Vibrant and Caring Community Fund
The Victoria Foundation’s vision is a vibrant, caring community for all.
Do you value the local programs, services and organizations that make our region special? Things like seniors care and art classes for kids … beach cleanups and local theatre… music programs, cultural events, youth services and food access programs. All of these, and many more, are run by a vibrant mixture of charitable organizations that call Greater Victoria home, just like you.
The Vibrant and Caring Community Fund supports projects, programs and services like these that are among the most important in our community. Many donors choose to make their gifts to this Fund, allowing the Foundation to proactively respond to critical needs as they arise.
The purpose of the Vibrant and Caring Community Fund is to support our region’s areas of greatest need. Currently, depending on the continuing or new effects of the COVID-19 pandemic, this Fund will provide grants through the lens of recovery efforts and building resilience for our local charities for the short and long-term.
