BC Children’s Hospital Foundation and HSBC Bank Canada share a longstanding partnership. Since 1988, HSBC and its employees have taken part in annual fundraising campaigns for BC Children’s Hospital.
As part of HSBC’s 150th anniversary community fund, the connection with BC Children’s has grown stronger. In the fall of 2014, HSBC employees were invited to help decide which charitable themes HSBC would support in their region through the community fund. Based on employee feedback, HSBC Bank Canada will use its portion of the fund towards charities supporting medical research and those living with illness – including BC Children’s Hospital Foundation.
HSBC’s 150th community fund contribution to BC Children’s will support and improve the care of patients. It will fund childhood disease research, provide advanced medical equipment, and support child development and rehabilitation services and programs at BC Children’s Hospital, its research institute and Sunny Hill Health Centre for Children. This commitment to improving child health in BC will make a difference for children like Gabrielle from Kelowna, who, diagnosed with a brain tumour, received life-saving and rehabilitative care at both BC Children’s and Sunny Hill.

Thank you, HSBC, for being a partner of BC Children’s Hospital.
