COVID-19 Response Fund: Support our health care teams on the front lines to provide the best possible care
This fund is designed to be flexible and nimble to allow our Vancouver Coastal Health partners to rapidly deploy funding to support the thousands of health care workers providing world-class care across our facilities and in our community.
Donations will support the priority needs of front line staff, which could include meals while on shift, educational and emotional support, patient care supplies, IT assets, and other emerging requests to support our response to COVID-19.
Join us in taking care of each other.
Donate to VGH & UBC Hospital Foundation’s COVID-19 Response Fund today.
Donations to the COVID-19 Response Fund have helped those on the front lines by providing:
Sophisticated cardiac and respiratory monitoring equipment and vital sign monitors.
Fast-tracked renovations to respond to the changing environmental needs during the pandemic, enhancing safety for patients and staff. Environmental improvements include installing negative air flow to help reduce virus transmission and windows to help improve visibility.
iPads and other technology to help isolated patients and families communicate, as well as enable virtual health more broadly across the health care system.
Rest and nourishment
Staff on the dedicated COVID-19 units are working tirelessly and ensuring they are well fed has been a top priority.
