The year end donations helped the foundation’s “Angel” campaign surpass its goal of $200,000 and the “Lend Your Hand” campaign reach over $1 million.
This year was the 15th annual “Be an Angel” fundraising campaign, which runs throughout the entire month of November. It used fundraising methods such as a formal gala, a three day radio-thon, as well as help from financial institutions to help raise money.
The generosity of the donors was tremendous this year, as the “Be an Angel” Campaign raised just over $300,000 in one months time.
November’s “Angel” efforts supported a much larger goal of the $1.2 million “Lend Your Hand” Campaign, launched last spring to purchase equipment for Fort St. John’s new hospital.
The desired equipment are pieces not included in the Hospital’s equipment budget of $25 million given to Northern Health.
Through the fund raising campaign, the Fort St. John Hospital Foundation aims to purchase a digital mammography machine, seven wireless fetal heart monitors, seven specialized treatment chairs for kidney dialysis and 55 vital sign monitors.
To date, $1,000,744.64 has been raised to support the Fort St. John Hospital Foundation.
