Showing our appreciation to our valued legacy donors
As a legacy donor, thank you for your generosity with invitations to our annual Legacy Donor Appreciation Events. Here we thoughtfully curate events that allow donors to connect directly with the positive impact being made in the community – and you get the chance to connect with other like-minded donors. Our events take place at different venues around the city, allowing us to showcase diverse community partners, grantees, and funded projects.
If you have included a future gift to Vancouver Foundation, let us know so we can invite you to a future event:
