Southwest Washington is home to some of the Pacific Northwest’s most effective nonprofits, advocacy groups, and community organizations. The Northwestern spirit of giving and mutual support is most apparent when we come together toward a common cause. The Greater Vancouver Chamber (GVC) connects these organizations with corporate partners and private donors to build supportive networks while decreasing duplication of efforts.

Our mission for serving nonprofits is to be an ally for ongoing fund development, connect our community with cause, and to support networking and partnership opportunities across the region.

How GVC Serves Nonprofits

Savor the Couve

What began as an answer to support local restaurants, grew quickly to include tap rooms, breweries and wineries along with 16 nonprofit organizations. Popular demand has made it a biannual, weeks-long event that combines the power of five-course takeout dinners with nonprofit giving! So far, this program has generated $46,600 for 16 area nonprofit organizations and we aren’t slowing down.

Grow the (360)

This ‘locals only’ gift certificate program offers a unique way for community members to support local businesses and give back to local nonprofits as well. Grow the (360) certificates can be spent at 70+ locations across the Greater Vancouver area. Every time a gift certificate is redeemed at a participating merchant it can mean dollars for your nonprofit. Interested in having your nonprofit participate?
