The Power of your Gift

Donating to the Vancouver Prostate Centre brings our pioneering researchers one step closer to the final challenge: defeating treatment-resistant prostate cancer.  Thanks to the generosity of our donors, over the past two decades, Vancouver Prostate Centre researchers and clinicians have:

  • Developed and delivered optimized care to BC men with prostate cancer
  • Created a Centre of Excellence in prostate cancer research that attracts top research talent and is recognized worldwide
  • Identified an entirely new class of drugs, which can effectively inhibit and, in some cases, eliminate a receptor that plays a critical role in treatment resistance.

How does the Vancouver Prostate Centre receive donations?

The Vancouver Prostate Centre receives donations through the VGH & UBC Hospital Foundation, the UBC Faculty of Medicine and the Urology Foundation.  All are registered charities that issue tax receipts.  These charities raise funding for the latest, most sophisticated medical equipment, world-class research and training, and improvements to patient care. 

The VGH & UBC Hospital Foundation and UBC Faculty of Medicine receive donations for a number of critical causes, but any gifts specifically designated for the Vancouver Prostate Centre will be directed towards our own innovative and visionary research and training programs.
