Your monthly contributions will provide a stable, much-needed source of funding for year-round support to the areas of greatest need.

Rachel & Mark’s Story

When Mark's wife Rachel learned he had a stroke, she could not comprehend how he could be faced with this

“Making a monthly contribution to our hospital goes beyond just dollars and cents. It’s about teaching our kids empathy and compassion. It’s about pride in this city and the world-class healthcare made possible by philanthropy. And it’s about giving back to the place that gave us two healthy children, and subsequently, expert care in the Emergency Room on a few occasions! Thank you KGH!”

“We are so grateful to live in this community, where we are free to enjoy so much with friends and family. Supporting the Kelowna General Hospital Foundation through planned monthly giving is easy, and it is one of the ways that we can give back. Our local and provincial health care system is second to none. It is here for us and for our kids when we need it most – and that’s why we choose to be donors.”

“People always ask why, but maybe they should ask why not! You get to work with the nicest people, for the nicest people. It’s the best kind of job satisfaction you’ll ever find.”

“Linking the passion and desires of donors to the needs/opportunities of the health system and KGH is such a privilege. I am inspired most by the people; our team, donors, clinicians & caregivers, and administrators and ultimately, the transformative changes to our system of care that become possible when we work together. I am grateful to be able to feel such purpose in my work.”
