History of Covenant Foundation
In 1994, three Edmonton hospitals (Edmonton General, Grey Nuns and Misericordia) merged into one health group known as the Caritas Health Group. At the same time, two separate Foundations serving the three hospitals also began operating as one – The Caritas Foundation.
Caritas Foundation inspired and enabled community support for compassionate, holistic and innovative health care at the three hospitals for more than two decades. Then, on April 1, 2016, Covenant Foundation was formed to better meet the increased need for funds to deliver on health priorities for Albertans. By increasing fundraising capacity and community health awareness and education, the Foundation is well positioned to leverage resources, improve priority alignment, reduce duplication and enhance accountability to our donors and stakeholders.
Today, Covenant Foundation raises funds to help support 20 Covenant facilities across the province by providing the highest quality care to patients and residents.
