Foundation History

The Dawson Creek and District Hospital Foundation is a non-profit organization. The Foundation is managed by a volunteer board of directors and has been active in the South Peace since its inception in 1992.

The Foundation’s mission is to raise money and awareness via fundraising events. This helps to promote community engagement, as well as purchase equipment for the local hospital and care facilities.

Some of many events the organization hosts annually include:

Chances Benefit Dinner and Silent Auction
Sportsman’s Shoot
Farmington Fairways Golf Tournament
“Have a Heart Radiothon”

Previous completed renovated areas and equipment upgrades in the Hospital include:

Cancer Care Unit
Maternity Makeover
CT Scanner Update

 

Board of Directors

The Dawson Creek and District Hospital Foundation has strong representation from the community on its Board of Directors. Without these hardworking volunteers, the Foundation would be unable to continue helping our local hospital provide for its patients’ needs.
