Our Vision: A world free from cancer

The BC Cancer Foundation is the fundraising partner of the BC Cancer Agency and the largest funder of cancer research in this province. We enable donors to make contributions to leading-edge research that has a direct impact on improvements to cancer care for patients in British Columbia.

By connecting philanthropy and research, we support the revolutionary advances that will help us achieve our vision of a world free from cancer.

Our Cause: Supporting world-renowned cancer research and enhancements to care in BC

Because the BC Cancer Agency integrates research and treatment, the process from discovery to treatment is shorter, and researchers are asking questions focused on the needs of patients in BC.

The BC Cancer Agency excels at translating exciting discoveries from the researcher’s bench to the patient’s bedside. This is the quickest and most effective way to impact cancer care, and it makes the Agency an international leader in cancer research.

Our Donors: Leading the way in helping us advance our cause

Our unique relationship with the BC Cancer Agency allows our donors to be part of research discoveries made right here in BC. We invite donors to become more connected to the BC Cancer Agency’s world-leading research that is shaping the future of patient care. 

At the BC Cancer Foundation we are funding the areas of greatest priority and promise.  We know, because we ask the scientists and clinicians at the BC Cancer Agency to identify the priorities and needs that will have the most significant and timely impact on cancer care and treatment. We then partner with our donors to raise the necessary funds in support of this life-saving work. 

Together we are funding and finding solutions that are having a direct impact on improving care for cancer patients in British Columbia.
