The income provides grants to local non-profit projects and scholarships to local graduating high school students. The Foundation looks to increase its endowment and use the interest earned to fund local projects.

Every year, the Foundation's grant committee accepts applications for funding. Grants are given to worthy community programs or not-for-profit organizations with priority given to projects where the emphasis is on health, education, the arts, social services and the improvement of West Vancouver's physical environment.
