Endowment Fund

Investing in the future of our city

Vancouver Heritage Foundation aims to build a $3 million endowment fund to provide long-term stable support for programs and activities that promote the conservation of heritage buildings and sites in our city. So far, over $1.53 million is invested for endowment purposes (December 31, 2021), with Vancouver Foundation and with Odlum Brown Limited.

If you would like to find out more about how you can help us achieve our Endowment Fund goal by making a gift, we would be delighted to hear from you. Please call Laura Carey, Executive Director at 604 264 9642 or email.

An endowment gift is invested and the annual interest generated is used to support VHF’s activities. The principal remains untouched in perpetuity, creating a lasting legacy. An endowment gift can be made during your lifetime in your own name or the name of a loved one, or it can be made through a gift in your will.

A charitable donation tax receipt will be issued to you for the maximum allowed according to CRA regulations.

Thank you to our generous endowment fund donors
