2011 – 2012 annual report

Anyone who has spent time with a child knows that they often ask the most candid questions. Where do I come from? Why is the sky blue? Why can’t I do that? They are also upfront about their wants, needs and feelings. It’s mine. I want to walk. Carry me. It hurts.


n 2011, 81,429 children from across BC and the Yukon passed through the doors of BC Children’s Hospital. Each of them had their own questions that they wanted answered. We hear questions from the simple “Will it hurt?” to the more profound “Why me?” It is our duty and honour to serve these children, and to do everything we can to give them the answers they seek.

Why are we able to do what we do? It’s because of the generosity of people like you.

hildren are known for being honest and direct in their statements. Sometimes, though, it is up to us – the grown-ups – to speak for them. Although they often find ways to let us know they want something, children are not necessarily the best advocates for their own needs. That’s where you come in.

In BC Children’s Hospital Foundation’s 2011-12 fiscal year, we received donations from 150,406 people like you. These expressions of support – for the hospital, Sunny Hill Health Centre for Children and the Child & Family Research Institute (CFRI) – give voice to children and youth who rely on us to advocate for them. With your support, and your advocacy, you are shaping the future of pediatric care in BC. Your generous donations to the hospital, Sunny Hill and CFRI address the current and future health needs of children and youth in BC and the Yukon. Many of our donors have made gifts to the Campaign for BC Children, our capital campaign in support of the construction of a new BC Children’s Hospital and of Child Health BC, which is improving access to specialized care closer to home for children around the province. This sort of forward thinking – making gifts that will have an impact on children who are today very young or not yet born – is shaping the future of pediatric care. Your active support of the campaign shows you believe that children deserve the best care and every opportunity for good health. When you advocate for children in this manner, people take notice, change happens and lives are transformed.

Teri Nicholas, president & ceo, bc children’s hospital foundation

In the past fiscal year, we provided just over $50 million to BC Children’s Hospital and Sunny Hill, including over $9 million to support research at CFRI. This funding, provided on an annual basis, has a significant impact on clinical care, research and education. For example, in June, we celebrated the opening of a new magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) facility at the hospital. The new device, a three-tesla (or 3T) MRI has twice the power of the hospital’s current MRI. While this was funded primarily with federal and provincial dollars, our foundation – thanks to support from BC’s mining community – was able to provide the last piece of funding, over $1 million, to make this possible. The information gained through research in this facility has significant implications for our understanding of neonatal brain development and for the care of premature babies.

Just as donations made in previous years touched the lives of 81,429 individual patients who made 212,507 visits to BC Children’s Hospital in 2011 alone, the money raised in 2011-12 will touch the lives of hundreds of thousands of children in the years ahead. Each of the donations made to the hospital and Sunny Hill in the past year has an impact on care today and on our ability to deliver even better care tomorrow. It is clear that a ventilator purchased with money raised in 2011-12 has

In June 2011, we celebrated our annual Miracle Weekend with yet another record fundraising total of $17.9 million. This total reflects the widespread support we receive from individuals across BC and the Yukon and from a full range of industry sectors, from retail/wholesale and hospitality and restaurants, to real estate and banking.


an immediate impact on the health of children treated at the hospital. It is perhaps less clear, but no less true, that gifts to our capital campaign in support of the construction of the new BC Children’s Hospital, which will open in 2018, are also having an immediate effect. The promise of the new hospital is enabling the hospital to recruit highly sought-after pediatric subspecialists from around the world. Your gifts make these changes possible. Your gifts allow us to meet the present and future critical health needs of children and youth in BC and the Yukon. Your gifts give voice to those who cannot speak for themselves. But year after year, when children do learn to speak and when they come to understand what you – our donors – have done for them, we hear them say thank you. Thank you for your support.

he first signs of the transformation that is taking place on the BC Children’s Hospital site are now evident. In September the doors will open to the new Clinical Support Building – which already has the moniker, CSB. Construction of the CSB represents an important step as we prepare for the demolition of most of the old Shaughnessy Hospital to make way for our new, state-of-the-art, Children’s Hospital. Medical and administrative staff and hospital clinics currently housed in the 72-year-old Shaughnessy building must be relocated on and off the site, so completion of the CSB, which will house staff who must remain on site, will be a milestone worth celebrating.

