You can support the causes closest to your heart without having to choose a specific charity. By directing your gift to a Focus Area, our experts and advisors will ensure your gift responds to the most relevant, pressing needs of the community — now and into the future.
Donate to Arts & Culture
Our communities are abundant with beauty, passion, expression and creativity, and your support keeps this vibrancy flourishing. Arts and culture give us ways to express ourselves and pass knowledge down through generations. Arts programs are crucial in promoting music, theatre, dance, literature, film, and more.
Donors like you can support thriving communities by starting a fund that supports our Arts and Culture Focus Area. These funds allow Vancouver Foundation’s arts and culture experts the flexibility to provide funding to the most compelling arts initiatives – strengthening BC communities for years to come.
Focus Areas are Guided by Community Advisors
When you support a Focus Area, you join a powerful force of like-minded donors and community advisors to make a profound impact on the causes you care about. Our Focus Areas fuel our grant programs. Each program also has its own team of community advisors who are all experts in their fields. This team reviews grant applications and directs your donation to the ones.
