Getting started is easy.
Join other local businesses that have chosen the Victoria Foundation as their partner in philanthropy to take advantage of the many benefits. We can:
- Create a fund in your company’s name.
- Help you engage your employees in building the fund.
- Pool the gifts to your fund and invest them in our common trust to reduce risk and increase returns.
- Take care of all “back office” functions, including accepting gifts (online, securities, cheques, estate planning); receipting donations; preparing thank you letters to donors; and reporting to you through fund statements.
- Help you to choose and grant to any Canadian charity of your choice.
- Ensure impact stewardship reports are received from grant recipients and shared with you.
- Help you and your staff learn about community needs and opportunities, including access to our Community Knowledge Centre online platform.
- Help to raise awareness about your philanthropy and the collective impact of your support, both with the public and with your employees.
