Kelowna General Hospital Foundation



The KGH Foundation was established in 1978 to support provincial standards and to achieve new levels of advanced medical care in the southern interior.

We are the lead fundraising organization for the Kelowna General Hospital and its associated care facilities, JoeAnna’s House and the Central Okanagan Hospice House.

Your legacy gift will help excellence in health care thrive at KGH.

Our Impact

We all will face a medical emergency or serious illness at some point in our lives. And when we do, access to state-of-the-art medical facilities and the highest quality patient care makes all the difference.

Together with donors, we support patient-centred health care and world-class medical innovations right here at home.

KGH Foundation donor Jessica Dichow shares why she and her husband chose to leave a gift to the foundation in their Will.

“We want to directly impact our own community,” says Dichow. “We considered giving back for future generations. KGH services every single demographic – every age, gender, socio-economic condition, everyone. Everybody benefits. And donating a percentage of our estate eliminates the worry that there might not be enough for everybody.”

How your gift will be used

Leaving the world a better place is worth striving for. Donating a portion of your estate to the KGH Foundation is a thoughtful way for you to continue to inspire advances in care.

Bequests support many priority needs, including, new facilities, new equipment, and access to specialized medical procedures closer to home.

The Province provides funding for the basic standard of care required, but personal donations help make true excellence in health care possible.

You are the vital link. By making a bequest to KGH Foundation, you can look after those who mean the most to you and help KGH give patients the best healthcare possible.

We are here to help you learn and plan.
