His generous gifts of time and expertise have made it possible for us to build a 73 bedroom Ronald McDonald House BC and better meet the needs of BC and Yukon families who depend on our services. Gary Segal is president of Kingswood Capital Corporation and a noted Vancouver philanthropist. In his leadership roles at such organizations as the Louis Brier Home and Hospital for Seniors and Spread the Love Project for Ethiopia, Gary has been committed to ensuring that families both locally and internationally have the support they need to thrive. Gary has served on the Board of Directors of Ronald McDonald House BC since 2008 and has been an invaluable member of this organization. Gary recognized the vital need to provide more accommodation for seriously ill children and their families in BC, and became the Chair of our Capital Campaign to build our new House. He has been instrumental in lobbying for and securing many major gifts to the Campaign, including a $13.375 matching grant from the Government of British Columbia. Gary’s outstanding support means that 73 families each night have a ‘home away from home.’ We would like to thank him for his many contributions to Ronald McDonald House BC and for his incredible generosity to so many worthy organizations.

Far from home. Financially strained. Emotionally drained. Every year, thousands of families come to Vancouver in search of life-saving medical treatment for their seriously ill children. Finding themselves in a strange city and in a vulnerable state, these families long for life’s simple comforts: a bed to sleep in, a kitchen to prepare a hot meal and a couch to put up their feet after a long day at the hospital. More than anything though, they seek a safe and affordable place where their family can stay together under one roof. Within our walls, kids undergoing treatment for cancer and other devastating diseases bask in the glow of family love. Here, parents under siege share stories with others who face similar challenges. And here, people have access to services that help put some joy and normalcy back into their lives. Ronald McDonald House® British Columbia is more than just a place for families to stay – it’s a place for families to heal better together.
