Donating to Research

Generous individuals and companies who support research at Providence Health Care play an important role in helping to ensure that our organization is able to recruit and retain renowned investigators in every area of research, from the laboratory to the bedside.

St. Paul's Foundation

St. Paul's Foundation raises money for equipment, research and enhanced patient care at Providence Health Care’s St. Paul’s Hospital, a major academic health science centre based in downtown Vancouver. Equipment is particularly important for research — access to the most up-to-date technology is essential for attracting new specialists who will be active in research as well as providing improved patient care at Providence Health Care.

Tapestry Foundation for Health Care

Tapestry Foundation for Health Care has a long history of supporting the health and well-being of seniors. Donations help to enhance the day to day care experience of seniors living in residential care homes operated by Providence Health Care, and also support innovative research into new and better ways of caring for seniors living with dementia.

Tapestry Foundation raises funds to support priority needs at seven Providence sites that offer seniors’ care, hospital care and physical rehabilitation services. Donations are used for purchases of medical equipment, quality of life programs and services, professional medical education, and elder care research.
