About the Kaye Competition

The Kaye Competition is a partnership between the University of Alberta Hospital (UAH), Kaye Edmonton Clinic (KEC) and the University Hospital Foundation (UHF), made possible through a $30 million transformational donation from Mr. Donald Kaye to UHF in 2012. This gift is one of the largest donations in the history of Canadian healthcare philanthropy.
