At St. Paul’s Foundation, we recognize this is an exceptional time of change within our communities. We have put together a COVID-19 Response Fund to support PHC’s patients, residents, and health care teams with their most crucial needs. The needs are evolving but rest assured that we will continue to support our frontline health care workers in every way we can. Thank you for being part of our family of support.

Thanks to the generosity of the Conconi Family Foundation, Y.P. Heung Foundation and their partners, and donors like you, over $1.8 million was raised to support St. Paul’s Foundation and VGH & UBC Hospital Foundation’s COVID-19 Response Funds.

We thank you for your extraordinary generosity during this time of uncertainty. We also thank the Conconi Family Foundation and Y.P. Heung Foundation and their partners for stepping forward as philanthropic leaders in our community, and doubling the impact of your gift.

Every donation is making a difference and allowing us to provide the very best care possible at this time. You can still give today.
