How you can make a difference
We have researched all the various mechanisms for funding the capital costs of a health centre on Bowen, and like every other Gulf Island, we will be responsible for building our own community-owned facility. While we will continue to explore and pursue any and all possibilities for funding from the Ministry of Health and our local health authority, we must turn to the community for a successful fundraising campaign. We prefer to be mortgage free so that any excess revenue after operating costs can be used to further enhance and improve health services on Bowen.
Our goal is to raise $5.0 million to cover the costs associated with design, construction, fixtures, furnishings and equipment. This amount will help assure a safe, effective healthcare facility, designed and constructed for current and future health service needs of the community.

You can help bring health care close to home by building our community health centre through your pledges and donations. All donations over $25 will receive a tax receipt.
