About TB Vets
TB Vets arms the medical frontline in the fight for respiratory care by providing critical respiratory equipment, research and education in BC.
For over 75 years, TB Vets Charitable Foundation has given hope to individuals and families in their hour of great need. We serve all British Columbians suffering from respiratory emergencies — from urban centres in Vancouver to rural and remote communities in Northern B.C.
This is possible because of TB Vets donors like you. Your generosity helps us save lives.
Funding provided by TB Vets for urgent respiratory equipment, research and education in British Columbia
Each year since 1980, TB Vets has provided approximately 20 ventilators/year to address the urgent need for respiratory equipment across British Columbia.
A ventilator is used roughly 5x/day in an emergency room. That’s 36,500 patients on 20 ventilators per year. For 75 years, we have helped 2,737,500 lives.
How your gift will be used
By making a planned gift such as a bequest in your Will, you can make a difference in BC’s respiratory frontline without affecting your current income. Apart from a gift in your Will, other ways to leave a legacy gift include naming TB Vets as a beneficiary of your life insurance, RRSP, RRIF or securities. Whichever option you choose, you can feel good that for years to come your gift will make a difference to both frontline medical heroes and the respiratory patients they care for.
