Join the Canuck Place Conconi Challenge

June 25, 2015

UPDATE: On July 24th, with the generous support of our donors, we met our match goal. Thank you for your support. Canuck Place still needs your help year-round. Consider a donation today.

Canuck Place Children’s Hospice is proud to partner with the Robert L. Conconi Foundation this summer.

The privately funded family foundation has pledged to match $200,000 of donations received to Canuck Place until July 31.

“The opportunity presented to us here at Canuck Place is just a pleasure for our entire family to be involved in,” said Robert Conconi, Founder of the Robert L. Conconi Foundation. “We looked at Canuck Place as a very good, deserving organization that needs help and has a clear mission – they want to double the number of children and families they are serving and we want to be part of that transformation with them.”

This Conconi Challenge is the foundation’s way of engaging communities in philanthropy through matching campaigns.

The Canuck Place match serves as the kickoff to 20th Anniversary celebrations at Canuck Place. Since first opening in 1995, Canuck Place has expanded to include a second provincial location in Abbotsford, as well as adding expanded counselling services, 24-hour phone consultation support, and community programs. We now serve over 600 newborns, children, and teens with life-threatening illness, and the families who love and support them.

“There are more children out there in need of these services than ever,” said Diane Conconi, “We need to get out there and support them and keep this place going for the next 20 years.”

By making a donation now, you can double your impact, and help us provide 24-hour care and make a lasting difference in the lives of children and the families who love them.
