Canuck Place relies on the generous support of individual donors, corporate and community partners including the Province of British Columbia, to offer our programs and services at no cost to children and families across the province.
In 2017-18, our largest source of funds was provided by donations in the form of individual, corporate and community gifts, planned gifts, and annual giving activities, in addition to our annual galas. We continue to be grateful for our partnership with the Vancouver Canucks and the Canucks for Kids Fund, who have contributed over $28 million to Canuck Place over the last two decades. We are also grateful to the Province of BC for their continued funding.
