What is the Equipment Fund?
The "Equipment Fund" has been designed to provide funding for replacement and/or new equipment at the county's regional acute care centre – the Cumberland Regional Health Care Centre (CRHCC).
Who administers the Fund?
The Cumberland Health Care Foundation is responsible for the collection & receipting of all donations to the Equipment Fund.
Who decides on what can be funded?
In consultation with the CRHCC and NSHA, the Foundation considers all applications for funding.
How much of my personal donation actually goes to the Equipment Fund verses to administrative costs?
- Equipment Tribute donations: 100% of the donation amount received
- General donations made in person or on-line: 100% of the donation amount received
- Community special events: if you are attending a special event hosted in support of Equipment then it would be anticipated that the net income of the event (gross sales less expenses) would be donated to the Equipment Fund. You should clarify this with the organizers of the event being held. If you are seeking a charitable receipt for your donation, you should ask the organizer directly how this is going to be addressed.
