Our work allows us to invest in local charities and create a community where everyone’s needs are met. We focus on our city’s greatest needs and opportunities through our philanthropy, grants, and leadership.

Our message is simple. We ask the people and businesses of PoCo to invest in their community. The PoCo Community Foundation takes a group of individuals, linked only by the place they live or work, to a group of people with the common goal of a community in which everyone’s needs are met, where we are connected and supported. As a public foundation, we help individuals, families & businesses to fulfill their philanthropic wishes. We are local. We are dedicated to the community. We believe in the power of community.

Our Impact

PoCo Community Foundation helps donors create the legacy they want and is a catalyst for change in the community. We offer donors powerful and diverse opportunities to drive positive change through the broadest possible range of charitable organizations and initiatives in the Tri-Cities. Since our humble beginning ten years ago, we have invested over $1.1 million in grants and bursaries. By increasing individuals, groups, and organizations’ capabilities and resilience, we will strengthen our community.

How your gift will be used

As an independent, public charitable organization, we are limited only by the will and imagination of our donors. Donating through your will enables you to plan now for the legacy you want to create – one that reflects your life, values and the causes or organizations that are important to you. You can make a difference in the lives of others even after you are gone, with flexible options that achieve both your philanthropic and financial goals. We encourage projects that promote self-sufficiency and long-term sustainability through your legacy gift, but we’re not afraid to experiment either. We recognize that innovation, creativity and entrepreneurialism are critical contributors to success. We actively seek projects that have the potential for high impact, no matter how big or small they may be. We help you do this by working with you and your advisors to consider the lasting difference you want to make through your estate. You can give to PoCo Community Fund or start your own. Giving through PoCo Community Foundation will help Port Coquitlam grow into a vibrant, diverse and inclusive city for years to come.
