When a club or individual donates to the BCCGC Scholarship Fund this money is pooled and invested with Vancity Investment Management. As of 31 December 2019 Vancity Community Foundation funds had earned an average of 5.67% (after fees) since inception in 1999. Whilst we can’t predict the impact of the current COVID-19 pandemic on this pattern we do know that students will need our help more than ever.
