The St. Francis Valley Healthcare Foundation

What is the St. Francis Valley Healthcare Foundation?

Incorporated in 2001, our very active registered charity works in partnership with three local healthcare organizations in the Madawaska Valley to fundraise for medical equipment and services based on the long-term plans for the healthcare needs of the community.

What organizations does it serve?

The Foundation raises funds to ensure support for equipment purchases and services at:

  • St. Francis Memorial Hospital (including Rainbow Valley Community Health Centre)
  • Madawaska Valley Hospice Palliative Care program
  • Valley Manor Nursing Home

Many people are unaware that the government simply does not provide funding for healthcare equipment. Our local healthcare organizations rely on the generosity of the community to ensure that they have the specialized equipment and support they need to provide exceptional care.

How can I help?

There are many ways you can support the St. Francis Valley Healthcare Foundation.

  • Host a third-party fundraising event.
  • Take part in one of our signature events throughout the year.
  • Make a gift in memory or in honour of a loved one.
  • If a local healthcare provider made a positive impact on your visit, recognize them with a Guardian Angel nomination!
  • We are always accepting In Memoriam Donations, which is a unique & special way to honour your loved one or ask your lawyer about leaving a Gift in Your Will.
  • Consider joining our Monthly Giving Club, and spread your gift overtime throughout the year.
  • One-time donations of any amount that benefit local healthcare are always appreciated!
