About the BOWEN ISLAND COMMUNITY FOUNDATION
The Bowen Island Community Foundation was established by and for the community in 2002 with the aim of building and managing endowment funds to support the artistic, cultural, educational, recreational and social well-being of residents on Bowen Island. Our endowment funds include the main Bowen Island Community Impact Fund and named funds that support specific community projects (arts, the environment, seniors) and post-secondary study. Our funds grow through donations large and small, and through bequests — $1,200,000 and growing.
The Foundation distributes the interest earned from the endowment funds back to Bowen Island to help build a more vibrant, sustainable community. As each endowment fund grows, so does our ability to give money to important local projects. Since we started making grants in 2004, we have granted back to Bowen Island over $600,000.
