Past Sponsors

Coast Capital Savings

Every year, Coast Capital Savings invests 7% of our pre-tax profits towards local community causes. Since 2000, that’s more than $65 million.

Because youth face many challenges on their journey to independence, Coast Capital Savings strategically invests and works alongside our community partners to break down many of the barriers that young people face.

Vancouver Foundation

Vancouver Foundation’s purpose is to bring together community assets to address current and emerging community needs. To do this we take a broad view of philanthropy: we recognize that raising funds to tackle an issue is only part of any solution. We also engage citizens, organizations and governments, and invite them to work together and contribute their time, ideas, expertise and energy to an issue. We believe this is the most meaningful and effective way to make lasting improvements.
