A Brief History of the Central Northeast Health Foundation

In 1989 the Gander and District Hospital Board formed a Fund Development Committee (originally operating under the name of the Gander & District Health Foundation, and now known as the Central Northeast Health Foundation) to assist with the pressing need to raise funds for the purchase of medical and medically-related equipment for healthcare facilities within the central northeast region of Newfoundland. Until 2005 the Foundation operated as a subcommittee of the Central East Health Care Institutions Board.

With the regionalization of health boards across Newfoundland & Labrador which began in 2004, our Foundation began the process of becoming a stand alone charitable organization. After over 15 years of operations, our Foundation was incorporated on January 19, 2005. In April 2005 the Central Northeast Health Foundation was assigned its own charitable registration number.

Purpose and Target Audience

The Central Northeast Health Foundation funds priority medical equipment, programs and services for patients, residents and clients served by the healthcare professionals of the Central Regional Health Authority. This charity does not currently fund research projects, physical plant renovations and expansions, or the salaries or operational costs of healthcare employees or departments.
