Rachel Davis Fund
The Victoria Foundation is a community foundation and a registered charity accredited by Imagine Canada. By connecting visionary donors with causes that truly matter, we’re able to invest in people, projects and non-profit organizations that make our communities stronger – now and for the long-term. We’ve been doing so since 1936.
Rachel Davis Fund Established
Rachel’s mother, the actor Janet Wright, battled health issues for years until her passing in November of 2016. In 2017 Rachel’s father, Bruce, moved to Victoria to join the other members of the family. Recognizing the benefits and advantages of creating a donor-advised fund in the community where Rachel’s family now lives, in 2018 the Rachel Davis Fund was created at the Victoria Foundation with assets transferred from the former Rachel Davis Foundation.
The new donor-advised fund aims to support organizations and individuals in our community, with the specific goals of honouring outstanding acts of compassion in action by young Canadians, advancing self-esteem and empathy in youth, and supporting victims of violence and their families.
