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.
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.”
