About Northeast BC Community Foundation
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.
To enrich the quality of life in our region by providing meaningful ways to create endowment funds, supporting organizations through grants and promoting philanthropy.
Transparency | Inclusivity | Collaboration | Sustainability
Building a lasting legacy of healthy, vibrant, growing communities
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

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.

Yvonne Elden Memorial Fund
It is like completing a circle which began in the 1950s – when the Little Prairie Ladies Club was the driving force in the acquisition of land for the first public library in Chetwynd. As an active member of the Club, Yvonne was very involved in the first library. As a life-long learner and Teacher-Librarian, Yvonne loved books and reading. Her family cannot recall a time when there were not bedtime stories, books in the house, and regular visits to the local library. As her Mother was also a Librarian perhaps it was a family calling?
Donations can be made towards a new Library for Chetwynd in Yvonne’s name for those wishing to.
Cheques should be made payable to Northeast Regional Community Foundation with “Chetwynd Library – Yvonne Elden” on the memo line.
