Our mission is to work with individuals and organizations to help build a society that's inclusive, just, and sustainable. Using our experience, community knowledge, and Vancity network, we will work with you to develop a giving strategy that’s right for you and helps you to invest in people & organizations – big and small – that are making a difference.
Our focus areas include affordable housing, homelessness and social and economic innovation through projects like BC Rent Bank, Reaching Home, Living Wage for Families, Affordable Community Housing Program + Accelerator Fund and 312 Main.
Working with us to channel your charitable giving comes with its own set of unique advantages.
Here are just a few reasons to work with us:
Experience and Values
Having access to the services, expertise, and network of Vancity means we’re able to build on the cooperative values and reputation of a legendary local institution, and join together to create even greater positive change in the community.
Ethical & Impact Investing
When you work with us, you can take tremendous comfort knowing your dollars are invested ethically to achieve both financial and social returns.
Setting up a Donor Advised Fund is simpler than establishing a separate charitable foundation or dealing with individual charities. We take care of all the paperwork and administrative details.
Whether you establish a Donor Advised Fund, for short-term impact or a long-term legacy, or partner with us directly, we’ll work with you to contribute to the causes you care about.
Vancity Community Foundation hosts a wide range of Donor Advised Funds that support organizations and individuals in realizing their vision for community impact.
