OneFoundation welcomes Joseph Maggiolo as new Board Chair

October 30, 2015

OneFoundation for Niagara Health System is pleased to announce the appointment of Joseph (Joe) Maggiolo as incoming Chair of the Foundation’s Board of Directors.  Joe was welcomed at the Foundation’s Annual General Meeting on October 22, 2015 by outgoing Chair Mike Watt.
Joe is a retired Police Officer, last serving as Staff Sergeant with the Niagara Regional Police Service where he spent the last 22 years of his 37-year policing career.  With a distinguished history of public service, the long-time Niagara Falls resident developed an interest for supporting his community on many fronts and is passionate about fundraising for local healthcare services.
“After policing for years in Niagara and calling it home for the last two decades, I care about the health and well-being of this community,” says Joe.  “In recent years we have seen incredible advancements at our hospitals that have been backed by many generous donors who have championed healthcare in our region.  Building on this success, I’m looking forward to leading the Foundation as we partner with new and long-standing donors to help keep our hospitals equipped to provide first-rate care.”
Prior to joining the OneFoundation Board in 2014, Joe served as Executive Board Member for the Greater Niagara General Hospital Foundation from 2007 to 2014.  His community involvement also includes appointments with the Order Sons of Italy Canada, serving as Club Italia’s President and holding positions of National Trustee and National Orator for the Order’s National Grand Council.  He was also Co-Chair of the Motorcycle Ride for Dad’s Niagara Chapter from 2010-2013 to helps raise funds and awareness for prostate cancer care.
Joe succeeds Mike Watt, Executive Vice-President at Walker Industries, who served as OneFoundation’s Board Chair for nearly two years and who will continue on as Past Chair.  “Mike’s leadership was instrumental in setting the foundation during a time of change as the local hospital foundations supporting Niagara Health System amalgamated.  We’re grateful that he is staying on with us during this exciting period to continue cultivating support for local healthcare.”
OneFoundation’s entire Board complement is comprised of volunteer business and community leaders from across the region who share an investment in the health of the residents of Niagara.
