Bowmanville Hospital Foundation



Quite simply, we are the fundraising arm for Bowmanville Hospital. For the past 45 years, the Foundation has inspired the community to help care for capital improvements and essential medical equipment needs for Bowmanville Hospital. Your gift to the Bowmanville Hospital Foundation stays in Clarington.

The Foundation works closely with hospital leadership, as well as our doctors, nurses and health care teams to ensure that your gift makes an impact on the lives of patients visiting Bowmanville Hospital.

Bowmanville Hospital Foundation (formerly Memorial Hospital Foundation – Bowmanville), was founded in 1976 to support the easternmost hospital of Lakeridge Health.

The Foundation is governed by a volunteer Board of Directors and is managed by a dedicated staff of professionals who ensure that your gift is used effectively and efficiently right here at Bowmanville Hospital.


In support of the redevelopment and expansion of Bowmanville Hospital, the Bowmanville Hospital Foundation is embarking on the largest capital campaign in its history.

How your gift will be used

Did You Know Hospital Equipment is 100% Funded by the Community?

Medical equipment needs upgrading every five to ten years. While the government does provide hospitals with the essentials, it does not provide the funding required to purchase and/or replace vital equipment needed to care for our patients.


Planned giving means creating a lasting legacy that ensures Bowmanville Hospital will be here to support the health care needs of Clarington for future generations.

If you have decided to remember the Foundation in your estate plans, please let us know. We appreciate the opportunity to say thank you and recognize your loyalty through the J.W. Alexander Starlight Society. If you wish to remain anonymous, we will respect your wishes.

We appreciate the decision to leave a planned gift is a very personal commitment. It is important for you to discuss your plans with your family and your financial and legal advisors. They will help to ensure your gift fits your personal circumstances and that you maximize any tax advantages.
