Donating is a great way to both give back to your community and leave a lasting legacy. Whether you intend to donate in honour of a loved one or support a community initiative you’re personally passionate about, let us help you create a personalized charitable giving plan that represents your vision and values. Choose your own local cause to fund or ask our Board of Directors to identify a non-profit on your behalf. There are a number of ways to give as an individual:
Set Up an Endowment Fund
There are several types of endowment funds available through the Squamish Community Foundation. We invite you to learn more about the our funds below, then reach out to the donor services team at email@example.com to discuss your options. We would love to build a relationship with you.
Endowed funds are invested in perpetuity and grants are made from the income earned on the endowment.
Field of Interest Funds
Often donor advised, some Endowed Funds have a specific field of interest to which the funds can be applied.
Flow Through Funds
From time to time, the SCF receives flow through donations, which are dispersed in a short period of time for a specific purpose.
Named Funds and Donor Advised Funds
We have established guidelines and minimum recommended funding thresholds to establish a named endowment fund.
We would be happy to explain any of these fund types and advise you on what particular fund best suits your giving needs.
