Helping Kids Shine
At BC Children’s Hospital Foundation, our vision is for a future where every child is healthy and can fulfill their hopes and dreams. Since 1982, we’ve partnered with supporters to raise funds for BC Children’s Hospital and its research institute, mental health facility and rehabilitation centre. Our goal is to ensure that every child in British Columbia receives the best healthcare imaginable.
Conquering childhood diseases
BC Children’s is so much more than a hospital. It’s also a world-class research institute affiliated with over 1,000 of the brightest minds in science who work tirelessly to discover new treatments and cures for childhood diseases like cancer, diabetes and heart defects and give hope to kids with rare diseases.
Treating kids as kids
Kids aren’t just small adults—and we’re big believers their healthcare should reflect that. It’s our priority to provide care that’s tailored to their unique needs. We’re focused on funding innovative equipment, practices and spaces built specifically for kids to ensure they achieve the best outcomes possible.
Preventing illness and injury
BC Children’s doesn’t just treat kids when they’re sick. We also work to prevent kids from getting hurt or sick in the first place. With early intervention, many chronic diseases can be prevented before they occur.
Help us launch a new era in children’s healthcare.
When we work together, we can speed up progress. We need your help.
