The BMP Foundation exists to provide the Brome-Missisquoi-Perkins Hospital with the latest in equipment, technology and training. Its primary objective is to encourage and enable dynamic community participation and support for the Hospital throughout the Brome-Missisquoi population.
The BMP Foundation was established in 1993 following a major capital campaign conducted in 1989-90.
Apart from its capital campaigns, the Foundation raises money as follows:
- It receives donations from the general public, including gifts in memory of deceased persons
- It organizes fundraising activities of its own, including an annual car raffle and a Christmas mailing.
- It works in partnership with community-based organizations that stage a variety of support activities including: the BMP Brunch & Dinner, the Owl Hoot Sugar Party, the Optimist Club Telephone Blitz, the Bromont Spring Concert, the Cowansville Auto Expo, the Classique BMP Golf Tournament, the BMP Bike-A-Thon, the Soirée Champêtre, the Yamaska Valley Walk for Women’s Cancer and the Star BMP talent show.
Through such activities the Foundation currently provides the Hospital with close to $1,000,000 in new equipment each year.
