BC Water Sustainability Endowment Fund
Proceeds from the inaugural Land Awards Gala in 2010 - in addition to a contribution from the Foundation - launched our BC Water Sustainability Endowment Fund, which is held by the Vancouver Foundation. Any proceeds from subsequent galas will be added to the charitable fund.
The purpose of the fund is to support water sustainability projects in BC. From 2011-2013, we awarded one $3,000 grant per year to support non-profit activities in water sustainability. Grant recipients were (view linked videos):
- 2011 - Langley Environmental Partners Society: Bertrand Watershed Education Team (B-WET)
- 2012 - Stream of Dreams Murals Society: Mapping Where We Live (Byrne Creek Watershed)
- 2013 - City of Dawson Creek: Dawson Creek Watershed Awareness Project
Donations to the fund may be made via the Vancouver Foundation.
