DONATE to support research initiatives at Covenant Health!

Funding for health research comes from different places: many studies are funded by pharmaceutical or other private sponsors; some studies are supported through grants – both public and private; and still many projects are funded by the researchers themselves (i.e. Physicians, nurses, allied health and other healthcare professionals).

If you are interested in helping to support health research initiatives at Covenant Health, please donate through the Covenant Foundation and indicate in the drop down menu that you would like your donation to support “z-Covenant Health Research Centre (CHRC)”.
