OUR PURPOSE

The Sooke and Juan de Fuca Health Foundation

Our mission is to encourage philanthropy in support of health-related programs, facilities, research, academic pursuits and sustainable capital investment. Through contributions from donors, the foundation assembles and administers permanent pools of capital so the returns can be perpetually reinvested in our communities. The foundation complements and supports other charitable agencies.

Purpose

To support the development of programs and services that improve health and wellbeing of the citizens in this rapidly growing region. The Sooke Region includes the communities from Port Renfrew to Becher Bay on Vancouver Island, British Columbia.

How
  • We do this by creating awareness of the broad range of personal, social, economic and environmental factors that determine individual and population health, and engaging donors in our vision

  • We partner with donors to support a range of sustainable health and allied services in the Sooke Region

  • Success depends on long-term resources for long-term solutions – so we work with donors to build sustainable endowment funds that ensure vital futures for communities
