The BC Paraplegic Foundation provides essential financial support to enable the successful delivery of Spinal Cord Injury BC’s Peer Program and Information Services.
To contact the Foundation please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Foundation was established in 1975 when employees of Premier Cablevision collected funds in memory of a co-worker who had a spinal cord injury. Their donation was matched by the company and totaled just over $1,000.
Today, the Foundation holds assets valued at over $6 million and relies on investment income, donations from individuals and corporations, and legacy gifts and bequests to achieve its charitable goals. All contributions of funds and volunteer efforts are gratefully accepted.
In addition, the Foundation awards annual scholarships and bursaries to students with spinal cord injury who meet the Foundation’s funding criteria.
