Dr. Kevin Glasgow

Chief Executive Officer, Crohn's & Colitis Foundation Canada
"CCFC has received excellent value from its membership in the Health Charities Coalition of Canada. The Coalition's leaders and members have created a networking and learning environment where best practices are shared openly for the benefit of the entire health charity sector. The ongoing learning opportunities for health charity leaders also ensure we are continuing to improve our practices and performance, and as a result, better meet the needs of our constituents.

Health charities have unique challenges and value prospects that set them apart in the general "charitable sector" and the link through HCCC assists us in managing effectively."

Bobbe Wood

President, Heart & Stroke Foundation of Canada
"The Health Charities Coalition of Canada gives a strong, collective voice to organizations focused on improving the health of Canadians. It provides members with valuable, credible and reliable representation before the federal government on sector-wide issues. By bringing together the strength of many health charities to an issue, HCCC advances our collective missions in a way that would be challenging for individual charities to do on their own."
