Our Impact

As the fundraising arm of Lions Gate Hospital, our role is to bridge the gap between what the government can provide and what our community needs.

Our goal is to enhance patient care. We do this by funding much-needed medical equipment, facility upgrades, staff education and research through donations from people like you.

In the last 10 years we have raised more than $100 million for Lions Gate Hospital.

Together we’re making a difference for our community.

In addition to the hospital, we also support all the publicly funded health care facilities on the North Shore, including: North Shore Hospice, Cedarview Lodge, Evergreen House, Kiwanis Care Centre, Margaret Fulton Adult Day Centre and West Vancouver Adult Day Centre.

  • North Shore Hospice Expansion ($2M)
  • New Fluoroscopy Machine ($1.125M)