There is a growing sense of excitement among our board members, staff and donors as plans for the new hospital progress. Earlier this year I visited a warehouse in a quiet corner of Burnaby where you’d never guess amazing things have been happening – this is where the new BC Children’s Hospital has been, quite literally, taking shape. For two years, hospital staff and planners have been applying the principles of LEAN, aimed at improving efficiency and reducing waste, to ensure we design and build the best hospital possible – one that puts children and families first while ensuring medical staff can do their best work. This has led us to the 13,500-square-metre warehouse where entire floors of the new hospital are being assembled with cardboard walls. It’s fascinating to walk these cardboard corridors with parents, doctors and caregivers as they test and discuss various patient-care scenarios and the issues that arise: Does the floor plan we’re testing permit the isolation of hospital areas and patients in the event of a disease outbreak? Where can siblings play while a brother or sister is undergoing treatment? If we place children in the same area before and after surgery, will those recovering from surgery upset those preparing for it? The questions are countless and vital.

Don Lindsay, chair, the campaign for bc children

The value lies in our ability to test these scenarios before construction gets underway. Planners are able to make changes before a shovel has broken the ground, rather than being forced to make modifications during the construction process or to renovate to compensate for oversights shortly after the doors open. Medical staff whose expertise lies in caring for patients rather than in the study of architectural drawings can gain a sense first-hand of what their area will look like in the new hospital and allow planners to benefit from the insights they bring to the process. And, parents who have spent hundreds of hours in the hospital bring perhaps the most important perspective – how will the new design work for them and their children. Walking through these mocked-up floors has given me even greater confidence – as a donor and as chair of the Campaign for BC Children – that when the doors to the new BC Children’s Hospital open we will be able to feel proud of what we have accomplished. As of June 2012, 67,543 donors had contributed $142.5 million to the Campaign for BC Children. With every passing day we can see with ever greater clarity how – through Child Health BC (page 16) and the construction of the new BC Children’s Hospital – those gifts are having, and will continue to have, an impact on the lives of countless children from BC and the Yukon. Thank you for supporting the Campaign for BC Children.

Complaints of a sore tummy were the first signs that something was wrong with Oscar. An ultrasound revealed that the lump on Oscar’s stomach was actually an aggressive tumour in his right kidney. At BC Children’s, doctors performed an emergency operation on the youngster to remove the affected kidney. In the months following the surgery Oscar endured multiple radiation and chemotherapy treatments to stop the growth of remaining cancer cells. Oscar was in remission for a brief period before doctors found that his cancer had returned. The four-year-old now faces further treatment. Despite the hardships, Oscar always has a smile on his face, and caregivers at Children’s Hospital have come to know and adore his energy and lively personality.

BC Children’s Hospital belongs to everyone. Any child – among the close to one million children living in BC and the Yukon – who is seriously ill or injured is referred to Children’s Hospital and is either treated at the hospital in Vancouver or, in consultation with Children’s specialists, in their home community.


ast year, 81,429 children from across the province and territory made 212,507 visits to BC Children’s Hospital. Initially built to accommodate 35,000 annual visits, the hospital has been operating beyond its capacity for years. We want to give today’s children, and future generations, a hospital they can be proud of. We’re doing this through the Campaign for BC Children. Launched in 2008, the $200-million Campaign for BC Children has three objectives: To support the construction of a new BC Children’s Hospital;


To support the expansion of Child Health BC, a Children’s Hospital initiative, so that children have access to a consistent and high standard of specialized care, no matter where in the province they live;


To relocate child development and rehabilitation services currently housed at Sunny Hill Health Centre for Children in East Vancouver to the hospital’s main site.

BC Children’s Hospital Foundation is raising $150 million toward the construction of the new hospital and $50 million for Child Health BC. The cost of construction of the new hospital is $682 million. When the new BC Children’s Hospital opens in 2018, it will be a facility that every child will be proud to call their own.

Capstone Mining Corp. With operations across BC and the Yukon, as well as in Mexico and Chile, Capstone Mining Corp. is dedicated to giving back to the communities in which its employees live and work. This makes supporting BC Children’s Hospital, a facility that serves children and families in every corner of the province and territory, a natural fit and a top priority for the BC-based company. Since 2007, Capstone has given generously – not only financially, but also of its employees’ time. Key members of Capstone’s team have served on the Mining for Miracles committee, the mining industry’s annual fundraising campaign for BC Children’s. In 2010, Capstone took its support to new heights with a $3-million commitment to the Oncology Outpatient Clinic in the new hospital. At any given time, close to 1,000 children are in active cancer treatment at BC Children’s Hospital; Capstone’s gift will have an impact on each of these children and make a meaningful difference in their lives.

