Building Community Action Together
Community Action Funds allow you to give confidently to the causes that matter to you.
Whether your passion is to support the arts, health-related issues, the environment, social justice or one of the many other cause areas in our community, when you make a gift to a Community Action Fund, you can have confidence that your gift will be put to the highest and best use.
Funds will be distributed from each of the Community Action Funds on a regular basis throughout the year, to a wide range of vital projects, programs and initiatives in the community, including the strategic initiatives of the Victoria Foundation that foster long-term community change. Priorities will be set by drawing upon the Victoria Foundation’s strong connection to community, and our history of addressing the greatest needs, opportunities and innovations within each of the fund areas. Although the broad causes will remain constant, the priorities within them will change over time, ensuring that your gift can adapt and meet the needs of our community.
There are two ways your contribution can support the Community Action Funds:
- Give to the broader Vibrant and Caring Community Fund allowing the Foundation to respond to critical needs as they arise.
- Concentrate your gift on one or more of the specific cause areas. Each Community Action Fund offers you the opportunity to focus your philanthropy on one of the complex issues faced by our community.
