Festival of Trees

$1.75 Million Raised for The Cause

The University Hospital Foundation’s 2021 Festival of Trees is very grateful for the incredible generosity of corporate sponsors, donors, and festivalgoers. It was those who made it possible to reach our goal to raise $1 million to improve the quality of life of Albertans living with end-stage kidney disease.

A special thanks to Qualico Homes who contributed $750,000 – a generous gift that helped UHF surpass its 2021 fundraising goal and offer critical support to West Edmonton Kidney Care.

The 2021 theme of the Festival of Trees was “Share the Joy” and the University Hospital Foundation welcomed the entire community to celebrate the holidays with the traditions and cultures that make our community strong and vibrant. It’s about bringing the people and cultures of Edmonton and surrounding areas together to make new friends, laugh and play, share joy, and advance care for those who need our help to live healthier lives.