Since the launch of the Campaign for BC Children – the largest healthcare fundraising initiative the province has ever seen – 67,543 generous individuals, corporations and organizations have opened their hearts and wallets in support of this initiative that promises to bring fundamental changes to the way children receive health care in the years to come.


onstruction hasn’t yet started for the new BC Children’s Hospital, but the Clinical Support Building, located on the hospital site and a part of Phase 1 of the redevelopment project, is expected to be complete in September 2012. This $14-million, 2,400-squaremetre building will house staff who will have vacated their workspaces in the Shaughnessy building, parts of which will be demolished to make way for the new hospital.

In January 2012, planning entered the Integrated Facility Design (IFD) phase, during which the “flows” of medicine are tested in a full-scale model of hospital floors. The scale and magnitude of this design process is the largest undertaken in North America and many aspects of it will serve as a framework for the development of other hospitals. In a 13,500-square-metre warehouse in Burnaby, medical and non-medical staff, parents and hospital supporters have been touring through mazes of cardboard walls that replicate initial design concepts of each floor of the new Children’s Hospital. Giving caregivers and families the opportunity to walk through the spaces, rather than just see them on paper, has given them a greater understanding of how the spaces work and, importantly, has allowed them and hospital planners to identify and address any inadequacies in the design.

2011-2012 bc children’s hospital foundation annual report

Meanwhile, activities surrounding the planning and design of the new hospital continued with fervour.


In a 13,500-square-metre warehouse in Burnaby, full-size mock-ups of each floor in the new BC Children’s Hospital are put together using cardboard walls – one floor at a time. During each session those who are closest to the hospital – caregivers, researchers, administrators, donors and parents – move through the model to test the flows of medicine using day-to-day patient care scenarios.

2011-2012 bc children’s hospital foundation annual report


In the new facility, patients will not have to move throughout the system as a convenience to the hospital; rather, the new hospital will be built around meeting children’s and families’ needs. Relevant services will be brought closer together so that when a child with cancer requires anesthesia, for example, the patient does not have to leave the oncology floor and can have the procedure done in the same area, enhancing comfort and safety. Input from families has been invaluable throughout the IFD process. A clear consensus is that patient rooms should be larger, with a private bathroom and a bed for parents in every room. Many parents have stressed the importance of having spacious patient rooms, which will enable them to spend more time with their child, better support their child emotionally, and allow them to enjoy simple comforts like having a meal together. The IFD process reduces waste and costs, ensures all space is used effectively, and enhances care for patients and families. Furthermore, it will ensure that the design criteria provided to the team selected to undertake the final design and construction of the new BC Children’s Hospital reflects the best thinking of BC Children’s medical staff, administrators, parents and planners. Teck Resources Limited committed to a $25-million gift to support the construction of the new BC Children’s Hospital – the largest gift in the hospital’s history.


Four-year-old Jonathan Dean is one of many BC children benefiting from Child Health BC. He has a genetic condition called CHARGE syndrome, is deaf and blind, and requires specialized care in speech therapy, audiology, respirology and ophthalmology, among others. He has a tracheotomy to breathe and a feeding tube. Prior to the opening of the Pediatric Ambulatory Health Clinic at Nanaimo Regional General Hospital in 2009, Jonathan and his family travelled regularly from their home in Nanaimo to BC Children’s Hospital in Vancouver. Although Jonathan still goes to BC Children’s at least once a year for checkups, most of his care is now managed by caregivers in Nanaimo.

Child Health BC undertook an extensive review of the Pediatric Ambulatory Health Clinic in Nanaimo, which was made possible by $1.9 million in funding from Child Health BC as well as two years of bridge operational funding. Before the clinic was built, more than 2,000 patients and families from central and northern Vancouver Island were making 6,500 trips to BC Children’s Hospital annually for specialized care. The clinic’s opening has allowed many of these families to receive care closer to home; between April 2009 and March 2011, approximately 1,200 families made over 3,000 visits to the child-friendly clinic. As a result, many families on the Island are spared the stress and expense of commuting to BC Children’s Hospital in Vancouver, and many medical and nursing students in the area have received valuable training in pediatrics at the clinic.

