The Victoria Foundation
Connecting people who care with causes that matter.
Founded in 1936, the Victoria Foundation is Canada’s second oldest community foundation. The Victoria Foundation provides leadership by inspiring giving, by thoughtfully caring for the assets entrusted to us and by investing in people, ideas and activities that strengthen our communities.
Over the last seven decades we have granted over $130 million to charitable organizations in Victoria and across the province of British Columbia.
What inspires us, year after year, is the opportunity to make a difference in virtually every aspect of community life. We focus on granting around five key areas where we believe we can have the greatest impact:
- Arts, Culture and Heritage
- Community Services
- Health and Recreation
