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.

The Causes
We Champion

80% of Albertans depend on our health system each year. Sooner or later, and often unexpectedly, every one of us will seek urgent medical help — for trauma, serious illness, a heart attack, stroke, preterm birth and countless other afflictions. When we do, we all want the best possible health outcomes for ourselves and our loved ones. Nothing less than the best care available is acceptable when survival and quality of life are at stake. That’s why breakthroughs in care, wellness and research are needed now!

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, 12 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.
