Site
Councils

The Calgary Health Foundation is currently recruiting volunteers to join our Site Fund Development Councils. If you are interested in volunteering, please contact Laurel Williams at laurel.williams@calgaryhealthfoundation.com.

Fund Development Councils

Fund Development Councils raise funds in support of advancing health care in Calgary and beyond. Fund Development Councils at the sites raise funds for the Calgary Health Foundation in supporting breakthroughs and innovation at each acute care site and the Calgary Zone. Volunteers develop new relationships with the donor community and AHS site personnel. As key volunteer ambassadors, members raise public awareness about the Calgary Health Foundation (CHF) mission to advance care, wellness, and research through active fundraising including and not limited to, identifying potential donors, soliciting, and thanking donors.
