Across the landscape of public health, where the pursuit of well-being and the prevention of diseases intersect, we are so very grateful to those whose contributions often go unnoticed — our donors. These incredible individuals, organizations, and companies generously give to public health initiatives, providing the crucial support needed to create lasting impacts in our communities. Today, we wanted to take the time to express our heartfelt expression of gratitude to those of you who have helped to fuel crucial advancements in public health.

We also know that behind every successful public health initiative lies a dedicated team of professionals, researchers, and healthcare workers. We are grateful to this community, many of whom also support us as donors, as we work passionately together to build an effective public health system. We know that strong partnerships create more reach and greater change.

All of these contributions, whether big or small, enable the realization of innovative projects, the establishment of life-changing programs, and the creation of critical resources. This is particularly important as we focus our attention on projects that are equity-driven, promote social justice, and advance evidence-based work that is grounded in lived experience and community-driven priorities.

This matters because from caring individuals to corporate community leaders with a strong sense of social responsibility, the spectrum of donors is as vast and varied as the projects that we support. We want to acknowledge that donors come from these diverse backgrounds, each driven by their unique perspective or personal connection to our shared vision. It is this diversity that adds strength to our collective efforts, ensuring that public health initiatives are fortified from many angles.

Our Foundation takes pride in supporting the ground-breaking work that is so generously supported by our donors, from responding to urgent health emergencies to championing compassionate interventions for equity-deserving populations whose lives, health and well-being are impacted by systemic barriers and determinants of health, including poverty, colonialism, and criminalization.

We want to emphasize the impact you have when you support this important work — your contributions are changing the lives that are behind the statistics. You are catalysts for change, driving work in areas where the need is greatest. From funding health initiatives that reach into rural, remote and underserved communities, to supporting research on emerging diseases, every dollar donated has the power to transform lives, protect communities, and pave the way for a healthier future grounded in values that protect and promote healthcare for everyone.

Thank you to all of you who have dedicated your resources to support public health initiatives, we extend our deepest gratitude. Your compassion and commitment to the well-being of people across BC is the driving force behind the many positive changes we are seeing across the spectrum of public health. We hope you are proud of your investment in the health and happiness of people today, and for the generations to come.
