Birthday Donations

Help create a brighter future for BC kids by making a donation as part of your next birthday celebration.

How You Can Help:

1. Ask for Support
Ask your family and friends to donate to BC Children's Hospital in addition to, or in lieu of a birthday gift.

2. Collect donations:

  • Create a fundraising page where guests can donate online, or;
  • Collect donations of cash/cheques at your event (cheques should be made payable to BCCHF).

3. Come celebrate with us!
We want to thank you in person. Book a time to meet with us and have your photo taken with one of our big cheques to celebrate your contribution.

Kids 12 and under also earn their membership in the Sunny Bear Birthday Club (see details below).

If you have other questions, or need help getting started, we’re here to help! Email birthdays@bcchf.ca or call 604-875-2444 or toll-free 1-888-663-3033.

The Sunny Bear Birthday Club is a special recognition program for kids 12 and under to help make their donation experience a memorable one.

Sunny Bear Birthday Club members receive:

  • A personalized thank you certificate;
  • A thank you card from Sunny Bear, noting their contribution total;
  • An official Sunny Bear Birthday Club membership card.

Yes! Please let us know the number of guests you are expecting and the address we can send the forms to. Tight on time? We have a version we can email instead. Forms can be requested by emailing birthdays@bcchf.ca or by calling 604-875-2444. 

Unfortunately we do not have a secure location where you can drop off donations during the weekend. Please call 604-875-2444 to book a time to meet with us during regular office hours: Monday to Friday, 8:30am to 5:00 pm.

We strongly recommend you call ahead to book a time (604-875-2444). This will ensure that we have someone available to meet you and will give us an opportunity to prepare for your visit.
