Donor Bill of Rights

    PHILANTHROPY is based on voluntary action for the common good.  It is a tradition of giving and sharing that is primary to the quality of life.  To assure that philanthropy merits the respect and trust of the general public, and that donors and prospective donors can have full confidence in the not-for-profit organizations and causes they are asked to support, we declare that all donors have these rights.

I.  To be informed of the organization’s mission, of the way the organization intends to use donated resources, and of its capacity to use donations effectively for their intended purposes.

II. To be informed of the identity of those serving on the organization’s governing board, and to expect the board to exercise prudent judgement in its stewardship responsibilities.

III. To have access to the organization’s most recent financial statements.

IV. To be assured their gifts will be used for the purposes for which they were given.

V.  To receive appropriate acknowledgement and recognition.

VI. To be assured that information about their donations is handled with respect and with confidentiality to the extent provided by law.

VII. To expect that all relationships with individuals representing organizations of interest to the donor will be professional in nature.

VIII. To be informed whether those seeking donations are volunteers, employees of the organization or hired solicitors.

IX. To have the opportunity for their names to be deleted from mailing lists that an organization may intend to share.

X. To feel free to ask questions when making a donation and to receive prompt, truthful and forthright answers.

CKNX Healthcare Heroes Radiothon

The 18th Annual CKNX Health Care Heroes Radiothon was held Saturday October 19, 2019, airing live on CKNX am 920.  Last year's project, 4 new hospital beds for the Chesley Hospital, have been making patients more comfortable, safer and healthier for awhile now.  This year's project is a Hematology POCT Analyzer, $30,567.  The support received through the Radiothon and BBQ at the Chesley Grocery Store means the medical staff gets blood test results in a minute instead of twenty minutes after being taxied to Walkerton.

Any additional donations for future projects always are welcome.  The Chesley Foundation and Hospital thank CKNX and all who donated.  The patients, staff, volunteers and Foundation are extremely grateful for the strong community support.

COVID-19:  During this health crisis, the Foundation is working off-site; however, donations can be made to P.O. Box 40, Chesley, via canadahelps.org or at hospital registration. In response to the increased COVID-19 cases in Bruce-Grey, the next Board meeting will be a zoom meeting, Wednesday, January 13, 2021.


The on-going support for the Chesley Hospital is greatly appreciated. With their donation one supporter said, "Thanks for always treating my dad so well. I hope this helps" The Foundation wishes to extend this Thank You to all medical and support staff - take care of yourselves!


Thanks to the generosity of the Chesley community, we continue to fund a Physician Recruiter, Chenelle Monk, who is doing a great job. Even with COVID-19 physician recruitment and retention has been strengthened with a digital marketing footprint and by keeping in touch with current contacts. We also have secured ongoing locum coverage for physicians to easily check out our community. This year we have four new locum doctors in our clinic and several physicians added to our ER locum group. This winter's projects include a promotional video, 2021 rural medicine retreat, and, along with the Foundation, a green space at the hospital. This amazing community makes it enjoyable to share Chesley in the search for great candidates! For any questions, information or general inquiries Chenelle: 519-377-2441 or chenelle@physicianrecruitmentchesley.com
