The Columbia Valley Community Foundation (“Foundation”) is a collection of endowment funds established by donors from all walks of life to build legacies in our Valley communities. Funds are pooled and invested with the income distributed as grants to charitable organizations, and students, in a broad and inclusive manner that benefits the Columbia Valley between Spillimacheen and Canal Flats. The Foundation, on behalf of its donors, has distributed more than $580,000 to registered charities that identified and led over 200 projects in the areas of: recreation, community facilities, children and youth, arts and culture, health and safety, the environment, literacy, student awards and social services.
Together with its community, a foundation enables the unique and essential spirit that flourishes when people believe their community holds possibilities for everyone. To learn more about your community foundation go to ValleyFoundation.ca.
