Leadership Grants


West Vancouver Foundation supports charitable organizations working to create and sustain a healthy and vibrant West Vancouver, where everyone is valued, contributes and feels they belong.

Leadership Grants support capacity building and impact leadership for individuals and organizations doing charitable work. We will support a wide range of learning opportunities, including (but not limited to) retreats, workshops, conferences, and seminars.


Up to $1,000


Check back in mid January for more information.


An organization is eligible to apply if it serves the West Vancouver community and is a registered charity or qualified donee with the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA).

An organization that is not a registered charity wishing to apply for funding from the Foundation may consider developing a formal and genuine partnership with a registered charity whose mandate is similar. The registered charity would apply for funds for the proposed project and receive the funds on behalf of the partner. The CRA requires this relationship to be set out in writing, signed by the charity and organization doing charitable work. Click here to visit CRA’s website for more details.


Leadership Grants aim to support staff and Board Members working for non-profits that serve the West Vancouver community. Note that multi-year funding is not available at this time.

Eligible Initiatives support a wide range of learning opportunities include all costs associated with retreats, workshops, conferences, and seminars.

Expenses incurred before the date of grant approval are ineligible.
