About the Kristian Domingo Foundation

Our Mission

To inspire the youth of today to overcome their adversities in the pursuit of their dreams.

We help the youth of today by assisting with

Financial Assistance

Providing financial assistance through awards and scholarships to graduating high school students that have faced and overcome adversity in their lives to pursue their dreams.

Institutional Care

Supporting the institutions that care for adolescents and young adults facing significant challenges in their lives.

Institutional Support

Assisting institutions in developing programs to aid adolescents and young adults in receiving proper care and treatment support for their illnesses.

#11 forever Award

Awarded annually at various schools, the #11Forever Award is given to students who have shown qualities of leadership, faith and pursuit of excellence by inspiring others within the community. These individuals are the link to create a team environment where everyone can combine their efforts to excel together.

BC Cancer Foundation

As the largest organization funding cancer research in BC, the BC Cancer Foundation is working towards a world without cancer. The BC Cancer Foundation, in collaboration with Children’s Hospital, is developing an AYA Program to address a current gap between pediatric care and adult care. Kristian received care from both the BC Cancer Clinic and Children’s Hospital. While he received exceptional care from both institutions, he was not comfortable in either. The AYA Program will hopefully improve the quality of care, and life, for adolescents and young adults facing cancer.

Canuck Place — Children’s Hospice

Canuck Place is a children’s hospice, a place of comfort and compassion for children and their families where they could receive care and support while allowing them to continue cherishing each moment together. In his brief stay at Canuck Place, Kristian met many of the wonderful staff, and his family appreciated all the love, kindness and care Kristian received. They provide exceptional care for all the children and their families while maintaining an environment that allows them to experience comfort, laughter and love during difficult times.

D2D Destiny

Kristian Domingo Foundation has partnered with D2D Destiny, e-Philanthropic store where you will find generously donated items for purchase. Through the sale of these donations, money raised may fund charities like ours to help young people with adversity.

About Kristian Domingo

Kristian spent 13 years of his short life at Vancouver College. At the end of his time there, he would develop a special bond with the school that helped shape him to be the inspiring individual that he was. He had faced and overcome adversity during his junior and senior years at VC and the Foundation provides an award each year to a graduating student who has overcome their own adversity and has demonstrated qualities similar to Kristian’s.

Kristian’s journey in his final weeks brought him to Canuck Place Children’s Hospice, a place he initially feared, but in the end was instrumental to his well-being and comfort. The support, care, compassion and love he received at Canuck Place was truly a blessing, and the Foundation will provide support to this hospice for all the beautiful children they care for.

Kristian’s care began at BC Cancer Agency, and though successful at the beginning, needed to collaborate with BC Children’s Hospital for his continued care. Kristian experienced care from both the adult world and the pediatric world, and was not completely comfortable in either. The Foundation will provide assistance for the development of programs that would provide care and support for the unique needs of adolescents and young adults facing similar challenges in their lives.

The Kristian Domingo Foundation will also follow research in cancer treatments, particularly with the cancer that took Kristian’s life, rhabdomyosarcoma; and where possible, will provide financial assistance to available research programs.
