Dave Lede Family Foundation and Ledcor
The Dave Lede Family Foundation and Ledcor jointly pledged $5 million to support the construction of the emergency department in the new hospital. Often the first line of care for children, the emergency department plays a vital role in diagnosing and treating children who come to the hospital.
Mr. Lede firmly believes that companies and individuals have a responsibility to give back to the community and promote a strong spirit of giving. Guided by a belief that healthy children make strong communities, the Dave Lede Family Foundation has a long history of supporting pediatric initiatives across North America.
As Chairman and CEO of Ledcor, Mr. Lede has fostered a similar culture of giving within Ledcor, leading a corporate philosophy of giving back to the communities in which it operates. Through 20 years of giving to BC Children’s Hospital, Ledcor’s generosity has touched the lives of its own employees and families, as well as countless other families across the province.
