Become a Knowledge Philanthropist

Contribute your talent toward transforming non-profit leadership with Vantage Point

What is Knowledge Philanthropy?

Vantage Point innovated the concept known as “Knowledge Philanthropy”— a practice which engages skilled and passionate volunteers from the community to increase capacity and add expertise to non-profit organizations across British Columbia.

Our Knowledge Philanthropists (“KPs”) contribute their specific expertise and experience towards our mission: lifting the capacity of non-profit leaders.

They offer time, energy, knowledge, and skills to Vantage Point, and are key members of our integrated talent team.

Our primary 2 Knowledge Philanthropy roles are Facilitators and Digital Hosts however, we have a multitude of other ways to get involved in our work, in areas such as content development, advisory positions, event hosting and more.

Check out our current opportunities on Volunteer Connector through govolunteer.ca. Don’t see an opportunity for you? We’re always looking for new ways to engage our talented KPs.
