Without the various grants we have received over the past few years, the Galiano Community Food program would not have been possible. Thanks to the efforts of the Galiano Club Board of Directors and to Jane Wolverton's relentless pursuit of funding, over $100,000.00 dollars have come into our community in the form of grants, providing full-time and part-time employment to at least four Galiano residents, as well as the means to purchase the equipment and materials necessary to the continuation of our activities.
We gratefully thank our current sponsors for their invaluable monetary contributions:

The Vancouver Foundation
YMCA well as ongoing support from members of our community ! :)
