Help kids get the best cardiac care
Heart disease isn’t just an adult problem. In fact, one in every 100 babies are born with a heart defect. While remarkable strides have been made to improve treatment and care in recent decades, we have more to do. Many kids still experience severe health complications—and uncertainty—for the rest of their lives.
We need your support to help kids get the best cardiac care possible.
Give today and your gift will be matched
We're calling on people from across the province to come together to ensure BC's kids receive the highest level of cardiac care. By making a donation this February, you'll also double your impact. That's because our generous friends at Canadian Pacific (CP) will match all online donations throughout the month, including the first year of all new monthly gifts*.
By making a monthly gift, you'll provide a steady stream of funds that we can count on—which gives us the ability to dream even bigger dreams. Donors who give monthly are recognized as members of the Sunshine Club. As a member, you'll receive a welcome pacakge and a subscription to our magazine, Shine. Each month, we'll withdraw your donation directly from your bank account or credit card. Then next February, we'll send you a tax receipt for the total of your annual donations. You can change or cancel your support at any time—just contact us.
Your generosity will help support the Children's Heart Centre at BC Children's Hospital. Funds will be used to purchase a new fleet of the latest generation cardiac ultrasound machines, advance the cardiac research program and help to train the next generation of medical superstars.
"Your donations will not only support the daily work of the clinical care team, it will enable us to substantially expand our research capacity. This infusion of high-quality personnel into our scientific programs will create additional opportunities to pursue new solutions for children’s heart health. We are very grateful to have a partner like CP by our side as we work to solve tomorrow’s problems today.” —Dr. Shubhayan Sanatani, head of cardiology at BC Children’s Hospital
*CP will match all online general one-time and monthly donations from February 1-29, 2020, up to a cumulative total of $50,000. For monthly donations, the match will be applied to the total of the monthly gift over 12 months.
