Since 1979, the West Vancouver Foundation has helped shape our community. Through donations and endowment funds, the foundation has supported many worthy causes and has helped bring donors together with other heritage, non-profit organizations and community projects. Scholarships and grants are also part of the giving process and many groups and individuals alike have them to thank for this generosity. Last week, at West Vancouver’s Capilano Golf and Country Club, the foundation held a special appreciation reception. Mayor Michael Smith started the evening off with the surprise announcement that he would be donating his recent council pay raise to the foundation (that amounts to about $9,000 a year). But the surprises didn’t stop there as foundation chair Gerry Humphries announced the installment of the new McLaren Family Trust – a $501,000 fund given by the family in memoriam of their mother. Congrats to all involved.
