Join our membership community
Our members are at the heart of our efforts to create a healthy and resilient not-for-profit sector.
When you become a Vantage Point organizational member, your board, staff, and volunteers can participate in our advocacy work and convening efforts for the sector. This is your opportunity to be heard and strengthen the voice of BC’s not-for-profits.
If your organization does have the means to pay for membership, you can become a new member here or renew your membership here. We understand that many organizations are managing tightened budgets and leave this decision at your discretion. We sincerely appreciate organizations who are able to pay for a membership and contribute to our mission during this time.
If you would like to renew your membership, please check for the link in the renewal email you should have received. If you have not received a renewal reminder and link, please contact Miranda Maslany at firstname.lastname@example.org
Want to be a part of public policy discussions and recommendations to support not-for-profits in BC?
By becoming a Vantage Point organizational member your board, staff, and volunteers can participate in advocacy work for the sector. This is your opportunity to be heard and strengthen the voice of BC’s not-for-profits.
Our Work in 2020
With the impact of the pandemic, we advocated for a not-for-profit stabilization fund and urged all levels of government to see the critical role that not-for-profits play in BC’s recovery.
We have asked the BC government to create a home for the not-for-profit sector for over two years, and we were thrilled to see Niki Sharma appointed to the role of Parliamentary Secretary of Community Development and Non-profits in November 2020. We have been a prominent voice sharing your concerns around the Lobbyist Transparency Act and the administrative burden it creates for not-for-profits.
