Press Release

The Nicola Valley Health Care Endowment Foundation is very pleased to announce we have reached our fundraising goal of $550,000.00 to purchase equipment required for the Emergency Room Expansion Project. The generosity of Nicola Valley residents continues to amaze us.

All members of the community, as well as the travelling public, will benefit from this project, should they encounter medical or emergency distress in the Nicola Valley area.

We will continue to accept donations for ER equipment until the Grand Opening Event later this spring. The names of all donors who have contributed $100 and over to that point will be displayed on the Donor Wall, currently being designed.

Once the Grand Opening date is announced we will plan a celebration for the community. Our foundation will continue to accept donations for future equipment needs in local healthcare facilities.

It is with sincere, heartfelt gratitude we thank each and every one of our donors for their contribution to this cause.


The Nicola Valley Health Care Endowment Foundation is a charitable society dedicated, through fundraising, to the enhancement of healthcare in the Nicola Valley of British Columbia, Canada.



Fundraiser Update!

Thank You to the members of the Merritt Firefighters' Association for their generous donation.
They did a mini boot drive, passing around the boot among their members only, and came up with an impressive donation of $1,100!
