In the past, funds raised have helped support a variety of the Lieutenant Governor’s legacy programs, including Write 2 Read, supporting the construction of libraries in remote Indigenous communities; Stewards of the Future, engaging youth in stewardship projects; and the prestigious Lieutenant Governor’s Awards for Excellence in British Columbia Wines, promoting B.C. wines. Your generous contributions also support enhancement of the Estate of the Lieutenant Governor of British Columbia, a National Historic site recognized for its exquisite gardens, unique landscapes and heritage buildings.
