Where your money goes
Despite the negative impact of market correction on investment income during February and March 2020 due to concerns around the COVID-19 pandemic, BC Children’s Hospital Foundation made significant contributions to BC Children’s, including its Research Institute, child and adolescent mental health programs and Sunny Hill Health Centre for Children.
The continued generosity of our donors and success of our fundraising initiatives, enabled $55 million to be contributed to help advance research, equipment, training, clinical care enhancements and programs that are playing a profound role in helping experts to tackle childhood illnesses. Funds also supported the Sunny Hill Enhancement Initiative, which will help create and enhance a purpose-built rehabilitation and developmental services facility on the BC Children’s Hospital campus.
Funds that were disbursed after expenses were allocated as follows:
BC Children's is the only hospital in the province devoted exclusively to children
kids visited the hospital for specialized pediatric services last year
researchers on our campus work tirelessly to discover new treatments
