Health care foundation launches new website

The FVHCF serves Mission Memorial Hospital and other facilities

The Fraser Valley Health Care Foundation (FVHCF) has launched its new website, which will allow the public to gain a better understanding of who is involved and what they accomplish.

“We’ve been around for almost 13 years, and there are still some Mission area residents who don’t realize that we are their hospital foundation and that money raised in their community, stays in their community,” said executive director Vicki Raw. “We’ve been so busy fundraising and running campaigns, we’ve been a little too quiet when it comes to promoting ourselves.”

Visitors are able to make online donations to the FVHCF, and read about all the facilities and programs under the foundation’s umbrella.

Unlike traditional hospital foundations which each serve a single acute care facility, the FVHCF raises funds for hospitals in Mission, Abbotsford, Chilliwack and Hope, as well multiple residential care facilities, Christine Morrison Hospice, the Agassiz Community Health Centre and community based health care programs throughout the Fraser Valley Regional Hospital District.

The website is fvhcf.org.
