Quadra Island Foundation

We are a public, charitable foundation established to support a more resilient and self-reliant community.

A key part of the foundation’s work is collaborating with groups and individuals to encourage donations (often through wills and estates) as part of a permanent fund. Income generated from ethically-sourced investments is distributed as grants to eligible charities and activities to enhance community quality of life and to protect our natural environment.

As a registered charity, the foundation provides tax receipts for donations.

The local all-volunteer board of directors and community-based grant committee engages community members to identify local needs and to inspire generosity to meet those needs. The grants committee reviews funding applications and advises the board on how best to support community projects.
