“The incredible contributions of our donors are truly the foundation of a partnership with our community – and a vision of what we can achieve when we come together. We know that our donors give to support our exceptional teams of caregivers, because they care too. We are proud to thank and recognize our giving community for inspiring us and our care teams, year after year.”
– Tom Siemens, Board Secretary, Victoria Hospitals Foundation
Our donor philosophy
Every one of our donors has a story. And we know that every donation is a choice – a decision to support our hospitals and change the lives of our patients. It is this knowledge that is the root of our deep gratitude to each and every one you, and this gratitude guides everything that we do.
We are inspired by our donors’ generosity. Your decision to give back, and your support of the hundreds of thousands of Vancouver Island residents that our hospitals serve, makes us all better. Our donors are the very heart of our organization; you are transforming healthcare for our community. You are our changemakers. You are our champions. In your decision to give to the Victoria Hospitals Foundation, you are leading the way in transforming healthcare for our community.
We are humbled by the giving heart of our organization. And this giving heart is beating strong. We are deeply thankful that 50% of our current donors have been giving for 10 years or more. It is this commitment to care that we are proud to uphold, and that guides every relationship we are fortunate enough to build with our donors. You teach us what it means to champion a culture of philanthropy, and we want to be your champion in turn.
