Chatham-Kent Health Alliance Foundation (CKHAF) was formed in 2019 as the result of the amalgamation of The Public General Hospital Foundation of Chatham, Sydenham District Hospital Foundation and Foundation of Chatham-Kent Health Alliance.

CKHAF links the community of Chatham-Kent with its local hospital by raising money through philanthropic initiatives. These funds are invested in equipment renewal, program innovation, and modern facilities in the pursuit of excellence in patient-centred care at the Chatham and Wallaceburg sites of Chatham-Kent Health Alliance.

Since 1998, more than $59 million has been raised for local healthcare in Chatham-Kent through Chatham-Kent Health Alliance Foundation and its predecessor organizations.
