Sick Kids Foundation

Our mission:

We inspire our communities to invest in health and scientific advances to improve the lives of children and their families in Canada and around the world. 

Our vision: 

Healthier Children. A Better World.™

  • Established in 1972, SickKids Foundation raises funds on behalf of The Hospital for Sick Children.
  • The Foundation’s fundraising is driven by the belief that improving the health and well-being of children is one of the most powerful ways to improve society.

Community support, separate and distinct from government and granting agencies, is a critical source of funding for SickKids.

  • In the fiscal year that ended March 31, 2014, SickKids Foundation invested $129.3 million in child health research, learning and care.

The Hospital for Sick Children

Established in 1875, The Hospital for Sick Children (SickKids) was the first paediatric hospital in Canada. SickKids is known as one of the world’s top children’s hospital. It is Canada’s leading centre dedicated to improving children’s health and home to Canada’s largest, hospital-based child health research institute.  

Innovation, excellence, compassion and family-centred care distinguish SickKids and enable its success in using research discoveries to quickly improve patient care. SickKids treats more than 100,000 patients every year and is home to more than 10,000 staff, researchers and volunteers.

SickKids Foundation

Established in 1972, SickKids Foundation raises funds on behalf of The Hospital for Sick Children. SickKids Foundation is the largest charitable funder of child health research, learning and care in Canada. Today, SickKids Foundation has more than 262,000 donors. In 2012-2013, SickKids Foundation raised a record-breaking total of $112 million and invested $92.6 million in child health care, research and education.

THINK Together

While different employee groups throughout THINK Together may perform varied functions in different work environments and geographic locations, the organization’s culture is the “common thread” that binds us together. We are a mission and values driven organization. At the core, we are in the business of Teaching, Helping, Inspiring and Nurturing Kids to become productive adults and responsible, contributing members of society.  Likewise, as a learning organization, our goal is to create a work environment where employees are inspired and supported to give their very best and keep developing at a personal and professional level. We hire employees with high integrity and skill, who commit to the principles of service above self and continuous learning.

Vision

Educational excellence and equity for all kids.

Mission

Create opportunities for all kids to discover their passions and reach their full potential.

Values

Be accountable to our mission
Service above self
Treat others with dignity and respect
Open and honest communication
Collaborate internally and externally
Honor our commitments
Embrace diversity
Be humble
Persevere
Enjoy the journey and have fun!
Continuous learning

The culture at THINK Together promotes a collaborative approach that encourages employees to combine their diverse knowledge, talents and expertise in flexible, manageable group-work efforts.  This approach aims to foster a supportive structure that facilitates innovation, efficiency and agility to embrace change and keep up with rapid growth.  We strive to develop, maintain and reward a culture of trust and teamwork.

Focused on achieving the desired results, we believe in aligning employee performance and professional development with THINK Together’s annual strategic goals and priorities.  Our performance management program is rooted in the general philosophy that every employee’s contribution matters and that every employee genuinely desires to do a good job.  Our performance management program is as committed to forward-looking developmental goals, as it is to extracting valuable insights from past performance.

  • We believe that low-income children and children of color have the same bell curve of human potential as society at-large.
  • We believe that children in this category comprise the majority of children in California.
  • We believe that education is the key ingredient for these students to reach their full potential and for California and the United States to reach its full potential.
  • We believe that excellent schools are just part of the equation. We believe that all students need the equivalent of an upper-middle class support system outside of school to reach their full potential.
  • California is a $1.7 trillion economy with the greatest collection of companies on the planet. We believe, through public and private sources, we have the resources to build these systems.
  • We believe that people are their most fulfilled when they are giving of their time and treasure sacrificially and are connected to a cause larger than themselves.
  • We believe that the proper education of all of our children must be our state and nation’s top priority and that must be reflected in the budget’s and priorities of its governments, its private institutions and its private citizens.
  • We believe that immigration has been, and remains, a dynamic contributor to America’s success. Countries that don’t reproduce at high enough levels and that don’t allow adequate immigration are aging and will not be able to sustain their quality of life.
  • We believe that educating this generation of immigrants is the key to energizing the next generation of American economic success and civic vitality.
  • We believe this is the responsibility of all people – voters, tax payers, volunteers and donors – not just our schools.
  • We believe that the health and welfare of society’s children is the best reflection of the health and welfare of that society.
  • We believe our nation is too divided and the time has come for this state and nation to unite around the education of its children.
  • We believe that if we, as a society, answer this call to action, that America’s greatest days are ahead and that this generation of young people will be the next “great” generation.
  • We believe that THINK Together can play a catalytic role in making this dream a reality.

Half of our clients are children. Did you know that 1 out of 6 Americans suffer from hunger and 1 in 5 children in Orange County don’t have enough food to eat? Please join us in fighting hunger in our community!

Our mission is to meet the basic physical needs of those who are hurting and broken- hearted in our community. The Storehouse exists  primarily to distribute food, clothing, furniture and necessary household items to those in need. This is accomplished through the ongoing programs and continuous assistance provided by our organization throughout the year.

“Our mission is to provide assistance to those who are struggling, and we strongly believe in making a difference by offering a hand -up, rather than just a hand -out.”

Blair Pietrini, Founder of Grateful Hearts

In addition we provide  the daily distribution of food items and other goods from our facility to individuals, families and agencies. We give aide to numerous outside organizations as well, including  provisions for  disaster relief and ongoing resources to organizations overseas, including Haiti, Rwanda, Uganda and Egypt.

Volunteers for this program sort, stock, and bag canned and boxed foods as well as fresh food and produce. Some carry groceries and others train to take appointments and distribute the food to our clients.

Volunteers may also sort and hang clothing, as well as restock the clothing distribution room.

Businesses, organizations, and groups are encouraged to come check us out without going through orientation. We often have special projects that your group can participate in. Just give us advance notice and we will do our best to fit your group with a worthwhile project!  If any members of your group decide to return , we have volunteer orientation and training twice a month.

Individuals may also volunteer any single day for a few hours or  a half or full day without training. If you want to return, you are also welcome to participate in one of our volunteer training sessions held on Saturdays twice monthly.

These volunteers can be found in every area of GH including our food and clothing distribution, our thrift stores, and even working as personal assistants to staff, taking notes during important meetings!

Two of our students with special needs have even learned to take the bus by themselves!
