The Columbia Valley Community Foundation has developed a temporary COVID-19 Community Response Fund and we need your support. 

We have created a community response fund to support charities, non-profits, and organizations to effectively and efficiently keep community members safe in the current environment while meeting the increased demand for services and support. In addition to utilizing Foundation resources, we are reaching out to our community to help those in need. 

Through these difficult times we have seen the incredible strength, resilience, and collaboration of our community. Emergency needs, basic needs of housing and food security, mental health, and domestic violence are just a few of the challenges facing a larger vulnerable population than usual. We want to support the initiatives of our dedicated community members through the funding they need to help. Many have been asking how they can help others in their community in need during these challenging times.  A donation to the CVCF COVID fund goes directly to those needs.  100% of the donation is granted to charities addressing needs in the community resulting from the pandemic. 

Donations can be made online. Alternatively, donations can be made to the Columbia Valley Community Foundation, PO Box 991, Invermere BC, V0A 1K0 (please indicate COVID-19). All donations over $20 will be provided a receipt for donation purposes. Thank you for your generosity.
