The Board meets regularly 4 times a year.  The annual meeting is held in November, at which time the executive is elected and committees established. 

Our assets consist of money which is invested equally with RBC Dominion Services and Raymond James.  Physical assets include Manus Manor triplex and Viking Medical Centre.  The bulk of our funding comes from bequests, memorial donations, service clubs, rental revenue and industry. 

After 23 years of providing Mammography service in Viking, the Foundation discontinued the service in September, 2012.
