Community Foundations – a Unique Concept
A Community Foundation is a pool of charitable donations. This pool is invested and the interest earned is distributed to local charitable organizations. The principal is not touched, so the donations continue to grow, generating income to meet local needs for many years to come.
The Alberni Valley Community Foundation
Our Foundation is registered with the Canada Customs and Revenue Agency. It is governed by an appointed Board of Volunteers, who are knowledgeable about local needs and recognized for their financial stewardship and community leadership. Assets will grow each year and the Foundation is then able to support local organizations serving youth, seniors, health, arts and culture as well as education, recreation and the environment within the Alberni Valley.
Our Mission Statement
“The Alberni Valley has been a source of economic, social and cultural wealth for its people. The Alberni Valley Community Foundation provides a unique opportunity for citizens and organizations to make a tangible and lasting contribution in support of our Community’s visions and actions.”
