The AMGH Foundation works in partnership with the Alexandra Marine & General Hospital to ensure that quality health care is available to all residents of Huron County and neighbouring communities.
We’re very Proud of…
Our Standards Accreditation from Imagine Canada
In September 2014, the AMGH Foundation received Standards Accreditation from Imagine Canada. At that time, the Foundation was one of only 109 Canadian charities to hold the internationally-recognized designation.
The AMGH Foundation is proud to announce that following a thorough re-accreditation and peer-review process, we have received re-accreditation for another 5 years from 2019-2024.
How does your donation make a difference? We strive to be transparent with our finances so that you know exactly how your donations are used. Our finances are audited annually and the results are submitted to international charity monitoring organizations for review.
