Peter and Melanie Munk are among Canada’s most significant philanthropists, having donated more than $300 million to improve healthcare, support higher education, and advance public policy.
Born in Budapest, Hungary, Mr. Munk immigrated to Canada in 1948 and led an illustrious business and entrepreneurial career. Notably, he was the founder of Barrick Gold Corporation, the largest gold-mining company in the word. Among his many achievements, Mr. Munk was named a Companion of the Order of Canada, the country’s highest civilian honour.
Melanie Munk is a dedicated philanthropist and volunteer and has played an active role in promoting innovation and excellence at the Peter Munk Cardiac Centre. Mrs. Munk is a recipient of the Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Medal, which honors significant contributions and achievements by Canadians.
The Peter and Melanie Munk Patient & Family Learning Centre and Library at Toronto General Hospital is just one example of Peter and Melanie Munk’s generosity, which also included a gift to the Peter Munk Cardiac Centre in 2017 that constituted the single-largest gift to a hospital in Canadian history.
To quote Mr. Munk: “You can create wealth. You are entitled to the joy of this creation. But ultimately, society makes it possible, and this wealth should therefore flow back to society.”
A friend of University Health Network since 1986, the Paul B. Helliwell Foundation has given to a variety of programs, including thoracic surgery, orthopaedics, cardiology and transplantation. It is through the support of education however, that the Helliwell Foundation’s most significant and visible impact to UHN has been made.
Building on the late Paul B. Helliwell steadfast belief in supporting educational causes, the Foundation’s generosity led to the establishment of the Paul B. Helliwell Centre for Medical Education, an innovative teaching environment for health professionals. Located at Toronto General Hospital, the centre is home to the Wightman-Berris Academy; a major teaching academy within the Faculty of Medicine at the University of Toronto. Additionally, at Toronto Western Hospital, the Paul B. Helliwell Patient & Family Library provides a variety of resources for patients and their families.
