The Whistler Blackcomb Foundation is dedicated to the financial support of registered non-profit organizations who are qualified donees under the Canada Income Tax Act, whose activities will provide benefit to the residents of the Sea to Sky Corridor. Support from the Whistler Blackcomb Foundation is given in the form of dollar ($) grants. We do not provide funding for operational costs or salaries. The Foundation typically supports programs in the areas of health, human services, education, recreation, the arts, culture and the environment, with an emphasis on children, youth and family programs.

The Whistler Blackcomb Foundation Environmental Fund is dedicated to providing financial support to Qualified Donees whose actions can show a benefit to the natural environment in the Sea to Sky Corridor.  Our mandate is to expand fundraising efforts to support larger environmental projects with long term results within the Sea to Sky Corridor, as well as to build strong partnerships with community stakeholders.

Funds are donated by Whistler Blackcomb Employees and are matched 100% by the Whistler Blackcomb Foundation.   The Board of Directors is separate from the Whistler Blackcomb Foundation and is comprised of employees of Whistler Blackcomb.  They along with the Executive Director of the Whistler Blackcomb Foundation and the Chairperson for the Whistler Blackcomb Foundation Envirofund make the decisions on where the funds will be allocated.  Since 2001, Whistler Blackcomb employees and the Whistler Blackcomb Foundation have proudly donated over $380,000 to causes specifically focused on the Environment.

Please review the Mandate and Grant Application Format for funding requests and contact Cynthia Buck, Chairperson for the Whistler Blackcomb Foundation Envirofund with any questions at cbuck@whistlerblackcomb.com or 604-938-7364.
