Mission Statement

The Grand Bend Area Health Services Foundation is a volunteer organization that receives and distributes financial resources necessary to meet the capital requirements of the Grand Bend Area Community Health Centre (GBACHC), and enhances health services available in the community.

About Us

Created in 2000, the Foundation was registered by Canada Customs and Revenue Agency as a Public Foundation in 2001. Charitable Registration #88673 8418 Rr0001

Why a Foundation?

Government grants cannot meet all of the community expectations for health care services, especially in rural areas. In order to enhance existing services and guarantee that community needs can be met in the future, private contributions and donations are needed today.Where do the donations go? Money is allocated to special projects within the Grand Bend Area Community Health Centre and is not allocated to day to day operating cost like facilities and wages. The Foundation has previously raised money for: items and equipment not funded by the government, a .75 acre piece of land north of the existing site for future expansion, and equipment for the Electronic Medical Records (EMR) project.
