Your Generosity.
Our Support.
Their Future.

The OSNS Legacy Foundation will secure the delivery of pediatric rehabilitation in the South Okanagan Similkameen by ensuring the financial stability of the OSNS Child Development Centre.

This would not be possible without our generous supporters. Thank you for helping us create a more sustainable OSNS, ensuring our little ones can get the treatment they need for years to come.

For over 40 years, OSNS has maximized the capacity of children.
The OSNS Legacy Foundation seeks to secure the future of pediatric rehabilitation services – and secure the future of our children.

Government plays an important role but falls short of providing necessary operating expenses. As a result, the Centre must spend a phenomenal amount of time, energy and resources to fundraise each year. The Legacy Foundation will alleviate this situation and allow the team to focus on treatment.

Philanthropy can secure life changing long term improvements for children. Quality Care and Treatment Excellence are about love – about the nexus of expertise and passion.

A donation to the OSNS Legacy Foundation will help address the existing financial inequity and secure vital programming for children.
