Bill Griffis: A Legacy of Generosity

“I've been really lucky in life. I've done well and I'm capable of giving, so I'm doing it,” said Bill Griffis, who recently chose to leave a donation in his Will to the Thunder Bay Regional Health Sciences Foundation.

Having lived in multiple provinces, including Alberta and British Columbia, Bill returned to his hometown of Thunder Bay in 2012 to build a home on his family's property on Oliver Lake.

Bill chose to make his donation to the area of highest need. “I trust that the Health Sciences Foundation will use my donation where it's needed most at the time. I like knowing exactly that it will support the Hospital, but as to where it goes within the Hospital – I leave that to the experts there,” he said.
