WHO WE ARE
The BC Freshwater Legacy Initiative emerged as a strategic project of the BC Water Funders Collaborative, a group of funding organizations working together to help advance water protection in British Columbia.
In 2016, members of the Collaborative—including the Real Estate Foundation of British Columbia, the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation, and the Sitka Foundation—recognized the growing momentum behind improved watershed planning and governance in B.C. Working in partnership with MakeWay, they combined their resources to create the BC Freshwater Legacy Initiative.
Drawing on local experience and expert advice, this unique initiative makes capacity investments in leadership and innovation at the watershed scale to advance water sustainability throughout B.C.