The early focus of this collaborative service planning is the development of provincial plans for the delivery of pediatric cancer services, palliative care, and emergency and surgical services. In conjunction with this initiative, Child Health BC is supporting the development of provincial standards and continues to hold workshops, attended by health professionals from across the province, to share knowledge and build pediatric care capacity in the regions. Topics discussed at the workshops include cystic fibrosis, social pediatrics, weight management and the monitoring of hip health for children with cerebral palsy. Overwaitea Food Group is Child Health BC’s lead benefactor with a pledge of $20 million.

In 2011 Child Health BC took on a new strategic direction to facilitate the development of a single provincial health services plan for children and youth. A uniform service plan, created in collaboration with provincial partners, is of paramount importance if we are to ensure the province has the ability to provide high-quality services in a way that meets children’s and families’ needs, and that the provision of these services is cost-effective and feasible from a human resource perspective.



BC Children’s Hospital Foundation continued to receive strong support for the campaign, including a $1-million gift from Brian and Andrea Hill and a $3-million commitment from the South Asian community – through the A Night of Miracles gala – for an interventional radiology room in the new Children’s Hospital. These donations, along with contributions from tens of thousands of other individuals and corporations, have helped us raise $142.5 million of our $200-million campaign goal.

Addison McArthur As reporters with Global BC, Aaron McArthur and Elaine Yong have covered many stories at BC Children’s Hospital. Never would they have imagined that one day, their child would be the subject of one of these stories. Three weeks after Addison McArthur was born her heart began to fail, rapidly. Her condition was so serious that doctors at BC Children’s determined that her only chance of survival was a heart transplant. In May 2011 Addison became the first infant to receive a heart transplant at BC Children’s. She recently celebrated her first birthday and Aaron and Elaine could not be happier with the way their baby is progressing. They are grateful to have the opportunity to give back to the hospital through Global BC’s support of Miracle Weekend; they now report the hospital’s stories with an extra sense of personal conviction and gratitude.

Dr. Djavad Mowafaghian Growing up in a modest household in Iran, Dr. Djavad Mowafaghian learned from his mother that it was his duty to be kind and generous to others, and to consider the well-being of future generations. Since he made BC his home in 1987, Dr. Mowafaghian has demonstrated a deep desire and passion for helping children, contributing more than $10 million to BC Children’s Hospital. Dr. Mowafaghian’s philanthropy has transformed the environment in which children receive care at the hospital; his gift to the Campaign for BC Children is also ensuring the new BC Children’s is well-positioned to care for children and families in the years to come. Through his generosity, Dr. Mowafaghian is inspiring young people to follow his lead and giving them every opportunity to pursue their dreams.


Children don’t like to wait in line. That’s why caregivers in the Department of Surgery have strived to alleviate the wait-lists for surgery through improvements in operational efficiency and additional operating room resources.


n 2011, our specialists performed 8,579 operations and clocked 13,502 surgical hours. Thanks to extra funding from the Provincial Health Services Authority for additional operating room hours, the number of hip surgeries performed increased from 55 to 99 and the number of spine surgeries went up from 123 to 187 compared with the year before. As a result, children requiring hip and spine operations are receiving more timely care.

Research activities continue to improve care and treatments for children. One of the hospital’s newest recruits, Dr. Neil Chadha, a pediatric otolaryngology surgeon and director of pediatric otolaryngology research, is supervising a number of clinical research studies to help children with ear, nose and throat diseases.

Under the leadership of cardiothoracic surgeon, Dr. Sanjiv Gandhi, the cardiac surgery team at BC Children’s has all but eliminated its surgical wait-list. They have also reduced the use of blood transfusions and cut the length of stay in the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit for patients following open-heart surgery by more than half. Last year, Children’s cardiac team performed 360 operations. This included 228 open-heart operations, over half of which were performed on patients under a year old, and many on newborn babies. Dr. Gandhi’s contributions were recognized by the BC Patient Safety & Quality Council. His team received the prestigious 2012 Leadership in Quality award for leading health-care initiatives that helped to increase productivity, efficiency and safety.


