Every day, individuals in BC’s hospitality industry serve you. They are your baristas, concierges, hotel staff, cooks, winery and brewery workers, waiters, bartenders and wine sales people. While providing hospitality can be rewarding, most jobs in the industry are part-time with minimal benefits.
Help when they most need it
The British Columbia Hospitality Foundation is a charity that raises funds to support those in the hospitality industry facing financial crisis due to a health issue. Each year hundreds of hospitality workers across BC face financial challenges and have no one else to turn to. The BCHF helps them when all other options have been exhausted.
Identifying future leaders
The BCHF offers scholarship programs to foster the development of the next generation of workers and industry leaders.These scholarships are awarded to students enrolled in hospitality, culinary, sommelier, beverage and other hospitality-related programs in BC.
The hospitality industry’s charity
The BCHF is compassionate, person-centered, and localized to BC. In its practices, BCHF seeks to be sustainable and transparent to its community, the hospitality related industries.
