Healthy communities don’t just happen, they are built by caring people who want to make a difference. Join us in creating the healthiest community possible in White Rock and South Surrey. Peace Arch Hospital Foundation is committed to creating the healthiest community possible and offers granting programs to members of the White Rock and South Surrey area, and employees of Peace Arch Hospital and Fraser Health. 


Open to the community of White Rock and South Surrey

The Healthy Community Grants program (formerly known as “Because People Matter Grants”) founded in 1999, was created to support Peace Arch Hospital Foundation's (PAHF) mission to raise awareness and enhance the health and wellness of our community. Since inception, more than 175 grants have been awarded, granting $2.8 million dollars. Applications are accepted twice a year and are reviewed and assessed by a committee comprised of representatives from Peach Arch Hospital Foundation, its Board of Directors and community members representing the City of White Rock and City of Surrey. This granting program assists the Foundation in creating the healthiest community possible by offering financial support to viable projects, programs, and initiatives that enhance the health and wellness for those living in the White Rock/South Surrey area.
