The Community Foundation of the North Okanagan is dedicated to improving the quality of life in the region by distributing the earnings from a permanent, ever-growing pool of funds.

  • Exercises philanthropic leadership in identifying and addressing community needs and opportunities;
  • Attracts and manages charitable gifts of cash, bonds, shares, pledges, bequests, memorials and life insurance in the form of permanent endowments;
  • Invests these pooled funds prudently, and uses the earnings to make creative grants to deserving charitable organizations for the benefit of all types of activities: community services, arts and culture, education, health, and seniors and youth.

The Community Foundation is thus a catalyst and resource for philanthropy throughout the region. It is a vehicle for caring citizens who want to give something back to their community in perpetuity, both during and after their own lifetime.

United Way has a lengthy tradition since 1961, throughout the North Okanagan Columbia Shuswap, of putting communities first, of nurturing children and youth, of helping families in crisis, reaching out to seniors and those with disabilities to ensure they remain a vital sector in the community - helping those who need it most.

We assess and address the needs of the community every year and decisions are made locally about the distribution of campaign funds.  Campaign dollars raised in the North Okanagan Columbia Shuswap by individuals, employee groups and corporations stay in the North Okanagan Columbia Shuswap.  Because we live here!

Vancouver Foundation is a philanthropic non-governmental community foundation which operates primarily as a permanent collection of endowed funds. Income derived from the investment of the pooled capital of Vancouver Foundation's endowments is distributed to support the activities of charitable organizations across British Columbia. The Foundation is incorporated by a Special Act of the Legislature of British Columbia and is registered with Revenue Canada as a public charity (Charity #11928-1640-RR).

Vancouver Foundation is governed by a volunteer Board of private citizens chosen to be representative of the public interest. The Board is made up of six appointees from key business, legal and civic institutions, who in turn elect six members from the community at large. Through its various advisory committees, the Foundation also benefits from the informed counsel of more than 130 active volunteers who play a key role in the governance and granting activities of the Foundation.
