Giving back and supporting local health care is a strong value for the team at World Duty Free Vancouver. The team is dedicated to building a better and healthier future for Richmond.

Richmond Hospital Foundation

For over 30 years, Richmond Hospital Foundation has raised over $100 million to help fund vital medical equipment, improvements in patient care services and upgraded facilities. Our goal is to inspire joyful giving within our community to build a better and healthier future for Richmond.

ACT NOW Campaign

Richmond Hospital urgently needs a new Acute Care Tower to replace the original hospital tower, which is more than 50 years old, seismically unstable and obsolete with severely deficient infrastructure unable to meet the needs of Richmond’s dramatically growing and aging population. More in-patient beds, larger operating rooms and a “future-ready” design will be just some of the many innovative features in the tower. Richmond Hospital Foundation’s goal with its ACT NOW campaign is to inspire giving to raise at least $50 million in philanthropic commitments to help fund a new Acute Care Tower at Richmond Hospital.
