Vancouver Foundation Magazine Fall 2016

We are pleased to release the Fall 2016 edition of the Vancouver Foundation Magazine, The Nature of Belonging.

Vancouver Foundation Magazine brings you stories of modern philanthropy. It features the people and organizations that are making a difference in communities across British Columbia. We tell the stories of grants (both large and small) that have had a dramatic impact on people's lives, and we profile the donors whose generosity has made these stories possible.

You can read the magazine here:

2016 Fresh Voices Awards – Nominate someone today!

The Fresh Voices Awards recognize the inspiration and leadership of immigrant and refugee youth in British Columbia and across Canada, working to advance social change based on themes and priorities including Immigration, School and English Language Learning, Family, Building Bridges and Working in Solidarity. These themes have been informed through ongoing engagement with immigrant and refugee youth and organizations and communities working in partnership with young people.

2016 Fresh Voices Forum

The 2016 Fresh Voices Forum is a unique opportunity for young people to speak directly to diverse stakeholders including government officials, service providers, community leaders and most importantly, other young people!

The goal of the forum is to bring newcomer young people, adults and decision-makers together in a respectful environment of listening and learning from each other. We want youth with diverse backgrounds and opinions, who want to make a difference in their communities, and who want to meet other youth and adults who share common interests and concerns.

Syrian Youth Refugee Consultation

"This was the first time in ISSofBC history that we brought together former refugee youth within their first year to Canada and asked them how their settlement experience has been going to date as well as gained their input into some newcomer youth related policy and program needs,” – ISSofBC Director of Settlement Services Chris Friesen.

Downtown Eastside Small Arts Grants - now including group projects

Vancouver Foundation, in partnership with the Carnegie Community Centre, is proud to announce the Downtown Eastside Small Arts Grants program is now accepting fall 2016 applications.

For many years, we’ve been working together to give downtown eastside artists the opportunity to advance their careers by supporting and showcasing their work. The program offers small grants of $500 up to $1,000 for artists who demonstrate a history of original art practice, and show a vital engagement with the downtown eastside community.

Small grants come to UBC!
