SickKids Innovators Q&A: Stacey KlineFocused on driving impact and mobilizing resources for good, Stacey’s work as an Innovator has helped make a difference in some of the highest priority needs at SickKids. Her devotion to philanthropy has led her to volunteer on the Advisory Council, participate in Signature Events like SickKids GetLoud, and to encourage others to donate whenever possible.

1. Why SickKids? What attracted you to the Innovators Program?
I got involved with SickKids about 7 years ago – as soon as I had my first child. She was born perfectly healthy. It hit me how lucky that is, and how lucky we were to have SickKids available to us if she had needed medical care. Supporting SickKids seemed obvious – it seemed like a must!
The Innovators program was just starting when I first reached out to SickKids to see how I could get involved. It was the perfect timing. Innovators offered an amazing way to participate in the SickKids community – to learn about the incredible things happening at the Hospital, to meet lots of other people who value SickKids, and best of all, to have the chance to make a contribution that would have a meaningful impact because it was pooled with others’. Just as supporting SickKids seemed obvious, joining Innovators seemed like a no-brainer!
