Donors like you can help the Government House Foundation support the Lieutenant Governor’s programs, which include honours such as the British Columbia Reconciliation Award, the Lieutenant Governor’s Award for Literary Excellence and others. Funding also sustains the Lieutenant Governor’s Youth Advisory Council, and the youth-focused Stewards of the Future program that encourages ecological awareness.
IIn addition to the Lieutenant Governor’s programs, the Foundation helps to maintain the beautiful gardens of Government House, which are tended by scores of dedicated volunteers. In recent years, the Foundation rehabilitated Cary Castle Mews, turning these historic buildings into Rudi’s Tea Room, which is enjoyed by local and global guests. The stained glass windows in Government House, along with many other enhancements made over the years, are also thanks to the Foundation’s efforts.
