About the Vancouver Foundation
We take a broad approach to our work. Each year we fund hundreds of community projects in a wide array of fields: arts and culture, education, environment, community health, children and family issues, social development, disability, and youth issues.
We also have two areas where we focus additional energy and resources: addressing youth homelessness, and supporting project that strengthen people’s connections and engagement in their community.
We don’t do this work alone. We build community by working with hundreds of caring citizens who donate to us or set up endowment funds with our Foundation. (An endowment fund is like a savings account but dedicated to philanthropy. Each year a portion of the interest generated on the Fund is used to support innovative, community projects).
