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 Support BC Youth

Youth are our future. Unfortunately, not all young people have the same opportunities. Young people also often have difficulty being accepted and valued as contributing members of society. But it doesn’t have to be this way.

Donors like you can help BC youth get a strong start in life by creating a fund or making a donation that supports our Youth Focus Area to support generations of youth for years to come.

Through your generosity, the focus area experts at Vancouver Foundation can direct your gift to charities for youth. These charities empower BC youth to actively participate in their communities, creating a more just and equitable 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.
