About Medavie Health Foundation
Medavie Health Foundation is funded by Medavie Blue Cross and Medavie Health Services as part of a long-term commitment to make a lasting impact in the communities where our employees and customers live and work. Today, with a growing capital base of $50 million, the Foundation will provide a legacy to benefit future generations.
Medavie Health Foundation is focused on developing partnerships and supporting programs in three core cause areas:
- Child and youth mental health – with a focus on Mental Resiliency
- Post-traumatic stress disorder – with a focus on Intervention and Recovery
- Type 2 diabetes – with a focus on Prevention and Self-Management
These three areas are of particular concern to Canadians and offer significant potential to affect change for future generations. We aim to bring organizations and communities together through collaborative multi-year partnerships and to support grassroots, community-based initiatives through an annual grants program.
To create a legacy that will benefit future generations.
Medavie Health Foundation is dedicated to contributing to the well-being of Canadians by partnering with community-based organizations and supporting programs that will act as catalysts for healthy change.
