    Feature Funder: Vancouver Foundation (apply now for Fall 2013) 

    Multiple funding opportunities here!Howdy Funds Fans!  It has been a while since I’ve featured a funder and the Vancouver Foundation is certainly an excellent candidate.

    The Vancouver Foundation (VF) is passionate about community. Everything they do is designed to help build more vibrant, healthy and resilient communities across B.C.  They accomplish their work by harnessing the gifts of energy, ideas, time, and money of caring residents to make meaningful and lasting impacts. VF is Canada’s largest community foundation and they’ve been investing in B.C. communities since 1943.

    With a very broad approach to funding, VF recognizes that communities are complex and that many things are needed to make them the best they can be.  Every year, VF funds hundreds of innovative projects – large and small – in areas such as arts and culture, education, children and youth issues, environment, animal welfare, community health, and social development.  Although Vancouver Foundation is a broad funder, they also have two specific areas of focus for the next few years; youth homelessness and the needs of at-risk youth, particularly those who are coming out of the foster care system.

    For VF’s Fall 2013 round of funding, LOI’s are due by July 26, 2013  4:30 p.m. for the following project streams:

    • Arts and Culture : The purpose of the Arts and Culture Advisory Committee is to make grants to support and encourage the growth and sustained presence of excellence in arts and cultural activities among diverse cultural communities throughout British Columbia.
    • Children, Youth and Families :  These grants invest in strategies that offer strong potential to advance innovations in programs and initiatives that increase the health, well-being and resilience of children, youth and families in British Columbia.
    • Disability Supports for Employment Fund : These grants are available to assist eligible organizations throughout BC who are working to increase employment opportunities and the overall rate of employment for persons with disabilities in their communities. DSEF considers “employment” to mean the full participation of people with disabilities as employees, and/or those activities which may result in employment for them.
    • Education : These grants enhance the quality of, and access to, education and lifelong learning opportunities for all British Columbians.
    • Environment : Freshwater – VF is interested in strategies that strive for the long-term sustainability, protection and resilience of water quality and flows.Habitat Protection and Conservation – VF is interested in strategies that offer opportunities for broad community participation and engagement in development of solutions, whether in marine or land-based ecosystems.
    • Health and Medical Education/Research : VF provides grants that support initiatives that ensure British Columbians are involved in advancing the health equity of their own communities. These research grants allow researchers and non-profit organizations to undertake relevant research collaboratively at the community level.
    • Health and Social Development : Health and Social Development grants support projects that enhance the capacity of adults, families and communities to create healthy, caring, safe and supportive environments for all.
    • Greenest City Community Grants : The City of Vancouver and Vancouver Foundation have teamed up to help make Vancouver the greenest city by 2020. They’ve created the Greenest City Fund – a four-year, $2 million fund that will support community-led green projects.

    There it is, folks.  Go and get it!  Sign up on the right to receive blog updates to your in-box.
