Yash and Prem Kapur believe in supporting their community, much the same way as they’re committed to supporting their kids and grandkids.
“Why should our definition of family be restricted to our children and grandchildren,” says Yash. “Our community is our family at large.”
As a result, Yash and Prem have found many ways to support MSH – their community hospital. They’re loyal volunteers, generous legacy donors and make thoughtful donations throughout the year.
“We have this world-class hospital in Markham and it’s doing so much for our community – our family,” says Yash.
“We’ve lived here for 20 years and we feel it’s our obligation to give back.” The Kapurs also understand that MSH depends on the kind support of donors to take the best care of growing families.
“When our son, Rishi, was a member of MSH’s Board of Directors, he would tell us how expensive equipment is, how much it costs to help even one patient,” Prem explains.
And so, the Kapurs made the decision to give to MSH as a family. They hope other families will feel inspired to give too. “You don’t have to be a millionaire to make an impact,” says Yash. “Ordinary people can make a difference too.”
