On December 16, 2022, Faris Team Real Estate announced our ongoing commitment to donating a total of $100,000 over the next 5 years during our presentation with Georgian Bay General Hospital (GBGH) Foundation.
“Health is one of the core values of our family, and helping the community have the best healthcare is important to us” says Mark Faris, CEO and Broker of Faris Team Real Estate Brokerage. “We are so excited for our partnership and continued commitment to support the Georgian Bay General Hospital.”
For every home sold or purchased, Faris Team Real Estate Brokerage donates $100 to a local charity partner within the markets they serve in Ontario. This is part of their mission to go full out® for their clients, team, and community. In addition, Faris Team Real Estate Brokerage recently sponsored additional fundraisers, including the 2022 GBGH Power of Giving Gala held on September 24, 2022.
“The government funds the bricks and mortar, but they don’t fund equipment. And it’s generous donations like this that actually allow us to give our staff the equipment needed to care for our community.” Matthew Lawson from the GBGH Foundation told us during a tour of the hospital building on the 16th of December.
Faris Team has supported the GBGH Foundation as their local partner in the North Simcoe community for the past three years, investing $75,000 in the Foundation’s Impact Fund.
Georgian Bay General Hospital’s Emergency Department is one of the busiest in the region. They see 40-45,000 visits per year, which is a huge amount given the size of the community (Midland has an estimated population of just shy of 17,000 people). To compare, the city of Barrie Ontario (with a population of 142,000) sees approximately 80,000 visits each year, despite having 8 times the number of inhabitants.
This support has helped to fund items like a portable x-ray machine, which brings vital diagnostic technology to the patient bedside; an electronic patient medical record system to ensure information is available to the care providers instantly; and cardiac monitors, which provide real-time information to the care teams to alert them of any changes in heartbeat, rhythm, blood pressure, and other key vitals.
“Our partnership with Faris Team is having a profound impact on the patients and care teams at GBGH,” shares Nicole Kraftscik, executive director of GBGH Foundation. “Supporting our hospital through every local Real Estate transaction sends such a strong message of commitment and caring. This lifts up and encourages the teams at GBGH and also puts important medical equipment and technology into their hands. It’s a win-win!”
The GBGH Foundation is a proud partner of Georgian Bay General Hospital and the people of North Simcoe. The Foundation provides funds to the hospital to buy medical equipment, sustain programs and assist the hospital in maintaining its position as a leader in providing quality community-based healthcare.

Our mission is to go full out® for our clients, our team, and our community. When you give back to the community, everybody wins, which is why 100$ from every home bought or sold is given back to the community partners. Faris Cares is so honoured to be able to give back, thanks to our wonderful clients and their support.
