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.
WHO WE ARE
As a proud member of Community Foundations of Canada, the Northeast BC Community Foundation facilitates philanthropy, by partnering with donors to build permanent endowment funds that support community projects.
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
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.
