Vancouver Foundation is pleased to announce the launch of LEVEL, our new youth engagement initiative. This new initiative will seek to level the playing field by empowering young Indigenous and racialized immigrant and refugee leaders to amplify their voices in matters important to them and to bring new ideas and fresh perspectives to shape policy and systems.
Vancouver Foundation's Community Causes Learning Series seeks to inform and inspire on a variety of community issues. Through storytelling and site visit tours, we are honoured to showcase Vancouver Foundation's funding partnerships with charities.
Vancouver Foundation is turning 75 this year. It’s a big milestone — and we want to celebrate with people like you who have been part of our journey over the years. That's why this September 13th, we’re inviting everyone across BC to gather together, share some food in your homes and communities, and talk about what’s on your mind.

We've just released our latest edition of Vancouver Foundation magazine.

In February, we shared the news that Vancouver Foundation is enhancing the way we respond to community needs by evolving our current Field of Interest Grants to two new grant programs: Participatory Action Research Grants and Systems Change Grants.
In May, we will release new Program Guidelines. The new guidelines will allow grant applicants to review our funding criteria in advance – well before we open both grant programs for application in July.
