Coast Funds supports First Nations in conservation and economic development. Private foundations contributed $60 million for conservation, and the provincial and federal governments together contributed $60 million for economic development. It is managed by an independent Board and Chair. As one of my diaconal ministries, I have been a Director for over 5 years.
