Eastern Kings Memorial Health Foundation


“Supporting healthier communities through giving!”

$3 Million Given to Local Communities over 20 Years

The Eastern Kings Memorial (EKM) Health Foundation recently celebrated the 20th Anniversary of its Grants Program.  The Trustees and Staff of the Foundation are proud to have served the 63 communities in the Eastern Kings catchment area since 1996.


The EKM Health Foundation is a charitable organization that funds health-related projects within Eastern Kings County.

The Foundation evolved from the closure in 1994 of the former Eastern Kings Memorial Hospital.  Donations previously made to the former hospital were transferred to the Foundation with the intent that the income from these monies supports health-related projects in the local communities.  The Foundation is directed by a volunteer Board consisting of 9 Trustees, along with an Administrative Assistant who manages the Office. 

The EKM Health Foundation is pleased to accept donations, bequests, and other gifts.  These gifts enable us to support healthier communities through giving.  The Foundation also receives requests for financial support from various health-related organizations, funding projects through a bi-yearly grants program.

How does the EKM Health Foundation promote a healthier community?

The Foundation disburses approximately $150,000 annually to support:

  • Women’s & Men’s Concerns
  • Seniors Issues
  • Infant Care
  • EKM Community Health Centre
  • Youth Nutrition & Activities
  • Community Service
  • Research
  • Valley Regional Hospital

East End Gateway Mater Plan Survey


East End Gateway Background

The East End Gateway will announce and articulate the arrival into Wolfville’s Downtown. The gateway will involve the design and construction of a number of elements that create a sense of arrival, provide community space, and support Wolfville as a tourist destination.

A preliminary design was developed through the Downtown Development Plan consultations, which will form the bases for future consultation with the community to develop a Master Plan. The Gateway space is framed by Victoria Avenue, Main Street and Willow Avenue and includes Willow Park and the NSPI lands.

Based on the Downtown Development concept plan and staff discussions, the following elements will be considered as part of the East End Gateway:
• Streetscape plantings;
• Trail and pedestrian linkage between south residential area, Willow Park and Waterfront Park;
• Parkland improvements on north side of Main Street to compliment Willow Park;
• Trail Head for the Harvest Moon Trail;
• New footprint of the Visitor Information Centre;
• Location of the Skateboard Park;
• Examine the possibilities of repurposing the Willow Park pond for a Splash Pad/Pad and winter skating surface;
• New tall decorative lighting to help announce arrival to the downtown.

Furthermore, the Gateway also includes upgrades to the Visitor Information Centre (VIC) and enhanced trail and pedestrian walkway connections through and from Willow Park to the future Destination Trail (Harvest Moon Trail).
