The Whistler Health Care Foundation (WHCF) is launching its annual Grant Funding Program, and your help is needed to spread the word to any non-profit in the Sea to Sky region that has a health-care-related project in need of funding to ensure success.

This is the third year of the Grant Funding Program thanks to the generosity of the Goudge Family Foundation, which has been supportive since inception, and the Touchet Family Foundation, which has graciously joined this year allowing us to dramatically increase funds available. The support of these two family foundations is critical to the program’s success.

The Grant Funding Program is designed to expand the reach of the WHCF into the community and help support health-related initiatives that otherwise may struggle to find funding. All successful applicants will have a health-care-related project that may include the purchase of equipment, health-care education, or a special event/conference that will contribute to the improvement of our communities’ physical or mental health.

The deadline is Feb. 20. For more information about the program and an application, please go to our website at

Please help us get the word out and be part of making health-care more accessible in our communities.
