Community Foundations bring together people who care about their communities. They facilitate philanthropy by partnering with donors to build permanent endowments and other funds from which they support community projects. Because community foundations focus on building permanent endowments, they are able to address long-term community challenges as well as immediate needs.
Who Are We?
Squamish Community Foundation provides a vehicle for attracting, managing and distributing donations within our community. This increases the amount of money available to charitable organizations and other eligible donees
The primary purpose of the Squamish Community Foundation is to pool donations in a perpetual endowment fund that earns income. The capital of such funds is managed and monitored by the board of directors. Grants are made from the income earned on the endowment. This mechanism creates a permanent source of funding.
We manage over $400,000 dollars in donor funds and distribute the income to registered charities for community projects. Please take a moment to browse through our website for more information about the Squamish Community Foundation and how you can help support many worthwhile community groups.
