Who We Are
The BC Cancer Foundation is the fundraising
partner of BC Cancer.
A world free from cancer is closer than ever before.
Together we will make it a reality.
What does the BC Cancer Foundation Do?
The BC Cancer Foundation raises funds for BC Cancer to support world-leading scientists and clinicians across the province — as they advance global innovation and accelerate access for all British Columbians to cutting edge cancer care, close to home.
Going Beyond Belief
We are raising $500 million in the most ambitious and comprehensive health campaign ever in B.C. It’s called Beyond Belief because that’s where we’re going to go: beyond what anyone believed possible.
With more possible right now than in the history of cancer care, we are uniquely positioned to make an unprecedented impact.
As the largest philanthropic funder of cancer research and care in the province, our donors fuel hope for the 80,000 patients per year who depend on BC Cancer.
Every dollar we raise stays in B.C., advancing breakthroughs and innovation across BC Cancer’s research programs and six world-class centers.
Home to some of the world’s top ranked scientific minds, BC Cancer is a place where remarkable advancements happen. We…
- Developed an advanced form of radiation therapy now used world-wide
- Discovered and deployed the first effective prevention strategy for ovarian cancer
- The first cancer centre to effectively treat a patient based on DNA of their cancer
- Proved cancer evolves over time and in response to treatment
- Launched Canada’s first population based lung cancer screening program
We are actively working with our donors and communities across B.C. to inspire investment in BC Cancer and our provincial teams of world-leading researchers, oncologists and care providers.
We were founded in 1935 and since then, with the support of our donors, we have made the impossible, possible.
And we’re going to do it again, for all British Columbians.
Together, we will go beyond belief.
