The Medavie Health Foundation is focused on developing partnerships that promote long term lasting impacts to support mental health in children and youth, the treatment of post-traumatic stress disorder, and the prevention and self management of type 2 diabetes.
We work to establish proactive longer-term relationships with like-minded organizations that are well known and well respected in the communities where we do business. These well-managed organizations, either as direct recipients of MHF funding or as joint contributors to a recipient program, will share a commitment to our core causes.
Partnerships generally last between three and five years and have a clear plan to detail how the program will continue to be sustainable beyond this timeframe. Our funding will focus on programs with specific measurable outcomes to make a significant impact for those affected and their families.
When considering which organizations to partner with, we consider the following:
- Vision, Mission and Values
- Governance – accountability, board membership and fiscal management
- Alignment with core causes – child and youth mental health, post-traumatic stress disorder or type 2 diabetes
- Geographic region
- Community relationships
- Reputation in the community
