The Foord Family Foundation is a registered charitable foundation based in Vernon, BC, in the beautiful Okanagan valley. We support Canadian registered charities whose initiatives improve the quality of life for children and youth around the world.

Established in 2009, the Foord Family Foundation remains a private family foundation; the Board of Directors is comprised of family members who set policy, assure the Foundation’s good governance, and distributes funds to qualified donees (non-profit organizations that are registered charities and have a valid charitable number within Canada).

Distribution of funds is determined by the Board on an annual basis. Currently the majority of funding awarded has been for BC based initiatives; however, this is not determining criteria. See past grant recipients.


Our Mission
