The West Vancouver Foundation has been committed to a vibrant, healthy, caring community since 1979. By connecting the generosity and aspirations of donors with the people and organizations that want to make a change, the Foundation works to strengthen the community for now and well into the future.

Due to the retirement of a successful CEO who, along with her team, has increased the profile and impact of the organization and increased funds under management, an opportunity exists for a successful and thoughtful leader to steward the organization in this next phase of its evolution.
