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 Address BC Homelessness

Everyone deserves a safe and healthy home. The BC housing and shelter crisis is one of the most pressing issues in the country. Luckily, donors like you are making meaningful impacts in the lives of unhoused people and families.

Make an immediate impact by starting a fund that supports our Addressing Homelessness Focus Area. Through your generosity, the focus area experts at Vancouver Foundation will use your gift to support charities working to address the root causes of homelessness in the community — now and in the future.

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.
