April 10 -16 marks Make-a-Will Week BC. This is an excellent opportunity for you to review your existing will or, if you don’t have a will, think about having one drafted. A will is the best way to ensure that the people, charities and organizations you cherish most receive the benefit of your estate. The Victoria Foundation supports the promotion of this initiative to encourage the public to make a will and to provide to their charities of choice. http://ow.ly/ZTQZS

How do you know when you’re spending your time and money on the right things? That you’re putting your efforts in the right areas, and not barking up the wrong tree? These questions are just as important for charities and non-profits as they are for individuals, and it’s something we focus on a lot at the Victoria Foundation.

On Wednesday, March 23, we are co-hosting a discussion with The Eldercare Foundation and Island Health about staying connected to our family, friends, neighbours and communities as we grow older. The conversation is sponsored by Island Savings.

An accessible and supportive program for youth experiencing loss is reaching a wider audience, thanks to funding from The Victoria Foundation.

In 1988, the late Sandra Elder, a respected academic researcher in the field of grief and loss, created Learning Through Loss - Empowering Youth, a program aimed at providing grief education and support groups to youth ages 10 to 18.

Over the past 28 years, the program has provided support and healing to hundreds of young people. The program is built on understanding the strength of youth peer support, belonging and guidance by a qualified clinical counsellor.
