About The Foundation

The Jim Green Foundation was established in 2013 as a tribute to Jim and as a means to keep building the inclusive communities that he saw possible.

Jim Green was an extraordinary civic leader and community builder; he was compassionate, courageous and tireless in his many public benefit works.  The members who now comprise the Jim Green Foundation felt the need for such a project and came together in January of 2013. 

“We formed the Jim Green Foundation to remember and continue building upon the good work that Jim did during his incredible career, acting as a champion for inclusive development of the arts, education, poverty relief, health, and housing.” – Bob Williams, Chair

The Jim Green Foundation advances education by providing public workshops, lectures on leadership, civic engagement, entrepreneurship, community development, equality, public health, and economics.

The Jim Green Foundation is a founder of 312 Main: Vancouver’s Centre for Social and Economic Innovation.
