Investing in the health of your community

Interior Health's foundations are the public face of our hospitals and health-care centres. Each foundation is made up of a board of respected community leaders, volunteers, and a professional staff of fund raisers and support services.

Our foundations raise funds to purchase vital medical, diagnostic, and surgical equipment and to support patient programs and services in their communities. Each foundation works to meet the challenge of limited health-care budgets and increasing demands for services. Thanks to the generosity of individuals, businesses and service clubs, the health-care experiences are enhanced for patients and their families.
