As the founding and largest endowment, the Envision Financial Community Endowment supports community projects throughout the Fraser Valley and in Kitimat. Since 1998, the endowment has provided 391 grants totaling over $4.6 million in grant funding.
The First West Foundation is pleased to announce the 2020 recipients of the Envision Financial Community Endowment Grants with $420,486 headed to 33 different organizations through two funding streams: resilient and resourceful (R&R) and supporting the social services sector (4S).
This year grants in the Envision region are primarily for projects and programming aimed at those who are affected by a wide range of socio-economic factors (R&R - resilient & resourceful). Additionally, recognizing the opportunity to strengthen the important work being done in the social services sector, grants have also been provided to support organizational development initiatives such as leadership training and workshops to help improve the skills and capacity of staff, volunteers and organizations (4S - strengthening the social services sector).
