Our President and CEO Jennifer Johnstone visits The Conversation Lab with Don Shafer

How is Central City Foundation unique?

With a unique origin and a history, Central City Foundation’s story is one of being first to react, and one of the first organizations in Vancouver’s philanthropic history willing to step in and help people in the inner city. In an interview with Don Shafer on The Conversation Lab (CFRO FM/Co-op Radio), Jennifer Johnstone, President and CEO of Central City Foundation explains how Central City Foundation was established, its history, and what has made us stand out from other charitable groups. She also discusses the challenges brought by COVID-19 to the inner city, and how CCF’s approach of supporting community-led solutions has shown the path forward for collaboration and coordination during this crisis.
