Our Work

We listen to donors, and help them find the most effective ways to give. We support charities and other organizations across BC through a range of grants. We also address priority issues through our initiatives, such as youth engagement, knowledge & learning, partnerships, and connections and community engagements – all of which serve to strengthen the basic fabric of our communities.

How We Work

Vancouver Foundation is Community Inspired. We have been invested in BC since 1943. Our mission is to build healthy, vibrant, and livable communities across British Columbia.

We Convene

We connect diverse communities around common concerns,
creating space and respecting rights, so that we understand and value lived experiences.

We Listen

We hear the wisdom of  BC communities, donors, non-profit partners, expert advisers, and neighbours, relying on them to tell us how things could be better, and what needs to change.

We Empower

We spark community action by connecting ideas with the money, energy and expertise they need to flourish, inspiring immediate change, and meaningful long-term impact.

We Amplify

We celebrate the strength, resiliency and creativity of diverse voices. We lift up the passionate work of non-profits
because their inspiration invigorates our communities.
