The Largest Gift in KGH Foundation History
$5 Million to Establish the Centre for Health Systems Learning & Innovation
The Jim Pattison Foundation Gift.
In an unprecedented step towards advancing health care solutions for the Southern Interior, the Jim Pattison Foundation has committed a transformational $5 million to establish the Centre for Health Systems Learning & Innovation, through the Closer to home than you think campaign. This Centre, in partnership with Interior Health and the KGH Foundation, promises to revolutionize the landscape of health care innovation in BC’s interior.
Innovation in Action
This Centre is the first of its kind with a unique focus on rural, remote, Indigenous, and community health care. It aims to be a virtual network connecting innovators, clinical teams, researchers, patients and families, and community partners. Together, we will create research-based solutions that tackle the diverse and complex health care challenges facing our communities.
Your support can accelerate this ambitious endeavor. Join us as we create a brighter, healthier future for the residents of BC’s interior.
To encourage and empower more community members to take part in this transformative venture, the Jim Pattison Foundation’s $5 million gift comes with an extraordinary opportunity: it is structured as a matching gift. This means each dollar you contribute toward advancing health care innovation will unlock an additional dollar from the Pattison Foundation.
Help us bring innovative solutions to health care in the Southern Interior with a gift today.
Launched in the spring of 2023, the goal is to raise $40 million to support local advancement in eight priority areas of health care. Most notably, almost $15 million (40%) of the campaign goal is dedicated specifically to innovation.
