Under the terms of the Trust Deed of BHC Foundation, the Bordertown Memorial Hospital Inc. is a named Beneficiary of the Foundation. The Hospital also administers a number of health and aged care facilities including Charla Lodge, Community Health etc.
When the concept of the Foundation was being considered, the upgrading or replacement of Charla Lodge was very much an issue confronting the community. A way needed to be found to accumulate funds which would remain under the control of the community as it is recognised that donating money to the hospital does not allow the community to retain ownership or control of those funds.
By creating the BHC Foundation, tax deductible donations can be received, and community groups can contribute towards local health initiatives.
"To provide a simple effective and long lasting way for individuals and families to leave legacies to our local hospital, aged care services and community health services"
