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 Protect the BC Environment
Preserve and protect the planet for your children, grandchildren, and generations beyond.
Support the environment by giving to our Environmental Focus Area. When you start a fund that supports the Environmental Focus Area, the focus area experts at Vancouver Foundation direct your donation to the most impactful charities working for the environment. These charities are doing crucial work like combating climate change, protecting BC forests, and solving critical environmental issues.
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.
