Talking with your clients about philanthropy

Let us help you, help your client. 

Vancouver Foundation provides a convenient and flexible way for our clients to realize their philanthropic goals.

With 84%* of Canadians contributing to charity on an annual basis, charitable giving is becoming an increasingly important part of your client’s overall financial and estate planning requirements. That’s why discussing philanthropy is more important than ever. And when you discuss philanthropy with your clients, you’ll not only have an opportunity to build a closer relationship, you’ll learn about their passions and interests as well as their vision for a better tomorrow.(*Source: Statistics Canada) 

A growing number of professional advisors are partnering with Vancouver Foundation because we provide an opportunity to talk about philanthropy, without any bias for particular charities. Unlike most charities that support a specific cause or issue, our mandate is to serve donors and support the entire charitable sector in British Columbia.

Through Vancouver Foundation, your client can learn about community needs and create a fund that is customized to their interests. With extensive expertise in investments and effective grant making, Vancouver Foundation serves as a conduit for your client’s philanthropy.
