TOGETHER OUR IMPACT IS GROWING
At the West Vancouver Community Foundation, we are propelled by the collective generosity of nearly 450 donors. In 2017, our donors recommended $500,000 in grants to support more than 51 charitable organizations in our community.
As more residents are establishing funds to plan their giving, their impact on the charitable sector has grown. As donors look to increase their local impact through giving, tools like the Foundation's Vital Signs reports help to ensure that their gifts are in response to emerging issues and events.
