Investing in the health of Island kids

Children’s Health Foundation of Vancouver Island has invested in the health of Island kids for more than 97 years. Our vision is to ensure all Island families have access to the health care they need. Thanks to the generosity of donors like you, we are able to bring supports closer to home and help transform the lives of children and youth living with health challenges.

We know kids may only be 21% of our Island’s population, but they are 100% of our future. Help us invest in this future and join us as champions for the health of every Island family.
