Eco/Sustainability.  More information about the ROOTS “Recognizing Our Opportunity To Support” Community Fund can be found at www.trilliummutual.com.  

The Wingham & District Hospital Foundation’s Our Hospital, Our Future Campaign is a $4 million capital fundraising campaign supporting the expansion of six departments at the Wingham & District Hospital, replacement of digital imaging equipment and the creation of a community healthcare campus. So far, the campaign team has raised over $1 million in pledges. All gifts to the Our Hospital, Our Future Campaign can be pledged over a period of up to five years.
