Community Foundation of Whistler announces new executive director 

Foundation board welcomes new members

Carol Coffey is taking over the helm of the Community Foundation of Whistler as its new Executive Director.

Previously she was executive director with Whistler Animals Galore Society (WAG).

Joining the Board of the CFOW are Brad Kasselman, Maureen Wale, Melissa McKay, Robin Douglas and Tim Lischkoff.

The CFOW is a non-profit organization dedicated to improving the quality of life in the Whistler and Pemberton areas by pooling charitable gifts from donors to create endowment funds and making grants from the investment income. It manages endowments worth $3.7 million, and has distributed over $850,000 in grants in the decade since its inception.

The CFOW is like a community-owned investment portfolio that yields ongoing dividends. A contribution to one of the CFOW's 26 endowment funds, or the establishment of a dedicated fund, is like making a "forever" investment in the community  - the dividends are paid out each year to a range of groups and projects by way of grants, while the original capital, which is never depleted, continues to grow.
