In Memory, In Honour or in Celebration of someone special!

Honour someone close to you with an In Memory or In Honour Tribute for Variety BC

Tribute Giving at Variety BC

Honour someone special in your life and consider making a tribute gift to Variety – the Children’s Charity of BC in their memory. It’s a wonderful way to celebrate your loved one’s legacy and create lasting remembrance that lives on in the spirit of BC’s kids.

Donations made in memory of loved ones help Variety BC ensure kids from diverse backgrounds and facing adversity can reach their fullest potential to thrive. Often referred to as the “last resort” charity, Variety BC receives roughly 10 applications a day from families seeking support for their children. And thanks to generous supporters like you, we’re able to respond to this urgent need.

When donating in memory of a loved one you will receive an official tax receipt confirming the details of your donation, and Variety BC will mail a card to the honouree’s next of kin acknowledging your thoughtful gift (the amount will not be included).

How Your Gift Changes Lives

For over 55 years, Variety – the Children’s Charity has stepped in to fill the gaps where health care ends by providing direct support to BC’s kids and their families.


What does your gift look like?

• Mobility equipment that allows children to get out and be active in their communities
• Medical equipment like hearing aids so a child can hear their mother’s voice for the first time
• Specialized therapies for kids to learn how to communicate effectively, get stronger after cancer treatment, or learn to master everyday skills that will help them find confidence and independence
• Access to counselling services for kids who may be struggling with mental wellness in their day-to-day lives
• Educational support such as bursaries for tutoring and tuition for specialized schools so children can succeed and thrive in the classroom

And now Variety BC has expanded its funding to include:

• Private autism assessments
• Private psychoeducational assessments
• Equine therapy
• Music therapy

You have the freedom to choose how your donation helps, or simply can request it funds the area of greatest need at this time.
