In Memory

A Gift in Memory is a special way for family and friends to express their sympathy while helping the East Kootenay Foundation for Health advance healthcare in the community and beyond.

Many people choose to make these gifts in lieu of flowers. The East Kootenay Foundation for Health will acknowledge all donations given in memory by sending a card to the next of kin with an expression of sympathy.

When a donation in memory of a loved one reaches $500, they will be recognized on the Foundation’s digital remembrance wall in the East Kootenay Regional hospital.