Recently, Dr. Chadha completed the first randomized controlled trial to determine if using a nose spray prior to inserting a flexible camera into a child’s nose can reduce the amount of discomfort felt during an endoscopy. His findings showed that a decongestant spray was more effective than using either saline or a local anesthetic. As a result, the way in which nose endoscopies are performed has changed for the better, with children experiencing less pain and discomfort during the procedure. Dr. Chadha’s team is also looking into the use of medication to treat obstructive sleep apnea versus performing surgery, studying the sinus-related quality of life in children with cystic fibrosis, improving voice outcomes for children with different types of voice box surgery, and understanding the role of acid reflux in noisy breathing in newborn babies. Through these and other innovative and patient-centred research activities, BC’s children and families can be assured they will have access to timely and the best possible surgical care.

Within the span of a week, Kent and Kelly McIvor learned that both of their daughters – Katrina and Kiarra – have cystic fibrosis (CF). CF is a life-limiting disease for which there is currently no cure. To maintain their health the sisters must follow a strict routine, which includes physical therapy to clear the lung airways, and take up to 60 pills a day between the two of them. Over the past two decades, the life expectancy of individuals with CF has increased from 14 years to 35. Kent and Kelly are hopeful that research will continue to bring good news for CF patients, and that Katrina and Kiarra will look forward to a bright future.

Lee Family The Lee family believes firmly that the ability to give is a gift in itself. “The more you give, the more you receive” is the mantra of every generation of this family. Having seen and experienced the health-care systems of other countries, the Lee family knows how fortunate British Columbians are. They feel blessed to be in Canada and to have the opportunity to contribute to the building of the new BC Children’s Hospital. The Lees were compelled to give to the Campaign for BC Children for many reasons, including the impact it will have on the hospital’s ability to retain and attract the world’s best caregivers, and the fact that the warm and healing-conducive environment will help children return home to their loved ones sooner. The knowledge that their gift will help children and families in times of great need gives this family a deep sense of fulfilment. They also hope that their support will serve as an inspiration to others in the community.

More than 200 investigators at the Child & Family Research Institute (CFRI) share the goal of giving children every opportunity to grow into healthy adults. Located on the site of BC Children’s Hospital, CFRI is dedicated to excellence in children’s and women’s health research, and is a top institute of its kind in North America.


aving a leading-edge research centre on the hospital campus brings enormous benefits to BC’s children: new knowledge about childhood diseases comes out of the institute almost daily, and our children are among the first in the world to be treated with the latest therapies as soon as they are developed and approved.

BC Children’s Hospital and CFRI are known internationally for their contributions to childhood cancer care. A team comprising Drs. Sandra Dunn, Catherine Pallen and Abbas Fotovati found that removing an overactive protein from some types of brain tumours stops the growth of cancer cells. Their discovery was reported in the August 2011 issue of Cancer Research, the most frequently cited cancer journal in the world.

2011-2012 bc children’s hospital foundation annual report

In July 2011, a team of CFRI researchers, including Drs. Bruce Verchere, Loraine Bischoff, Joel Montane and Rusung Tan, found that increasing levels of a specific protein in areas of the pancreas that produce insulin blocks the immune attack that causes type 1 diabetes. Today, there are about 200,000 British Columbians living with diabetes, including about one in 400 children and adolescents. To survive, children with type 1 diabetes must take insulin injections several times a day for their entire lives. Our researchers’ findings have the potential to change the lives of hundreds of thousands of people living with diabetes in BC and globally.


Research teams are also studying infant brain development. A research study led by Drs. Ruth Grunau and Steven Miller has found that preterm babies who have had more skin-breaking medical procedures – such as needles, IVs and feeding tubes – have slower brain development. This study used advanced magnetic resonance imaging techniques to safely measure the relationship of painful procedures to infant brain development. The next step in this study is to understand how these brain changes affect children’s thinking, motor control and language development. Drs. Dina Panagiotopoulos and Angela Devlin have found that a genetic variation increases the risk to children who are taking second-generation antipsychotic medications, of developing metabolic syndrome – a cluster of conditions that are risk factors for cardiovascular disease. Second-generation antipsychotics are prescribed to approximately 5,500 children and youth in British Columbia for a variety of mental disorders including psychotic, autism spectrum, mood, attention deficit hyperactivity, and anxiety disorders, and substance abuse. Reducing these risks in childhood is a priority because adults with mental illness have a 19 per cent higher mortality rate than normal, largely due to cardiovascular disease.

