About Us

The Bonnyville Health Foundation is a dedicated community, volunteer-led, organization that was formed in 1997. Our work is performed by the community, for the community. Since its inception, we have raised $1.9 for our mission of vibrant local healthcare.

Working closely with the community and through partnership, the Covenant Bonnyville Health Foundation focuses its efforts on raising funds to purchase equipment and to support programs throughout the Bonnyville Health Centre. We honour the legacy left by the Sisters of Charity of Notre Dame D’Evron and Duclos Hospital, by putting community dollars into action. We share our founders’ commitment to the health of our citizens and their families.
