By starting a monthly gift this February, you’ll make twice the impact
Help conquer childhood heart disease
We need your support to push the limits of what’s possible in children’s cardiac care.
Together with generous donors like you, we are determined to help solve the biggest challenges that exist in child health—like heart disease. Today, one in every 100 babies in our province is born with a congenital heart defect. Many of their early years will be spent enduring complex procedures and making countless trips to BC Children’s Hospital—however, thanks to advances in care over the years, the vast majority of these children will survive.
But survival alone isn’t enough. Many children face severe health complications and uncertainty for the rest of their lives—while their families live with unimaginable worry and anxiety. You can help change this current reality.
Give today and your gift will be matched
Our vision is ambitious in scope—but with your support, we are determined to ensure that heart disease doesn’t stop children from living full, healthy lives. There’s no better time to do so. That’s because our generous friends at Canadian Pacific (CP) will match all online donations throughout the month of February, including the first year of all new monthly gifts.*
As a monthly donor, you will play a critical role in ensuring the hospital has the ongoing support that’s required to break barriers in conquering childhood illnesses. You will also be recognized as a member of the Sunshine Club—a dedicated community of supporters who give each month to create lasting change in child health. As a member, you’ll receive a welcome package and a subscription to our magazine, Shine, to learn about the progress your support makes possible.
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 ensure kids have access to life-saving cardiology equipment, advance groundbreaking research aimed at improving treatments, and train the next generation of experts in pediatric cardiology.
“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
*Canadian Pacific (CP) will match all online general one-time and monthly donations from February 1-28, 2021, up to a cumulative total of $170,000. For monthly donations, the match will be applied to the total of the monthly gift over 12 months.
