Nanaimo Foundation is YOUR community foundation.

We inspire giving, support our local charitable sector, and build permanent endowments to address the current and future needs of our community.

We help donors simplify and enhance their charitable giving in Nanaimo and across Canada. We are connected to our community, and help amplify the impact of donations of all sizes through collaboration and strategic granting.

We work with donors to build their own legacies, and carry on their charitable wishes in perpetuity.

At Nanaimo Foundation we steward the gifts of energy, ideas, time, and money to make meaningful and lasting impacts in our community.

We respectfully acknowledge and are grateful to work on the beautiful unceded territories of the Snaw-naw-as, Snuneymuxw and Stz’uminus First Nations.
