Creating opportunities for every Island family

Since 1927, we’ve been funding services for children and youth across Vancouver Island and the Gulf Islands to support their health challenges, from physical disabilities to mental health issues and everything in between.

By raising money and managing funds, we can transform access to essential services and provide every Island family with the support they need. To learn more, read our reports.

How do we help?

Child and youth mental health

As the number one crisis facing Island kids today, mental health issues—everything from anxiety disorders to ADHD—need our voice and support now more than ever.

Early childhood development

Our focus from the very beginning, we fund programs that provide early intervention services to children with physical disabilities and health challenges.

Rural and remote access

For over 90 years, we’ve fought to bring healthcare services closer to home and reduce barriers to access for children, youth and families living in rural or remote communities.
