Congratulations Dennis Krauss, our First Monthly Donor Winner!

While recovering from a recent Hip Replacement, Dennis Krauss read the Campbell River Hospital Foundations’ Report to Our Community and learned about our Every Dollar Makes a Difference monthly donor contest, a partnership with Black Rock Resort in Ucluelet and The Travel Place in Campbell River. The contest was open to all existing monthly donors and new donors who signed up between December 19, 2014 and January 31, 2014.  The prize was a two night get-a-way for two in a one bedroom suite at Black Rock Resort.  Not only do you win through giving back but you could win a mini-vacation too. Dennis entered the draw by becoming a new monthly donor and to his surprise and delight he was the winner.  Originally from Victoria, Dennis moved to Campbell River ten years ago because Campbell River had ‘everything’. “I have always believed in supporting charities,” says Dennis Krauss. “Following my hip replacement, I was grateful for the wonderful care that I received at Campbell River Hospital and decided to give back through monthly giving; it is easier to give more throughout the year than at one time.” If you are new to the work of the Foundation, perhaps we can inspire you to join us in supporting health care for Campbell River and North Vancouver Island.  Whether you are in your golden years, planning for retirement or raising your family, we ask you to imagine one single day in this beautiful place that we live without your good health.  Your donation supports our hospital and Yucalta Lodge through equipment purchase, staff education and capital projects and leaves a legacy of health care excellence for future generations. “Monthly donations are a convenient way to spread your donation over the entire year and provide the Campbell River Hospital Foundation with a sustainable funding source,” states Stacey Marsh, Executive Director, CRHF.  “It allows you to budget your generosity – and you receive a single, cumulative tax receipt at year end.  It could be a $10.00 perpetual monthly donation. It’s that easy and you may update or cancel at any time.” For information on how you can become a monthly donor contact the Foundation office by phone 250-850-2418, in person, we are located in the hospital basement near the Rehabilitation Department or on line at