Kaitlyn Morovic Concern for an infant’s survival shouldn’t be the first emotion a new parent experiences, but when Heather Morovic’s daughter, Kaitlyn, was born with mosaic Down syndrome and two holes in her heart, fear for her newborn daughter’s life overrode everything else. Kaitlyn, now two years old, spent the first six weeks of her life at BC Children’s Hospital and that experience left a lasting impression on Heather and her husband, Nenad. Today, they can’t say enough about the caregivers at BC Children’s. From the surgeon who performed Kaitlyn’s intestinal surgery at 11:30 pm just so “it was done sooner rather than later,” to the nurses who made their hospital stays “magical,” the Morovics are grateful to everyone they’ve met during Kaitlyn’s treatment. The hospital will continue to be a big part of the family’s lives as doctors keep a close eye on Kaitlyn’s health as she grows.

Grace te Boekhorst At just seven years old, Grace te Boekhorst might seem a little young to start fundraising. On the other hand, her experience at BC Children’s Hospital likely gave her all the motivation she needed. Grace had to visit four times a week for hemodialysis to combat the effects of the rare disease she was born with and, at the age of five, she underwent a life-saving kidney transplant. These experiences inspired her to raise money to buy a new plasmapheresis machine so that other children like her can receive the best care. On her seventh birthday – one of her first birthdays not spent in treatment – Grace proudly came to BC Children’s with a cheque for $87,500. To reach this total, Grace saved money from birthday and holiday gifts, and collected over 800 donations from friends, relatives and companies – including a gift of more than $20,000 from BMO Financial Group and its staff. Grace’s experience has inspired others as well. Her grandparents, Barb and Gord Izatt, know that if it weren’t for the caregivers at BC Children’s their granddaughter would not be with them today. Barb and Gord are proud to contribute monthly to a fund set up in honour of Grace to help ensure the best of care is available for other children like Grace.


Sunny Hill Health Centre for Children, a sister facility to and part of BC Children’s Hospital, helps children and youth with developmental and rehabilitation needs reach their full potential. In 2011, 6,614 children born with conditions that affect their learning or development, like cerebral palsy and epilepsy, or who have been injured in accidents, came to Sunny Hill for specialized care. Each child has their unique set of questions and needs, and caregivers provide the answers and support they need to help these children and youth achieve the highest quality of life possible.


C Children’s Hospital Foundation raised $1.2 million in 2011-12 for Sunny Hill’s one-of-a-kind programs, equipment needs and training.

The “I Can Talk Too” program continued to provide children with communication challenges with talking computers, writing aids and other specialized computer software so that they can communicate and interact with those around them. Ninety-one children benefited from this unique program last year.

2011-2012 bc children’s hospital foundation annual report

A total of $338,000 went toward the purchase of specialized equipment such as power wheelchairs, giving children with mobility issues the freedom to move around easily on their own. Sunny Hill’s inpatient dining room and family place were also refurbished, and children and families now have access to a more pleasant environment that enhances healing.


Research is key to improving care. A total of $429,000 went to support research projects that developed measures to monitor the quality of services children and youth with special needs receive, as well as innovative approaches that ensure the continuity and coordination of care for children with complex chronic health conditions. These research initiatives are key to ensuring the needs of children requiring rehabilitation and developmental support are being adequately addressed. Specialists who are trained in pediatrics are highly sought-after in the province. Funding of $118,000 supported fellowships that provided training opportunities to two trainees last year. These positions are essential if we are to train psychologists with hopes of them staying in the field. The funding also gave staff the opportunity to learn at conferences and education sessions, share their research with others and, importantly, bring new knowledge back to Sunny Hill to benefit BC’s kids.

Aidan Chin

Aidan has acute lymphoblastic leukemia and, although he receives some of his chemotherapy treatments at home, he will remain a monthly visitor to BC Children’s Hospital until the end of his treatment in June 2014. Cancer can have a profound impact on a child’s life in many ways. The fact that Aidan, once a shy child, recently spoke about his experience in front of a large crowd shows that the illness has done more than influence his artwork, it has also made him stronger.

2011-2012 bc children’s hospital foundation annual report

Aidan has a creative mind and the 13-year-old’s art reveals how much his world has changed since his cancer diagnosis in February 2011. One of his drawings shows children with IV poles, which Aidan portrays as the children’s “buddies” – friendly entities that help them out.


