Past Campaigns & Appeals

The Foundation raises funds to assist the Hospital in acquiring patient care equipment, supporting facility upgrades and educational programs.  Money raised cannot be used for hospital operating costs. (i.e. salaries, medical supplies, heat/light etc.)  These funds come from the Provincial Government through the Ministry of Health and Long Term Care.

Funds are raised by personal gifts, direct mail, special events, bequests, insurance, memorial gifts, etc.

Gifts are classified as charitable donations and are tax deductible.  Since its inception in 1985, the Foundation has raised $30M+.  Some examples of Hospital purchases through the Foundation:
