Beyond Belief Campaign FAQs
We’re launching the most ambitious and comprehensive health campaign in B.C. history. Our goal is to raise $500 million to elevate cancer care for all British Columbians.
This is the most exciting time in the history of cancer research and care. Science has been accelerating — driven by global collaboration, access to high-quality data, technological advancements, and a much deeper understanding of cancer biology. Cancer is the world’s biggest healthcare crisis, and with demand for cancer treatments expected to increase by 60% in the next ten years, the time to act is now — for every single British Columbian.
The campaign will run until early 2026 so all gifts donated right now will be added to our campaign totals.
We are looking to raise $500M to elevate cancer care for all British Columbians by focusing on three important priority areas — expand our world-leading teams of researchers and clinicians, investing in world-first innovations and cutting-edge research, and accelerating access to these innovations for all British Columbians. People, innovation and access — these are the pillars of our fundraising efforts.
We will be focusing on three important priorities in this campaign – activating the world’s best by attracting and retaining talented; advancing innovation by investing in the latest in technology and research; accelerating access to leading cancer care for all British Columbians close to home. In these key areas, we focus on a number of different cancer priorities. Do you have a particular cancer area you are looking to support?
This campaign is province-wide. Cancer has no boundaries so neither do we. One of our key focus for this campaign is to expand cancer care access to all British Columbians, even in remote areas, while making sure it is equitable and fair.
