Joseph Brant

Why Give?

Campaign Cabinet

The Our New Era Campaign and it’s $60 million goal is the largest fundraising campaign in the history of Burlington. The redevelopment of the Joseph Brant Hospital is a once in a lifetime project that builds upon a long history of community support, and asks for continued support for the future. This campaign will succeed because leaders engage and invest with us to fulfill our mission.

To support our efforts, we have selected a group of prominent community members to form the Our New Era Campaign Cabinet. This group of dedicated volunteers represents all aspects of our community and will provide strategic direction, advice and guidance as we work toward achieving our goals.
