The Victoria Foundation is a community foundation and a registered charity accredited by Imagine Canada. By connecting visionary donors with causes that truly matter, we’re able to invest in people, projects and non-profit organizations that make our communities stronger – now and for the long-term. We’ve been doing so since 1936.
Operating under the distinguished patronage of Her Honour, The Honourable Judith Guichon, OBC, Lieutenant Governor of British Columbia, the Victoria Foundation is a registered Canadian charity* and the second oldest of Canada’s 191 community foundations. We manage charitable gifts from donors whose generosity allows us to create permanent, income-earning funds, which are distributed in the areas the donors wish to support.
In doing so, the Victoria Foundation helps charitable organizations succeed in building community resources in Victoria – and increasingly, throughout British Columbia and Canada. A gift to the Victoria Foundation makes a difference to the communities we serve now and in perpetuity.
