Create a Fund with Vancouver Foundation

At Vancouver Foundation, your giving lasts forever.

With Vancouver Foundation it's possible to give back to your community now, and leave a legacy for the future as well. 

Donor Advised Funds are the most popular way to give at Vancouver Foundation. A Donor Advised Fund enables you to establish a charitable endowment fund, receive a donation tax receipt and then recommend grants over time. A personally named fund can be created with a gift of $10,000 (or $1,000 to start-up) and will be customized to meet your charitable objectives.

Grants can be made to any registered Canadian charity, or any of our Charitable Causes. Through our Charitable Causes, our volunteer advisors will evaluate hundreds of grant applications annually on your behalf, ensuring your granting dollars will have the most impact. Choose from these Charitable Causes: Community Impact · Addressing Homelessness · Animal Welfare · Arts & Culture · Children & Families · Education · Environment · Health · Social Services · Youth

You also have options for the fund’s long-term planning after your passing. You can appoint a friend or family member as the Successor Fund Advisor, or ask Vancouver Foundation to carry out long term support for specific charities or our Charitable Causes.
