Make an Impact

As a Community Foundation connected to Vancity, we have been working to support local organizations and donors to create impact since 1989. Our history of working in community and with Vancity means we are uniquely positioned to bring the best combination of people, expertise, and financial tools to make the most impactful projects happen. We invite you to partner with us to create change through our Social Enterprise, Social Purpose Real Estate programs or to work with us in the areas of Social Justice, Economic Inclusion, and Environmental Sustainability.
