The Allen and Loreen Vandekerkhove Family Foundation

Serving the community since 1989

Mission Statement

The Allen and Loreen Vandekerkhove Family Foundation's mission statement is fairly simple. They have a basic criteria for gifting. To be able to submit a grant request your organization has to meet these steps.

  • Your organization has to be a Canadian registered charitable organization in good standing.
  • It can have a national affiliate but the grant has to be guaranteed to stay locally.
  • You should be on Vancouver Island or the Gulf Islands.
  • Grassroots
  • Community based.
  • Large volunteer core.
  • Focused on the community needs.

If you feel your charitable organization qualifies then you have to include in your request the following:

  • Who you are and what you do.
  • Your CRA registered charitable number.
  • The most recent minutes, budget and financial statement.
  • The cover letter for your request for the grant amount and what it will be used for.

Your request will then be reviewed to see if it qualifies to be placed on the agenda for the next board meeting. At that point all requests that have made the agenda will be voted on by the board. The board meets twice a year, in late spring and early fall.

The Allen and Loreen Vandekerkhove Family Foundation will contact you as to the outcome of your grant request via email.
