Thank you for choosing to give to one of the funds held at the Victoria Foundation.

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.

Thank you to those who contributed a total of $117,773 to the Blue Heron Advisory Fund for Kids before May 14th. Your gift will be matched and will support applicants of Victoria Foundation’s Community Grants Program. Visit our website in June to learn which organizations received funding!

Your Gift Can Still be Matched!

The Blue Heron Advisory Group cares deeply about the well-being of children in our community. A financial management group of CIBC Wood Gundy, the Blue Heron Advisory balances their office responsibilities with a strong commitment to family life and supporting activities in the broader community. Donate to the Blue Heron Fund for Kids and every dollar will be matched up to $250,000!

Your gift to the fund will have twice the impact and will ensure that children and their families have access to the resources they need to thrive. All money raised through the fund will be distributed through Victoria Foundation’s trusted Community Grants Program. Last year, the Community Grants Program funded over 20 local community organizations that primarily serve the emotional and physical needs of children. This year, grants from the Blue Heron Fund for Kids will help us enhance funding to qualified applicants who deliver activities for kids in the areas of art and music therapy programs, access to food, literacy programs, resources for parents, and much more.
