Through your contributions we are able to make meaningful and lasting impacts in our communities.
The BC Nurses' Union has set up a legacy fund with the
Vancouver Foundation* as a way to effectively ensure a consistent stream of income can be used to support priority giving areas.
BCNU is proud to support student nurse opportunities like
Canadian Nursing Student's Association, professional development for members through BC Patient Safety & Quality Council's Quality Forum, humanitarian and disaster relief efforts and fundraising campaigns.
*Currently, Vancouver Foundation administers the funds of more than 400 charitable agencies of all sizes and types across British Columbia.
The World Health Organization has designated 2020 the Year of the Nurse and Midwife. Throughout this year, donors can take this opportunity to acknowledge the care they've received from a nurse by making a donation with the option to send a personalized eCard.** Donations over $25 will receive an electronic tax receipt.
Consider making a gift in memory or in honour of a loved one by making a donation, with the option to send a personalized eCard**. Donations over $25 will receive an electronic tax receipt.
** eCards are a digital alternative to mailed greeting cards. An eCard allows you to donate to the BC Nurses' Union Fund online, while also sending out a personal greeting to family, friends, loved ones or acquaintances through email.
Giving Priorities - Sponsorship and Donations
BCNU selects its sponsorship and donations after a careful review against its strategic directions and annual priority giving areas. Organizations that enhance our professional voice of nursing, build relationships, advance clinical practice, provide education and mentorship, research and leadership in nursing, as well as address societal inequities in our communities help to guide our funding decisions.
The 2020 giving priorities focus on empowerment, health or violence prevention. Since inception, BCNU has provided financial support to dozens of organizations including recent contributions to BC Patient Safety & Quality Council, Canadian Nursing Students’ Association, Food Banks BC, Gerontological Nurses Association, The Kettle Society, Out in Schools, QMUNITY, University of British Columbia, and YWCA.
