We help our people stay connected to the communities they live and work in, by sponsoring local events and initiatives throughout British Columbia. Helping out locally, however we can.
Arthritis Research Canada
Macdonald Realty is proud to be the Presenting Sponsor of the 2021 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.

Canuck Place Children’s Hospice
Agents and staff from Macdonald Realty took the plunge in 2019 for a good cause with a polar bear swim during their annual holiday party. They set out with a $10,000 fundraising goal but surpassed all expectations by raising $25,000 for Canuck Place Children’s Hospice.
Canuck Place Children’s Hospice is BC’s pediatric palliative care provider for children with life-threatening illnesses and the families who love them. Their team of physicians, nurses, counsellors, therapists, staff, and volunteers provide medical respite care, pain and symptom management, end-of-life care, and counselling at no cost for the families who need their assistance.
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 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.
