The Whistler Blackcomb Foundation is dedicated to the financial support of registered nonprofit organizations whose activities will provide benefit to the residents of the Sea to Sky Corridor.
The Blackcomb Foundation was formed by Blackcomb Skiing Enterprises in 1992 in order to enhance the Mountain`s role as a supporter of the community. Under the direction of the Foundation`s President, David Brownlie, and Vice-President Joanne Houssian, our name changed to the Whistler Blackcomb Foundation.
Our mandate is to expand fundraising efforts to begin to support larger, more everlasting community projects within the Sea to Sky Corridor, as well as to build a stronger relationship with residents of the community. Since 1993 the Foundation has raised over $3.5 million for registered nonprofit programs throughout the Sea to Sky Corridor, making it the largest fundraiser for the area. The Whistler Blackcomb Foundation is dedicated to the financial support of registered nonprofit organizations whose activities will provide benefit to the residents of the Sea to Sky Corridor. Registered nonprofit organizations may provide programs in the areas of either health, human services, education, recreation, the arts, culture and the environment. The Whistler Blackcomb Foundation provides support by way of grants. The Whistler Blackcomb Foundation is dedicated to the financial support of qualified donees under the Canada Income Tax Act, whose activities will provide benefit to the residents of the Sea to Sky Corridor. Our fundraising is achieved through two fun-filled charity sports events and the successful new Founder`s Pass Program. For each event, we use corporate sponsorship and individual ticket sales to raise funds.
