The COVID-19 pandemic, along with other societal trends, such as hospital funding restrictions and aging population, makes the examination and understanding of the health sector essential. This thesis examines the relationships between non-profit organizations, specifically hospitals and hospital foundations. Few studies have examined the relationships between hospitals and hospital foundations in a Canadian context. This research offers a better understanding of the relationships between hospitals and hospital foundations from a financial viewpoint. The research approach taken is qualitative and descriptive. The research strategy is a case study focusing on Children's Hospital of Eastern Ontario (CHEO) along with its associated foundations: CHEO Foundation, CHEO Research Institute, and Roger Neilson House (RNH). This study contributes to assisting hospitals and hospital foundation stakeholders in understanding the interrelationships between hospitals and their foundations. Results show a close financial relationship between the CHEO group of entities consistent with high levels of collaboration.
