Kirstin Ling

Kirstin is currently a Principal Gift Manager at Toronto General and Western Hospital Foundation. Touched by personal experience, Kirstin made the transition from working in youth-focused international development organizations to health care. Growing up in Toronto, within the Sunnybrook catchment area, Kirstin was motivated and driven by the opportunity to serve her community.

Given her role, Kirstin sees the powerful impact philanthropy has on the future of medicine, and each step along the way. She believes making this community of philanthropists more inclusive and diverse – more reflective of the communities they’re impacting – will help us reach extraordinary new heights and milestones.

Beyond her work, Kirstin is driven by the passion to make a difference and help others. She serves as a long-time volunteer at Ronald McDonald House Toronto and a member of the Bishop Strachan School Old Girls Association. This devotion to her community is a trait that weaves through all areas of Kirstin’s work and personal life.
