Give Where You Live Grants

A community giving campaign to support local charities.

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
  • Environment
  • Health, Wellness and Safety
  • Sport & Recreation
  • Youth and Education

Please take a moment to reflect on your application before submitting it. As this is a community-giving campaign, ensure either your organization or your project will resonate with the public and they will want to support your needs. If your purpose or project is limited or complicated, it may be better suited for our Community Grants program.
