Ways to Give

Your support makes a difference in the lives of those affected by schizophrenia and helps us provide family and friends with “a reason to hope and the means to cope.”

Help us help families

No matter the size of your donation or how you give, your generosity helps fund support for family and friends of people living with schizophrenia in BC through education, advocacy, and research. Making a one-time or monthly donation, providing a gift in memory of a loved one, donating stocks or including BCSS in your will are all ways to support life-saving support and education.

Donors make a difference

Learn from Catherine about how donations make a difference to individuals affected by severe and persistent mental illness.


Give in honour or in-memory

Making a tribute donation is a meaningful way to honour and celebrate a loved one or to express your sympathy to those who have lost someone. Pay tribute with a donation to support those affected by schizophrenia. There are two types of tribute gifts:

  • Memorial Donation – Give a gift in the name of a special someone who is no longer with us.
  • Honorary Donation – Give a gift in the name of someone important to you (whether it is to celebrate a special occasion, such as a birthday, wedding, or anniversary, or just because).
