Cause Related Marketing
Thank you for your interest in developing a cause marketing program in partnership with BC Children's Hospital. Initiatives that fall within Cause Marketing relate to businesses or individuals who sell a product or service, wish to donate a portion of proceeds to BC Children's Hospital and wish to use BC Children's Hospital or BC Children's Hospital Foundation's logo(s) in the promotion of this initiative.
Each year, we are fortunate to receive a number of inquiries from generous companies and individuals like you across BC, whose cause marketing goals are ideally in harmony with those of the Foundation.
How to Apply
To be considered, please complete the following proposal form. Proposals will be carefully reviewed and evaluated for feasibility and suitability by BC Children's Hospital Foundation.
