Who we are


The West Vancouver Community Foundation is a reflection of the great value that individuals, families and businesses place on West Vancouver, its heritage, its people and its communities.


What we do

Since 1979, when the Foundation was established, donors have helped to create a charitable endowment of over ten million dollars, the income from which supports non-profit organizations, community projects and scholarships, today and into the future.  More than one million dollars has been contributed to projects, primarily those that support health, education, the arts, social services and West Vancouver's physical environment.

West Vancouver's 2016 Vital Signs - Now Available

Launch Date - Tuesday, October 4th 2016.


This Vital Signs Report is intended to help us better appreciate who lives here and how well their needs are being met, from the most basic needs—sustenance, shelter, health, safety—to those that give quality to life, such as places and opportunities to play, learn and create.

It presents a picture of quality-of-life using a wide range of national data and local research - community knowledge that will help the Foundation decide where to focus attention and resources to have the greatest impact.
