WDMH Foundation



Since 1993, the WDMH Foundation has supported renovations and additions to the Winchester District Memorial Hospital (WDMH), as well as education and research. But our main purpose is to support the purchase of medical equipment for our hospital. Many people are surprised to learn that the provincial government does not provide hospital funding for medical equipment purchases.

Because of our donors, millions of dollars have been given to WDMH, making an incredible difference for care, close to home.  Winchester District Memorial Hospital would not be what it is today without donor support!

Our Commitment to You

Together with current and future donors who – like us – value excellence in local health care, we work to inspire and support their investments of time and financial gifts.

We work hard to ensure that our donors trust us, feel our gratitude, are well-informed, and enjoy positive giving experiences. In all things, our donors are #1.

We value accountability, transparency, integrity – and celebrating our donors’ achievements and successes along the way.

Our Impact

Actually, we want to talk about YOUR impact!  WDMH Foundation donors are continuously helping to keep excellent health care close to home! Although the provincial government does not provide hospital funding for medical equipment, our donors are making sure that the equipment is there!

Our donors have also supported renovations and additions to the hospital, as well as education and research!

We value and we thank our donors – thank you for being our partners in keeping health care close to home.

How your gift will be used

Every legacy gift is so meaningful and special.

It’s always such an honour to be trusted with someone’s legacy and to know how important local health care is to them.

Anyone can make a bequest. The amount doesn’t matter – but supporting a cause you cherish, leaving a legacy as well as financial disbursements, matters a lot.

It’s one of the most important things you can do to build the world you’d like to see.

The hospital has annual and ongoing needs of $1 million to $2 million annually. Unfortunately, since the hospital doesn’t receive provincial funding to purchase equipment, that responsibility falls to those – like you – who care about access to quality, local health care.

Since the WDMH Foundation was formed in 1993, gifts have mostly funded equipment purchases, but have also funded current hospital programs, launched new ones, and maintained and redeveloped our hospital.

Your legacy gift will represent the financial resources your family, friends, community, and our hospital can depend on in the future – and help our community for years to come.
