The Port Moody Foundation was established in 1989 by a group of caring citizens and generous donors who envisioned a Foundation whose goal was to invest in projects and initiatives that enhance the quality of life in Port Moody. Today the Foundation has an endowment of over $500,000. These funds are held in perpetuity and the interest earned is invested back into initiatives that support the quality of life of Port Moody.
Our generous donors have established funds that reflect the diversity of their interests. Their funds provide scholarships to Port Moody students pursuing post-secondary education, enhance our natural environment and support our library. Undesignated donations are invested in our general endowment, the interest of which is distributed to support organizations that are working to enhance our community; organizations such as our museum and art gallery. In 2013, over $11,000 was distributed.
Port Moody is a community built on heritage and tradition. We take pride in the unique character of our city and the diversity of our people. In partnership with our community we will continue to build endowments to invest in Port Moody.
