Vancouver Foundation works to create healthy, vibrant, and livable communities by supporting BC charities.

Vancouver Foundation works on the lands of Indigenous nations throughout colonial British Columbia. Our office is on the unceded, ancestral, and traditional territory of the xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam), Sḵwx̱wú7mesh (Squamish), and Sel̓íl̓witulh (Tsleil-Waututh) peoples.

What We Do

Vancouver Foundation is inspired by community and works to benefit community. We connect generous donors with the energy, time, and ideas of inspired people across British Columbia. Together, we’ve been making meaningful, lasting impacts by supporting charities in BC since 1943. Our goal is to harness the gifts of donations and other resources as well as the community’s wealth of ideas and energy to build a lasting legacy.
