Community Engagement & Impact Committee

The Nanaimo Foundation works with community leaders and stakeholders to ensure that Foundation grants are purposefully and effectively targeted. The Foundation also engages with recognized advisors so as to continually learn from philanthropic organizations beyond Nanaimo. Capable community members generously volunteer their time and energy on our Board of Directors and on our various committees. Their knowledge and dedication help shape our work and ensure we remain in touch with the needs of the community.
