About Northeast BC Community Foundation

Giving back for the long term

Community is our committment

What  is a Community Foundation?

A Community Foundation is a charitable non-profit organization dedicated to improving communities in a specific region. Its members contribute time, leadership and financial support to local initiatives, helping donors give back where their communities need it most.  

Community Foundations help Canadians invest in building strong and resilient communities in unique and innovative ways. They link donors with specific community needs and manage long-term endowments to fund strategic granting decisions. 

There are 191 community foundations covering 90 percent of communities across Canada, with $5.2 billion in assets under management. 

Our Mission

To enrich the quality of life in our region by providing meaningful ways to create endowment funds, supporting organizations through grants and promoting philanthropy.

Our Values

Transparency | Inclusivity | Collaboration | Sustainability

Our Vision

Building a lasting legacy of healthy, vibrant, growing communities

History

Founded in 2009, created by and for our communities throughout the Peace region, we are building our asset base in endowed funds to provide long-term financial support for community projects in health, the environment, social services, arts, culture and other emerging community needs.

The Northeast BC Community Foundation offers you the unique opportunity to support your community and to share in shaping its future by pooling and investing the charitable gifts of our donors. Gifts and bequests are accumulated in a permanent trust fund managed by a highly skilled team of professionals. Investment income is allocated carefully and responsibly to charitable organizations committed to enhancing the quality of life in our community.

The Northeast Regional Community Foundation is a registered charity:  #82401 5556 RR0001

We’re a proud member of Community Foundations of Canada

Did you Know
In Memoriam Fund…. for many people who have lost a loved one it is a challenge to know how to honor them and to keep their memory alive.
There is a way to do just that and leave a lasting, ongoing legacy in their name. I recently read the tragic story of a 17-year-old that was killed in an auto accident. At the memorial there were 1000 people who gave over $66,000 in donations. The family created a fund in their child’s name. This fund now provides grants each year…. forever, in honor of this teen.
It takes as little as $10,000 to establish a Fund which can grow and continue to give back and impact our communities.
Call today to find out how you can establish your own Fund with us.

Grants

Every year, in partnership with our donors and fund holders, your Community Foundation provides grants to innovative charitable projects, both large and small. The Northeast BC Community Foundation has helped citizens give back to our communities since 2015.

 

There are two grant cycles during the year and applications can be submitted any time. Deadlines are February 15th and September 15th.

Bulterys House

The Northeast BC Community Foundation partnered with South Peace Health Services Society and their project for the Bulterys House in Dawson Creek.

Bulterys House was established for the purpose of improving access to health care. The goal is to provide comfortable and safe lodging to those who must travel to Dawson Creek to receive medical treatment/care or to visit family that are. Bulterys House provides more cost-effective accommodations at $30.00 / night.
