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.
The West Vancouver Foundation’s (WVF) Give Where You Live (GWYL) campaign is a community giving program that creates an opportunity for individuals to learn more about local charity programs and donate to support those programs. If selected to participate in the campaign, community donations will be matched by existing WVF Funds up to $10,000. There is no guarantee as to how much will be raised and much of the success will be influenced by the ability of participating organizations to promote the campaign to their audience.
7-10 projects will be selected to participate in this year’s campaign, from the below Fields of Interest:
- Arts, Culture and Heritage
- Health, Wellness and Safety
- Sport & Recreation
- Youth and Education
Requests can be made for $5,000 – $100,000.
Donations made by the public, up to $10,000, will be matched by one of the WVF funds. I.e. if your program receives $7,500 in donations, through our portal, a $7,500 match will also be given for a total of $15,000 (less processing fee).
