The Whistler Blackcomb Foundation is a registered non-profit organization formed in 1992. They are dedicated to providing financial support to organizations within the Sea to Sky Corridor in the areas of health, human services, education, recreation, art & culture and the environment with a special emphasis on youth and family programs. Their mandate is to support larger, everlasting community projects. To date the WB Foundation has raised over $11 million for Registered Sea to Sky Charities. A large portion of fundraising is contributed through the Whistler and Blackcomb Mountain Resorts Ltd. The resort donates 50 VIP Annual ski passes called the Founder’s Pass at a cost of $6000 Canadian per year!
In October 2017 the Whistler and Pemberton Welcome Center applied for funding to support the Community Kitchen and Global Gardeners projects. These projects enable immigrants to learn life skills related to food such as gardening, preserving foods and preparing meals. These projects are benefical to immigrants because they build confidence and healthy eating. They also teach the community the importance immigrants bring to the community.
It is with great pleasure to announce that the WB Foundation has accepted our application and will be giving us funds to purchase 2x iPads, 2x keyboards and 2x cases for the programs. We will now be able to document workshops in a variety of ways and in a timely manner.
