Since our inception in 1998, The Foundation of CKHA has led activities formerly carried out by the Foundations of Public General Hospital, St. Joseph’s Hospital and Sydenham District Hospital.
Thanks to your generous support, we’ve helped raise more than $44 million for your local hospital. Your continued dedication to our mission is helping us to build stronger and healthier communities.
