In The Community
Helping to advocate for and make a positive difference in the lives of children and youth in our community and around the world is a philosophy deeply embedded in our corporate culture. We strive to provide meaningful contributions through volunteering and through financial contributions focused on the advancement of children’s literacy, health and social welfare.
Volunteering is a big part of our life at Danielson Group Wealth Management. We are passionate about doing what we can – as a team and individually – to make a difference in our community. On this page you’ll find a few of our favourite charities and a photo collage of our team at “work”.

YWCA Crabtree Corner is a Family Resource Centre that provides programs and services for families who need them most. Located in Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside, one of Canada’s most impoverished neighbourhoods, Crabtree Corner helps women and their families improve the quality of their lives. We spent a day volunteering in different areas of the Centre, cleaning the kid’s playground area, sorting through clothing donations at the store and learning about the various programs and services they offer.
KidSport is a national not-for-profit organization that provides financial assistance for registration fees and equipment to kids aged 18 and under. Through a confidential application process they provide grants so they can play a season of sport. They believe that no kid should be left on the sidelines and all should be given the opportunity to experience the positive benefits of organized sports.
The Vancouver Foundation is the largest community foundation in Canada. Their purpose is to bring together community assets to address current and emerging community needs. We have setup a fund to tackle the underlying causes of youth homelessness and improve how the community addresses the needs of at-risk youth, particularly those who are coming out of the foster care system.
Adopt A School
Adopt-A-School was initiated by The Vancouver Sun newspaper when it published a letter from a school teacher at Admiral School Elementary. She wrote an impassioned open letter to Vancouver residents questioning if anyone cared about her inner-city students who were coming to school with empty tummies and holes in their shoes.
