Cristen L. Gleeson has been appointed as the new board chair of the Fraser Valley Health Care Foundation (FVHCF).

Gleeson comes to the position with extensive experience as a lawyer. In addition, she has spent many years dedicated to philanthropic work in the community. She has worked with the FVHCF, University of the Fraser Valley and Law Foundation of British Columbia.

“I am honoured to be the new chair of the FVHCF,” Gleeson said. “As the chair, I plan to prioritize expanding the foundation’s profile and donor knowledge of the foundation, and to target our funding in the areas most desperately needed within our hospitals. This will allow the foundation to continue supporting the local hospital, facilities and programs run by Fraser Health to improve the quality of health care for our local communities.”

The FVHCF raises funds for vital equipment and programs within the Fraser Health Authority. They serve the communities of Abbotsford, Mission, Chilliwack, Hope, Agassiz and Harrison Hot Springs.
