About
Us

Calgary Health Foundation is a philanthropic organization established in 1996 to unite donors, hospitals, health care providers and community partners with the ambitious aim of revolutionizing health outcomes.

Together, we continue to transform lives by establishing extraordinary health programs — early stroke intervention, a world-class urology clinic and brain institute, limb preservation and advanced trauma centres.

We have served the community for over 25 years, and, thanks to the generosity of our donors, Calgary Health Foundation has raised over $528 million for health care.

Care

When faced with an urgent health care need, there is nothing more important. Health care providers are on the frontlines of our fight for the best possible outcomes in these life-changing moments – like they were for Maya’s family. By investing in new technologies, equipment and enhanced facilities, we help ensure frontline staff have the necessary tools to give all patients a fighting chance.

Wellness

Our health is pivotal to the things we enjoy most – time with family, enjoying the great outdoors, travel and meeting new friends. Our donors passionately believe that investments in wellness lead to a healthier community. When something feels like it could take you away from the people and things you love, like Yalda facing postpartum depression, let’s ensure support is available.

Research

Through research, we can change statistics and improve health outcomes for our community. As the incredible story of the McTavish family’s NICU experience demonstrates, every positive outcome is the direct result of countless hours of research. Together, we can work to support clinical research that directly addresses our community’s health issues.

Calgary Health Foundation advances care, wellness and research where it’s needed most and where it’s needed next for Calgary’s four adult acute care hospitals, 14 Carewest facilities and a broad range of community health programs. We welcome donations for urgent needs and those designated for a specific purpose (provided the gift can be reasonably utilized). To assist with the Foundation’s operational costs, including activities such as gift processing, receipting, investment management, stewardship and granting, a fee of five percent on all designated gifts will be allocated for administration.
