Arthritis Research Canada
Macdonald Realty is proud to be the Presenting Sponsor of the 2019 ARThritis Soirée benefiting life-saving arthritis research at Arthritis Research Canada.
Macdonald Realty continues to be a generous supporter of Arthritis Research Canada (ARC). Arthritis Research Canada’s dedicated scientific team is focused on ground-breaking research, finding new ways to prevent arthritis and understand key causes of complications caused by arthritis, such as heart attacks, strokes, hip fractures and lung disease. Arthritis affects 5.6 million Canadians, 700,000 of whom live right here in British Columbia. With more than 100 types of arthritis including osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, lupus and gout — it is now the most costly chronic disease in Canada and the biggest factor in work disability and job loss. Arthritis Research Canada is committed to changing those statistics.

The Vancouver Hospice Society
In response to the critical need for additional hospice and palliative care beds in the Vancouver area, the Vancouver Hospice Society is raising $4.5 million to create a new freestanding hospice in our community, the first on the west side of Vancouver. Macdonald Realty Ltd. donated over $12,000 last year for this great cause.
BC Cancer Foundation
Macdonald Realty is pleased to have an ongoing partnership with BC Cancer Foundation. In the past we have donated over $15,000 to support the BC Cancer Foundation’s research into palliative care, pain and symptom management. Recently through our annual company golf tournament, Macdonald Realty donated funds for an early detection of Lung Cancer Research.
Canadian Cancer Society – Cops for Cancer
Vancouver Police Department assisted us with a prank by arresting Bill Dick, Managing Broker at a Vancouver office meeting. This was part of their Cops for Cancer fundraising activities. The office donation went to the Canadian Cancer Society to fund life-saving research and caring support programs to reduce impacts of cancer.
Community involvement is an important part of our business. Please contact the Managing Broker of your nearest Macdonald Realty office directly with any community events or charitable activities.
