The EKM Health Foundation is a charitable organization that supports initiatives that have a positive impact on the health of the people of Eastern Kings County, Nova Scotia.
The Foundation evolved from the closure in 1996 of the former Eastern Kings Memorial Hospital. Donations previously made to the former hospital were transferred to the Foundation with the intent that the income from these monies supports health-related projects.
The EKM Health Foundation is pleased to accept donations, bequests and other gifts. These gifts enable us to further promote a healthier community.
The Foundation also receives requests for financial support from various health-related organizations, funding projects through a bi-yearly grant and donation program.
Promoting a healthier community means working together for this important cause. We welcome your support of Foundation initiatives and would like to discuss with you how you might be involved.
Support comes in a variety of forms: gifts of cash, publicly traded securities, real estate, life insurance, bequests, and other property, to name a few.
If you are proposing to make a donation to the Foundation, you (or your financial or legal advisor) may wish to contact us to discuss some of the innovative and tax advantageous ways we can assist you in making a difference in the health of your community.
