Angels like you make the world a better place

Honour your angel, a loved one, or a member of our health care team by making a donation to support our hospitals.

Thank you for the incredible care I received. Such understanding and personal compassion from my doctor and nurses was so important during my recovery.

Be an Angel... Give an Angel

Honour your angel, a loved one, or a member of our health care team by making a donation to support our hospitals.

Each year at VGH, our winter wonderland trees are filled with thousands of Angels carrying messages of love and appreciation for friends and family, medical teams and hospital staff, and all the special people in our lives.

Honour the angels in your life with a donation to VGH & UBC Hospital and write a personal message to a loved one or a member of our health care team.

The angel ornaments will be hung on the winter wonderland trees in the lobby of VGH from November to January, lifting the spirits of patients and families, staff and visitors.

Thanks to generous donors, our Angel campaign has raised more than $2 Million since 2001. We invite you to visit our Winter Wonderland, and to honour an angel in your life with a donation in their name.

Your donation will support our hospitals’ most urgent needs, helping to purchase critical equipment, funding the latest research, and advancing patient care. Every donation helps ensure that our hospitals and health care teams continue to deliver BC’s best, most specialized care for adults.

Liz's Story

I had a whole team of angels supporting me when I was a patient at Vancouver General Hospital. Dr. McConnell and her team were essential in saving my life. But they couldn’t have done it without the donations that helped purchase the equipment essential to my surgery and recovery.Liz Eisner, Grateful Patient

Dedicate your Angel

Not only does your gift have the power to transform and save lives, it also provides you or your organization with name recognition at our hospital.
