Two groups make Vancouver Foundation grants to their communities
Neighourhood Small Grants and Youth Philanthropy Council
The Youth Philanthropy Council and South Burnaby Neighbourhood House know their communities. Vancouver Foundation entrusts them with selecting projects to fund in their communities, because of connections and understanding of the issues.
The Youth Philanthropy Council reviews applications from other youth organizations around Vancouver, and grants Vancouver Foundation funding for everything from skate parks to the environment to theatre groups.
South Burnaby Neighborhood House funds community improvement projects and block parties as part of Vancouver Foundation’s Neighborhood Small Grants Program.
For both groups it is clear that just a small amount of funding can make great ideas in the community come true.
