Vancouver’s Habitat for Humanity receives largest single donation ever

COQUITLAM, B.C. — Habitat for Humanity Greater Vancouver has received the largest-ever single donation in the history of the organization’s Canadian affiliates.

The Al Roadburg Foundation recently donated $5 million to the housing organization, states a news release.

The donation will go towards a 42-unit housing project located on Burke Mountain in Coquitlam on land donated by the City of Coquitlam.

“The Al Roadburg Foundation is honoured to provide this leadership gift to Habitat for Humanity Greater Vancouver on behalf of Al and Lola Roadburg and their family,” said Robert Carrothers on behalf of the foundation in a news release.

“This proposed 42-unit project allows the foundation to provide direct benefits by assisting in providing safe, stable and affordable homes for families in need.”

The project is in the permitting application stage with expected completion in 2025.

“Presently, the non-profit organization receives limited funding from BC Housing and the Government of British Columbia. The generous gift from the Al Roadburg Foundation will cover about one-third of the construction budget for the new Coquitlam project at 1358 Coast Meridian Road,” reads the release.
