Your donations make an impact on our community.
Each dollar you donate stays right here in our community to help fund the healthcare needs of you and your neighbours.
Through the generous support of our donors, the Cobequid Health Centre Foundation funds, in full, a significant amount of the medical equipment required each year in order to provide quality care.
Below, please find a few of the ways you can get involved. Together, through fundraising and participation in these events and activities, we are growing and improving access to healthcare for our community.
Gift of Light
Annually starting in November, Cobequid Foundation captures the spirit of the season with the gift of light program. Donors can make a donation in honor or in memory of a loved one. A tree lighting ceremony is held in December and the names of each individual being remembered is read aloud and an ornament is placed on Cobequid’s Christmas tree. This tree shines brightly until January 6th.
In addition, there is an online auction featuring items donated by our community. These items make perfect gifts for your friends, family and perhaps even something special to treat yourself too. All while supporting healthcare in your community.
May is Cobequid Month – a month long campaign which raises funds and awareness for the Cobequid Health Centre Foundation. It is a celebration of all that Cobequid Centre means to our community.
To celebrate, the Foundation holds barbeques, cake cutting, bake sales, grocery bagging and other activities in the community. Each year we also hold a raffle on a painting generously donated by local artist Ruth O’Connell. Local volunteer groups and businesses often hold casual days and other events at their own locations and present a donation during this month.
All funds raised places critical medical equipment into the hands of our medical team so they can better care for your family right here in our community.
