Healthy Women. Healthy Communities.
BC Women’s Hospital Foundation facilitates strategic investment in capital + equipment, research + innovation, education + awareness, and advocacy with their women’s health partners.
Women do not have equal access to quality healthcare which has innumerable negative impacts on the health of our families and communities.
The Foundation will insist that women and newborns have access to the highest quality healthcare when, where, and how they need it.
We deliver impact by facilitating strategic philanthropic investment in
Capital + Equipment - Funding the needs of physicians, researchers and patients to ensure access to the cutting edge technology, facilities and resources they require.
Research - Supporting the identified need for women’s health research that ensures early adoption of the best technologies that improve health.
Education + Awareness - Amplifying the voices of those who need to be heard by providing access to the tools and resources that promote women’s wellness.
Advocacy - Shining a light on the gender inequity, disrespect and discrimination that women experience in accessing healthcare.
Join us in changing the tide on women’s health.
