On March 21, 2013, Tracy Malayney, Kinsmen Foundation Board Chair, announced a $400,000 donation to St. Paul's Hospital in support of the acquisition of a digital transmission electron microscope which will serve patients from across Saskatchewan.
"We all care about our families, friends, and neighbours," said Tracy. "When one of us is not well, we all worry. Knowing a person's condition, cause, and treatment accurately and in a timely manner is important. Telemiracle is the coming together of family, friends, and neighbours looking out for one another. For these reasons, Kinsmen Foundation is pleased to support St. Paul's Hospital in the purchase of Saskatchewan's new digital transmission electron microscope."
This microscope is necessary to accurately diagnose and stage disease for those suffering from kidney, cardiac, and neurological illnesses. St. Paul's hospital is recognized province-wide for its facility and skilled professionals in treating kidney disease, performing dialysis, and offering transplant services. "Acquiring a new digital transmission electron microscope is paramount, not only for our hospital, but for this health region and the province as a whole, says Dr. Joe Blondeau, Interim Head of Pathology and Lab Medicine for the University of Saskatchewan and Saskatoon Health Region. "access to this equipment ensures that our skilled technologists, pathologists, and clinicians will continue to provided the accepted standard of care here in Saskatchewan."
It is thanks to the people of Saskatchewan and their generous donations that the Kinsmen Foundation is able to help with such an important and innovative piece of technology!
Honoured Supporter Award 2012
The Kinsmen Foundation is pleased to recognize Arlene Kish of Bruno, Saskatchewan, as our 2012 Honoured Supporter Award recipent. A programme of the Association of Fundraising Professionals, the award was presented at a luncheon on November 15, 2012, celebrating National Philanthropy Day.
Every organization has a need for professional services. Many charities have the luxury of having such a professional willing to donate their time. The Kinsmen Foundation has been the fortunate beneficiary of the professional services of Arlene Kish. But Arlene has upped the ante by donating her heart along with her time. In 1997 Arlene started contributing to the organization her skills as a specialist in bookkeeping, Payroll, Human Resources and Labour Relations, a Sage Certified Consultant and a CMA. Her generosity has come as countless hours of consulting. Making the professional personal, Arlene also volunteers counting donations at Telemiracle, promoting Telemiracle, making donations, and encouraging her family’s commitment to “Helping People Every Day.”
Past recipents of the award include Jay's Moving and Storage, The Sask Valley Riding Club and the Federal Superanuates Association.
