Welcome to the Durham and Community Health Care Foundation

The Durham and Community Health Care Foundation was established in 1997 to raise funds for the Durham Hospital, helping to ensure and maintain a strong and healthy community.

 Since 2005, the Foundation has directed more than $725,000 to the Durham Hospital  to purchase a wide array of new equipment and fund facility upgrades and repairs. The Foundation has helped purchase diagnostic and treatment equipment, tools to help provide enhanced patient care, laboratory equipment and facility improvements.  The Foundation has also created an Investment and Endowment Fund with a respected firm to ensure quality, local healthcare for future generations.  Gifts from Estates and Wills and Major Gifts of over $5,000 may be designated to the Endowment Fund.

 Since 1997, the Foundation has become established as a trusted link between the generous residents of West Grey, Southgate, Durham and surrounding area and the needs of their local hospital.

Please continue to support the Foundation in building a healthy community with a strong and vibrant hospital.


Please consider designating the Durham and Community Health Care Foundation for bequests in a Will and for gifts made In Memory. These gifts help ensure the future of the Durham Hospital.
