In February 2013, the Victoria Foundation launched two new initiatives that we hope will change the face of philanthropy in Victoria, and make it easier for non-profit organizations to do business.
Vital Loans, in partnership with Island Savings, provide financial support in the form of short-term loans to charities on southern Vancouver Island and the Gulf Islands. Through this partnership, loan opportunities can be evaluated like never before — a first for the islands.
Victoria's Community Knowledge Centre is an online platform; it allows users to learn about the innovative and effective solutions that local organizations are undertaking to address issues raised in Victoria's Vital Signs® report. Explore your community and connect with programs and projects like never before.
