Host a Fundraising Event

Make a difference in our community and help change lives! Every year, numerous individuals and organizations take a leadership role by organizing their own fundraising events in support of the KGH Foundation, and our mission to advance healthcare in the Interior region. Our community-hosted fundraising events and initiatives are run independently by community-minded citizens and are an integral part of the KGH Foundation.

Funds raised from fundraisers can benefit a variety of programs or themes in health care, from our Current Priorities to a specific initiative or department, including Stroke, JoeAnna’s House and Area of Greatest Need.

*Given the current gathering restrictions, we recommend you host a virtual event or host your own personal online fundraiser! For more information on the current public health guidelines regarding group events in light of COVID-19, please click here.

“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.”

“The Kelowna General Hospital is the center of our city and community. We knew that our fundraising efforts would have a direct impact on any of the programs we chose to raise funds for. Our Kelowna Nordic members also found the KGH very approachable and easy to work with.”

“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.”