Costco Wholesale For 20 years, Costco and BC Children’s Hospital have worked together to keep children healthy. In its first year of participation in the hospital’s Miracle Weekend telethon, Costco raised $10,000; two decades later, Costco’s cumulative support for the hospital has grown to more than $10 million. This past June, Costco and its employees celebrated their greatest achievement yet - $1.6 million raised for BC Children’s Hospital in a single year.

Representing the Costco team (from left to right): Randy Whyte, Michael Thompson, Mark Tyszka, John Glassford, Russ Miller, Steve Foster and Mark Johnston.

A culture of giving is embraced by everyone involved with Costco – from its dedicated employees who work tirelessly to raise funds, to its generous members who purchase Miracle Balloon icons at Costco warehouses. The people behind Costco are proud to contribute to the health and well-being of BC’s kids, and look forward to continuing to create a healthier community for today’s children and future generations.


Donations to the Excellence in Child Health Fund safeguard the level of care provided at BC Children’s Hospital by supporting the people who strive to meet our children’s most urgent health needs and giving them the tools they need to do their jobs. Thousands of individuals, organizations and corporations contribute to the fund through their support of Miracle Weekend – a yearlong fundraising campaign that is celebrated on the first weekend of June every year.


Another $2.1 million went to the purchase and upgrading of medical equipment, giving caregivers at BC Children’s and Sunny Hill the tools they need to continue to provide the best possible care to children in BC and the Yukon. Some of the equipment purchased thanks to your generosity includes: „„ A video bronchoscope in the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit – making it easier for our respiratory therapists to see inside children’s airways and examine problems such as bleeding, foreign objects, tumours and inflammation;

n 2011-12, BC Children’s Hospital Foundation transferred $13 million to BC Children’s Hospital from the Excellence in Child Health Fund, the majority of which – $9.3 million – was directed to child-specific research. Our world-class investigators at the Child & Family Research Institute seek to identify and understand the basis of children’s health problems; through their work, they discover new and improved approaches to diagnosing and treating childhood diseases. Our scientists’ projects range from the micro – such as identifying a genetic alteration or malfunctioning molecule and understanding how this gives rise to childhood cancer or diabetes – to the macro – for example, how a child’s interaction with the environment (in the womb, with viruses, or through diet or accidents) impacts health.


„„ A videofluoroscopy chair at Sunny Hill – so that assessments of children’s swallowing ability are safer and easier to conduct; and „„

Syringe feeding pumps – replacing ones that are nearing the end of their lifespan and ensuring nourishment is given to patients with greater precision than is the case with older pumps.

Donor funds also supported educational and training opportunities for medical staff and researchers. Funding of $178,000 for simulation training and support is enabling our caregivers to practise medical procedures in a safe and controlled environment so that when reallife emergencies occur, they are well prepared to respond and save children’s lives. A total of $640,000 in clinical fellowships supported training for physicians in neurosurgery, orthopedics, radiology, psychology, child life, plastic surgery, respirology, nephrology, cardiology, immunization and infectious diseases, and gastroenterology. These fellowships support the next generation of medical professionals and ensure our children of today and tomorrow are cared for by caregivers with outstanding skills and knowledge.


People in British Columbia and the Yukon stepped up to support BC Children’s Hospital, Sunny Hill Health Centre for Children and the Child & Family Research Institute in record numbers in the 2011-12 fiscal year. This widespread support gave the foundation its second consecutive year with revenues of above $80 million. Total consolidated revenues, including lotteries and investments, were $83 million in 2011-12.


Miracle Weekend revenue continues to grow, reaching $17.9 million in 2011-12. Foundation events including ChildRun, Jeans Day™ and the Chinese-Canadian Miracle Weekend each raised over $1 million, while Mining for Miracles and the Banks Division each raised in excess of $2 million and the Retail & Wholesale Division brought in over $5 million. Both of our lotteries – the Choices Lottery and the Dream Lottery – sold out in 2011-12, contributing just under $5 million to support research at BC Children’s Hospital.

