New work at STC
November, 2014 Partners For Discovery
The Toronto General & Western Hospital Foundation’s (TGWHF) Partners for Discovery is a special donor communication program focused on supporters who have made cumulative gifts and/or pledges of $1 million or more. To commemorate the fifth anniversary and to acknowledge the generosity of the Partners and Corporations, STC designed and produced a 160-page case bound book that featured portraits of members created by world-renowned photographer Onnig Cavoukian. The book also included information on the thirteen areas of care the University Health Network provides and highlighted the 23 World Firsts they have achieved since 1922.
“The book was a HUGE hit – I’ve been hearing nothing but rave reviews!! You are an amazing team to work with and I hope we’ll get the opportunity to work together again!!”
Kristi Spencer, Associate Director, Stewardship Toronto General & Western Hospital Foundation

Women ask Federal Leaders “Are you Up for Debate?” Organizations across Canada ask federal party leaders to commit to a debate on women in the upcoming election
Ottawa November 4, 2014 An alliance of 100 organizations from across the country has called for a federal election debate focused on women in 2015. Speaking at a morning press conference on Parliament Hill, YWCA Canada, the Native Women’s Association of Canada and Oxfam Canada said women’s rights must be an election issue, and called on all federal parties to make meaningful commitments to change women’s lives for the better, in Canada and abroad.
“What works for women works for Canada,” said Paulette Senior, CEO of YWCA Canada. “The first and only federal leaders’ debate on women took place thirty years ago. It’s long past time for the second one. For many women Canada is a better country than in 1984, but we haven’t achieved equality, and certainly not for all women.”
November 11, 2014 “You did a wonderful job… it was a very touching ad. It leapt out at you and was especially meaningful today. A big hug and thank you to everyone in your shop.”
Peter Herrndorf, President and CEO, National Arts Centre
“Thank you for the incredible ad in the Globe and Mail today. The photograph is magnificent, and the way the red accents pull the lighting from the pillars of the Salisbury Cathedral is gorgeous. It was a tour to remember! Many thanks for all of your hard work to give us such an iconic and distinctive look throughout the tour. We looked great in the U.K. and our poppies fit right in with that incredible art installation at the Tower of London.”
Rosemary Thompson, Director of Communications, National Arts Centre
