Lotte and John Hecht Memorial Foundation

The Lotte and John Hecht Memorial Foundation today has two major objectives: investigation and support of complementary and alternative medicine, particularly in the treatment of cancer, and economic education that promotes the principles of a free market.

The Foundation also supplies support to organizations that help people who fall through the social safety net of government programs for the needy. Most of these groups operate around the area of Main and Hastings in Vancouver and care for that very needy population. Some support is also given to existing charitable organizations that come to the Board's attention.
