North Shore Community Foundation Auction 2024

North Shore Community Foundation (NSCF) welcomes all bidders and buyers.

Funds raised from the online auction support North Shore communities, charities, scholarships, programs, including various art initiatives, provided support to assist homeless seniors and mental health education among youth through area high schools.

The 2024 beneficiary, receiving a minimum of $50,000.00, is The North Shore Family Respite Centre.

The Health and Home Care Society of BC (Care BC) is a not-for-profit organization working in partnership with the City of North Vancouver (City) and the Catalyst Community Developments Society (Catalyst), to build a Family Respite Centre (FRC) on East 2nd and St. Georges Ave in Lower Lonsdale.

The FRC will provide temporary Adult Day Care and Overnight Respite Care for seniors diagnosed with dementia, who are living at home, thereby enabling their caregivers to get the periods of “respite” or the rest they require to continue to care for their loved ones at home. Too frequently, the alternative is a visit to the emergency, followed by admission into an acute care hospital bed, and placement in a long term care bed.

As you can see, we want everyone to have fun and have made bid increments very low. Because this is online we don't have to worry about paper and space and time.

However, when it comes time to close the auction, you don't want to lose out on that great auction item by $1.00!

In a nutshell, we recommend that you think about the maximum you want to pay for the item, enter that amount, and choose Proxy Bid. That way every time someone bids against you, your proxy bid kicks in and outbids them by whatever the minimum bid increment is...

Strategy comes into play. If an item is worth $100.00 and you really want it, think about how far over you might go. Use that amount as your proxy. Keep in mind, the first proxy bid entered into the system is the one that rules the final bid. Example, if someone bids $100 as an exact bid, and someone has set $100 as their final Proxy Bid, the Proxy bid will be considered the high bidder.

We recommend that you play and have fun with your bidding, and use Proxy bids on closing day. Keep your competing bidders on their toes.

About North Shore Community Foundation

Welcome to the North Shore Community Foundation.

Our Foundation has a proud legacy of giving back to the communities of North and West Vancouver, Lion’s Bay and Bowen Island and is part of a network of over 180 Community Foundations across Canada. Some of these foundations date back decades, while others are more recent. What unites each, however, is a common desire to give back to their respective communities.

The North Shore Community Foundation is no different. Since its establishment in 1988, the Foundation has granted over $1.5 million in financial assistance to a host of worthwhile community programs run by various registered charities here on the North Shore. From an initial endowment of $1,550 in 1989, our funds have grown to over 1 Million, through the generosity of many donors and benefactors. Thank you.

Today, the assets under management by the Foundation have grown to over $4 million. It is the investment income generated from these funds that allows us to provide grants assistance to deserving groups each year.

Our mission is to accumulate and responsibly administer permanent capital that generates income to fund social, cultural, recreational and educational initiatives that directly benefit the residents of the North Shore.

The North Shore Community Foundation is a virtual organization providing a number of services to the entire North Shore from Deep Cove to Lion's Bay.

We respectfully acknowledge that our members and directors are on the shared territories of the Skwxwú7mesh (Squamish) and Səl̓ílwətaɬ (Tsleil-Waututh) Nations.
