About Us

Registered Charity Number 119126217RR0001

Established in 1984, the Royal Alexandra Hospital Foundation provides a way for thousands of individuals and organizations to support the Royal Alexandra Hospital and its number one priority: building better healthcare.

Through our capital campaigns, the annual Full House lottery, and a variety of fundraising initiatives, the Royal Alexandra Hospital Foundation is committed to supporting improved healthcare outcomes for the hundreds of thousands of people who seek treatment at the Royal Alexandra Hospital every year.

The Foundation funds advanced education, cutting-edge research, next-generation technologies and facility improvements that advance care and enhance the patient experience. The Royal Alexandra Hospital Foundation also supports medical centres of excellence located at the Royal Alexandra Hospital campus, including the Lois Hole Hospital for Women, the CK Hui Heart Centre, the Orthopedic Surgery Centre and the Eye Institute of Alberta.

The Royal Alexandra Hospital Foundation respectfully acknowledges that we are on the traditional lands referred to as Treaty 6 Territory, and that the City of Edmonton and all the people here are beneficiaries of this peace and friendship treaty. Treaty 6 encompasses the traditional territories of numerous western Canada First Nations such as the Cree, Saulteaux, Blackfoot, Metis, Dene and Nakota Sioux. We acknowledge all the many First Nations, Metis and Inuit people who have called this area home since time immemorial.

Our Values

We believe in the value of Excellence.
Therefore, we will never use the words good enough, and we’re not afraid to start over if it means a superior outcome.

We believe in the value of Innovation.
While we appreciate the value of tried and true methods, we’re also comfortable turning current thinking upside down.

We believe in the value of Integrity.
Therefore doing the right thing in the right way is the norm, not the exception. This means the little things, when no one is watching, and the big things, when no one can look away.

We believe in the value of Respect.
Therefore, we give it freely and equally to all people whom our organization touches.

We believe in the value of Strong Relationships.
As such, we are always transparent about our goals and objectives when working with others.

We believe in the value of Stewardship.
Therefore we say thank you often, and in many ways. We know that donors could choose to support any charity – but they’ve chosen this hospital, and they should feel good about doing so.
