This year, 2023, the Squamish Community Foundation (SCF) is celebrating 20 years of serving Squamish charities, non-profits, students, and neighbourhoods.

The SCF began in 2003 when a group of founding donors had the insight and community commitment to create the foundation and sponsor its growth. The initial donations of 17 donors seeded the Smart and Caring Endowment Fund – our most flexible fund which allows the SCF to respond to some of Squamish’s most urgent needs and vulnerable people through Annual Grants.

A phenomenal amount of positive action has taken place over the last 20 years thanks to the generous contributions from our donors and the work of so many dedicated community organizations. In that time, we have helped establish 14 Endowment Funds and administered over $1,000,000 in community grants to a variety of causes including health, environment, youth, music and arts, and more.

Help us reach our goal!

This year we strive to boost donations to the Smart and Caring Fund so we can continue to best serve the community. Our goal, 20 years after the creation of SCF, is to raise $220,000 for this founding fund. If achieved, this would triple our impact in community grants.

Whether you’re a regular or first-time donor, we welcome and appreciate any contributions to help us reach our goal.

Donate here via Canada Helps, and select the ‘Smart and Caring Fund’. You can also donate via cash, cheque or e-transfer. Visit our website for details.

Let’s Celebrate

To honour this exciting milestone, the SCF is hosting a Squamish Trivia Night on Friday October 20th. We are inviting 20 teams to register, raise funds for a great cause, and enjoy a night of camaraderie and skill testing fun. Bevies and appies are included.
