In October 2019, The Walter & Maria Schroeder Foundation announced a substantial donation to St. Michael’s Hospital, Toronto Rehabilitation Institute, Toronto Western Hospital and McMaster Health Sciences as part of its commitment to improving health care services across the country.
The Foundation is contributing a percentage of proceeds from the Newfoundland and Labrador inspired musical No Change in the Weather, which has been travelling across the country since July. Mr. Schroeder is the Executive Producer and has committed 20 percent of proceeds to the hospitals.
Vice President & Chief Development Officer at UHN, Alexander Vaccari says “the continuous support of the Walter and Maria Schroeder Foundation transforms the way we can deliver care and innovate our services.” This contribution is one of many from the Walter & Maria Schroeder Foundation and highlights Schroeder’s commitment to improving Canada’s healthcare system.
“Canada’s healthcare system is desperate for philanthropy and I am pleased to be able to contribute a percentage of the profits earned from No Change in the Weather,” says Mr. Schroeder.
