Vancouver Foundation Turns 65
Vancouver Foundation is 65 years young this year, and held a party to celebrate the event in September, attended by over 400 people.
In 1943, the Foundation started with one woman’s gift. Alice McKay donated $1000 and WJ VanDusen and his friends matched the funds.
Now thousands of success stories have grown from that $1000. Vancouver Foundation supports a broad spectrum of issues and areas in the community, and this year launched a venture to tackle youth homelessness.
The 65th was both an opportunity to celebrate what is being done and an opportunity to make our community aware about what they can do to make a difference. We all have something to give.
