For Professional Advisors

By partnering with Vancouver Foundation, professional advisors like you can help your clients fulfill their charitable goals. We work with your clients to set up an endowment fund – a permanent investment of capital that benefits the community in perpetuity and creates a personal or family legacy. Only the fund’s income is granted out so the fund keeps on giving year after year.

We're here to help

At Vancouver Foundation your clients have the flexibility to shape their own charitable giving to reflect their personal goals and desires. Whether they want to address an urgent need in the community, memorialize a loved one, or help out a charity with a project, we have a giving option to help them make an impact and improve the lives of others in the community. 

And we make setting up a charitable fund as simple and convenient as possible. That’s why we offer a variety of different fund types including Donor Advised Funds and Designated Funds. Vancouver Foundation also offers other types of funds such as funds for charitable agencies and corporations. Funds can usually be set up within a day, and for just $10,000 (or $1,000 to start up). Please contact us to learn more. We've also developed a helpful donation calculator to assist your clients.
