Micro & 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.

Micro Grants provide responsive support for smaller charitable initiatives that support the North Shore community. The grant is to be used for time limited projects or events that will benefit the community at large. Typically Micro Grant funding has been used for things such as unbudgeted marketing for an event, or other smaller expenses. 

Leadership Grants aim to foster peer learning, collaboration, and philanthropic growth for the creation of a healthy, vibrant, and livable community. By offering leadership grants, we allow staff and volunteers at charities that support the North Shore to take part in Capacity Building opportunities such as training or workshops.

The 2024 program is now open.

"Working together on a big project really inspired and energized the girls. It was a great example of teamwork and leadership, as they filled buckets with soil for others to carry and as the older girls helped the younger ones get the holes dug and the plants planted."
