The Whistler Community Foundation is the steward of money gifted to the community and provides grants in the areas of environment, arts & culture, social service and education.
Our vision is to be impactful in supporting the charities and organizations that address evolving community needs.
We are building a community where charities have long term sources of stable funding to support the full range of community life. As the only local option for creating a permanent personal legacy for your community, we help you to support the causes that you care about.
About WHISTLER COMMUNITY FOUNDATION
Founded in 1999, the Whistler Community Foundation manages donations as long term investments, grants money to local charities and engages the community through Whistler’s Vital Signs.
The Whistler Community Foundation gives donors the unique opportunity to create their own legacy for the community in the form of an endowment fund. Gifts to endowment funds are pooled and form assets for the community.
Earnings from these professionally managed assets are granted back into the community each year to registered charities who are working to improve the community.
We are a charitable public foundation, operated by members of our local community who live, work and raise their families here in the Sea to Sky region.
We bring people together to create opportunities for dialogue, learning, and partnership. Our knowledge of the community helps us to create maximum impact with our grant programs.
