Lights of Hope is one of our most visible and important fundraising campaigns. Since 1998, your gifts to Lights of Hope have raised more than $50 million! Last year, donors gave more than $3.6 million, funded 114 urgently-needed hospital and long-term care programs, and supported 7,000 health care heroes across Providence Health Care.

Experience Lights of Hope
Why Give to Lights of Hope?
Your donations make it possible to save lives… to provide warm clothing to patients in need… to fund research initiatives that change the way we diagnose and treat disease… and to transform health care with the new St. Paul’s Hospital and BC’s first publicly-funded dementia care village.
Your gift truly touches every patient, resident, family, and caregiver
You bring compassion and innovation to St. Paul’s Hospital and to hospitals and care sites across Providence Health Care and Providence Living.
And you fund countless programs and services across BC, fostering wellness for all British Columbians. Thank you!
Stories of Hope
When you give to Lights of Hope, you help families at their most vulnerable. And you give caregivers the tools and equipment they need to make our patients, residents, and families more comfortable.
Tidings of colour and joy!
For folks living in long-term care, the holidays can be an especially tender time of year. One way to kindle the joy of the season is with beautiful flowers. Thanks to Meadowlands Horticultural, 350 vibrant poinsettias are bringing joy – and cheerful colour – to our residents.
This is the new stethoscope. This is the future.
This is the story of how a family doctor in Haida Gwaii, a cardiac specialist at St. Paul’s Hospital in Vancouver, and breakthrough imaging technology saved Kathryn Wiggins.
Irma and David Oliver had long wanted to visit Canada’s far north. But Irma’s failing health and frequent blood transfusions forced the couple to stay close to their home in Abbotsford.
Then a miracle happened. A miracle the size of your little finger. And a year later, Irma and David made the 8,000 km odyssey to the edge of the continent: their feet in the Arctic Ocean, their arms around each other, their dream in their hands. It would never have happened without St. Paul’s Hospital.
“When they wheeled him into the operating room, we didn’t know if we’d ever see him again.”
Jamie was a healthy, active college student. On a wilderness hike, he sprained his knee. Days later, he was on a ventilator in an induced coma on the precipice between life and death.
