The High River District Health Care Foundation was established on March 25th, 1986 and obtained charitable registration on October 16th, 1986. For the first five years hospital staff ran the Foundation in addition to their regular departmental responsibilities. Our only fund raising activity was the annual Dinner and Auction, which continues to this day. The 2018 Dinner raised over $110,000,for our 'Delivering a better experience' campaign.
The first direct mail campaign was held in November of 1992, a Donor recognition program put in place, and a Donor newsletter, Foundation Footnotes, was launched. It is still published bi-annually.
The Foundation received its first bequest in 1989 which established a permanent endowment fund for the Foundation. Over the years the endowment fund has been added to and now stands at over $1 million. The intent of the endowment fund is to ensure the long term viability of the Foundation.
In November 1991 the 'Be Our Partner' campaign was launched and the beginnings of a formal Fund Development program was put in place. In April of 1992 a Fund Development Co-ordinator was hired by the Foundation on a contract basis. The following December the Foundation’s office was re-located within the Hospital and on April 1, 1994 the Board decided to make the Development Co-ordinator a permanent position within the Foundation. In 2009 the Board hired a full-time Executive Director."

The Sharp Foundation
"Established in 1990, the SHARP Foundation is a Calgary-based non-profit organization committed to providing a continuum of care including housing, healthcare, and support to those living with HIV or at the highest risk of contracting HIV.
From 1993 to 1998, the SHARP Foundation's primary focus was providing palliative care as well as controlling symptoms and maximizing the quality of life in a caring, non-judgmental environment.
With the help of modern advancements in medication and treatment, our clients are now living longer, but still face marginalization within our community.
Today, The SHARP Foundation's main focus is helping residents live longer and have sustainable lives instead of primarily acting as a palliative care facility, but most importantly help residents become independent and integrate in the community.
SHARP operates six programs located in various Calgary residential neighbourhoods which provide affordable housing as well as medical and psycho-social needs. Generally the services are targeted to individuals living with HIV or at risk of contracting the virus. Overall, our clients come from diverse communities or backgrounds."
