Together, we can deliver the highest level of healthcare close to home.
We are fortunate to live in a province and country where government funding finances the daily operation and administration of hospitals. However, it is our donors who take us to the next, advanced level of care through caring, quality and innovation; a level of care well beyond what might be achieved solely through government funding.
Donor dollars provide specialized equipment and facilities, and support the continuing education and training of our staff, all of which serve to distinguish the Carleton Place and District Memorial Hospital (CPDMH) as a hospital patients recommend to their family and friends. Donor dollars do not fund the day-to-day operational costs of our Hospital, like administrative salaries and severances.
Donors to the CPDMH Foundation can support our Hospital and local health care by giving to a specific department or by supporting the highest-priority needs of the CPDMH Foundation. Either way, donations advance the standard of care and assist in the development of critical initiatives which would not otherwise be funded.
The CPDMH Foundation is committed to ethical and transparent fundraising:
