A simple way for you to help us live on
For more than four decades the power of the Festival has been in its community. You – our audience, volunteers, and performers– combine to create a marvelous synergy.
Making a legacy donation to the Festival nurtures and sustains this spirit. It ensures that the music keeps playing for many years to come.
After you’ve provided for your loved ones, please consider including VFMF in your will so future generations will continue to experience this wonderful tradition of music and culture.

Here are a few more ways you can leave a legacy:
In 2016 the Festival launched an Endowment Fund which now is at $42000. The Festival receives a small amount of interest the fund generates each year. The Endowment Fund doesn't help us operate annually, but does provide a Legacy fund should the Festival need capital funds for a building and/or find itself needing to pay debts upon dissolution.
Your donations are entrusted to the Vancouver Foundation for investment and you receive a charitable tax receipt.
If you would like to make a donation towards the Endowment Fund, contact us for more information on how to do so.
