Donations & Fundraising

The Palliative Care Society of the Bow Valley (PCSBV) is planning to raise an estimated amount of $476,000 during our April 1, 2018 to March 31, 2019 fiscal year on fund raising campaigns. The PCSBV estimates that it will cost not more than $50,000 to raise this amount. The money raised will be going to promote health by providing, over the long-term, an accredited palliative care unit in the Bow Valley that will provide appropriate palliative care accommodation, therapy and support, at no cost, to residents of the region and beyond who are suffering from terminal, or life-threatening illness, and to support their families before, during and after the loss of their relatives. It is also intended money will go to promoting health by providing trained support volunteers from the local communities to work alongside paid staff working with patients in the palliative care unit or in the community. In addition, we plan to undertake several other activities ancillary and incidental to the attainment of the above charitable purposes.
