One of the ways that VGH & UBC Hospital Foundation ensures excellence in health care is by making the best use of every dollar raised. We are proud to report that in 2012-13 the Foundation’s cost per dollar was 19 cents (excluding lottery revenue and related expenses), which is significantly lower than the industry average of 31 cents.* Thanks to our donors, our 2012-13 consolidated revenue, including lotteries and investments, totaled $61.4 million.
