President’s Message – May 10, 2023

As the President & CEO of Chatham-Kent Health Alliance Foundation (CKHAF), I have been blessed to witness the passion and commitment that our community has for its local hospital.

As May is Leave a Legacy Month, it is an excellent time to highlight the profound impact that legacy or planned giving can have in our community. There are so many people here in Chatham-Kent who are passionate about local healthcare. Through the simple process of designating a gift in your will in support of CKHAF, you can leave a legacy in our community that will reverberate for generations. It is such a wonderful and powerful way to make a mark.

As a Foundation, we rely upon the unwavering generosity of community members like you to invest in equipment, innovation, and facility upgrades at our local hospital. I hope you know how much of a positive impact your support has had on local healthcare. Without you, we wouldn’t be where we are today. Thank you!

Inspired-PNGWe recently published the Spring 2023 edition of Inspired. The Voice of CKHAF, which focuses primarily on the key themes that define Leave a Legacy Month. I want to stress that to leave a legacy, great wealth and influence are not required. All you need is a passion to make a difference and to help others, now and in the future.

This issue of Inspired celebrates the journey that we find ourselves on together, and I hope that you will consider reading it now to learn more about planned giving and the profound impact that it can have on local healthcare here in Chatham-Kent.

Once again, thank you for being my inspiration and for making a difference for healthcare in our community.
