“We encourage philanthropic giving to Arnprior Regional Health to enhance patient/resident and client care today and into the future”

Arnprior Regional Health Foundation

Our Impact

The Arnprior Regional Health Foundation was founded in 2005 and we raise funds annually to support hospital and the Grove Retirement Home equipment purchases and the staff educational bursary program.  Over the years donors and volunteers from  West Ottawa, Mississippi Mills, Arnprior and McNab-Braeside have helped fund renovation of the hospital’s Emergency Department; purchase of digital mammography equipment and more recently the acquisition of digital x-ray equipment.  At the Grove Retirement Home monies have also purchased equipment to improve the resident home experience. These investments have improved the quality of patient and resident care.

Accountability

Arnprior Regional Health Foundation staff and volunteers are dedicated to ensuring that each donor dollar is used for its intended purpose and in the most cost effective manner possible.

The Arnprior Regional Health Foundation is a registered Canadian charity (Reg # 832583744 RR0001) and follows the Association for Healthcare Philanthropy (AHP) Donor Bill of Rights and its Code of Professional Standards.

To protect your privacy, we do not rent, trade or sell donor lists.
