About us:

Children’s Health Foundation of Vancouver Island (CHFVI) has invested in the health of Island kids for almost 100 years. Our mission is to ensure all Island families have access to the health care they need, when and where they need it the most. Thanks to the generosity of our donors, we are able to bring supports closer to home and help transform the lives of children and youth living with physical and mental health challenges.

We collaborate with communities, partner organizations, and donors to fund programs and provide supports to address the daily and often urgent health care needs families face when caring for a child with complex health challenges. Our crucial fundraising work began with inpatient support for kids with polio and other physical health challenges in 1927 and has evolved with every emerging health care need in the decades since.

We know kids may only be 21% of our Island’s population, but they are 100% of our future. Help us invest in this future and join us as champions for the health of every Island family.
