02Why Donate to SPCF?

The Saanich Peninsula Community Foundation is a permanent community endowment fund that grows through your support and provides funding to local non-profit charitable organizations. When you give to the endowment, you are helping to meet the needs of our community today, and for years to come. Your gift supports the Saanich Peninsula in perpetuity.

03What Happens to My Donations?

Your donation is invested in an endowment fund held at the Victoria Foundation.  This fund – the principal – is set aside and permanently held. Only the returns from the fund are spent, not the principal that anchors the endowment. A Board of respected volunteers dedicated to Saanich Peninsula initiatives governs the Foundation.

The grants are disbursed on an annual basis. Grants from these funds support a wide range of community endeavours on the Saanich Peninsula including:

  • education
  • welfare
  • culture
  • environment
  • health & recreation

You can make a donation to the Saanich Peninsula Community Foundation at any time.
Your donation cheque should be made payable to The Victoria Foundation, with ‘Saanich Peninsula Community Foundation Fund’ in the memo line.

Mail to: The Saanich Peninsula Community Foundation c/o 2377 Bevan Ave Unit #201 Sidney, BC V8L 4M9.