2011-2012 bc children’s hospital foundation annual report

lthough fundraising revenue for the year increased by close to $5 million, continued low returns in the investment market led to a year-to-year decrease in investment income and held consolidated revenue to slightly less than the prior year. The $200-million Campaign for BC Children continued to attract donations of all sizes to support the construction of the new BC Children’s Hospital and Child Health BC. At March 31, 2012, the campaign total had reached $140 million against the $200-million goal.


We remain focused on completing the Campaign for BC Children in the next year while continuing to raise the dollars required to meet the annual needs of BC Children’s Hospital, Sunny Hill Health Centre for Children and the Child & Family Research Institute.

The foundation receives funds from a number of special events each year, including Crystal Ball, For Children We Care, Festival of Trees and golf tournaments, as well as independent community events put on by individuals and groups across BC.

BC Children’s Hospital Foundation accepts donations from individuals’ gifts in estate plans, gifts in their will, and gifts of life insurance or from a charitable trust. Tribute gifts are an expression of friendship, love or sympathy and provide a channel for donors to create a lasting remembrance of someone. Gifts may be designated to a particular area of interest. Undesignated gifts are used to meet the hospital’s most urgent needs.

Each year, British Columbians contribute to the United Way and designate Children’s Hospital and Sunny Hill as the funding recipients. In addition, granting agencies may designate funds to a specific program through the foundation.

Donations from individuals, corporations and community groups make up a large percentage of funds received by the foundation. Donors can choose to support a specific area of need at Children’s Hospital, Sunny Hill or the Child & Family Research Institute, or allow the foundation to designate funds where they are needed most.


The annual Miracle Weekend is one of BC Children’s Hospital Foundation’s most visible community fundraising

campaigns. This two-day broadcast is the culmination of a year of fundraising activities by employee groups, service organizations, schools and community groups, and members of the public. The Miracle Weekend includes the A World of Smiles South Asian telethon on Shaw Multicultural Channel, the Chinese-Canadian Miracle Weekend telethon on Fairchild TV and radiothons on CHMB AM1320 and Fairchild Radio AM1470, and BC Children’s Hospital Miracle Weekend on Global BC.


Every year, generous individuals respond to mailed correspondence, television promotions, telephone requests, and door-to-door solicitation conducted by representatives of BC Children’s Hospital Foundation. Many of these donors belong to the Sunshine Club – a monthly donation program that provides a stable and cost-efficient source of funding for the foundation.

^ Donor advised funds established with the Sunshine Fund for Kids and Causes


There are many ways to make a gift to benefit BC’s kids. Bequest in Your Will

A bequest is a direction in your will that a certain sum of money, a particular asset, or a portion of the estate is to be given to British Columbia’s Children’s Hospital Foundation (our legal name). A bequest made to the foundation generates a tax credit that offsets the tax otherwise payable on up to 100 per cent of your net income in the year of death. Unused credits can be carried back one year. These credits may result in significant income tax savings and increase your net estate.

Life Insurance

Giving life insurance is a way of making a gift without depleting your estate or depriving your loved ones of other assets. At the end of your lifetime, the gift of the policy proceeds will be paid by the insurance company directly to BC Children’s Hospital Foundation. Depending on how the policy is structured, you may receive a tax benefit during your lifetime or your estate will receive the benefit.

Publicly Traded Securities


Our pledge program offers you a convenient method of making contributions. The program allows you to spread your contribution over three to five years, usually commencing the year the pledge is made. You will receive full recognition for the value of your contribution as soon as the commitment is made.

BC Children’s Hospital Foundation is a registered Canadian charity and issues tax receipts for all donations. Tax credits generated by donations can offset tax otherwise payable on up to 75 per cent of your net income in the year of the gift. Any unused tax credits may be carried forward and used to offset taxes over the following five years.

Donating securities is the most effective way to give. If you own publicly traded securities that have increased in value and you decide to sell them, 50 per cent of the capital gain is taxable. However, if you donate these securities “in kind” to BC Children’s Hospital Foundation, no tax is payable on the capital gain. The resulting tax credit from the donation of the securities will reduce taxes payable on other income. Making a gift of publicly traded securities to BC Children’s Hospital Foundation is easy to do. Please contact us for a transfer form to facilitate the process.


You can name BC Children’s Hospital Foundation as the direct beneficiary of the proceeds of the RRSP or RRIF or you can make a gift to BC Children’s Hospital Foundation in your will. The resulting tax credit may be used to offset the tax payable on the redemption of the proceeds of the retirement plan.
