Donate to make a difference.
Your contribution, large or small, lives on in perpetuity to support the changing needs of your community. When you donate to a fund held by the BC Interior Community Foundation, your generous donation is placed in a fund of your choice and only the earnings of the fund are disbursed to charitable causes and projects. Because we are a “360 degree” funder, we offer support to many types of organizations within our communities. You can explore which fund might be a good fit for your generousity here.
The BC Interior Community Foundation is registered as a charity with Revenue Canada (#11897 7107 RR 0001) and, as such, issues official receipts for donations over $25 for income tax purposes. If you are donating less than $25, and require a tax receipt, please use Canada Helps to donate. Please note that a designated endowment fund must have a minimum capital of $5,000, which may be contributed over five years.
If you do not wish to donate online, we can also receive cheques at the office in person or via paper mail:
#2-219 Victoria Street Kamloops, BC V2C 2A1
We are open from Tuesday thru Friday, 9:00 am – 4:00 pm.
Note: Please ensure all cheques are made out to “BC Interior Community Foundation”. The fund you are contributing to can be noted either in the memo space on the cheque or with an enclosed note. Please also include your phone number and email address so we can contact you should there be any issues with your donation. If you want to donate via credit card, and do not wish to use Canada Helps or PayPal (note that PayPal does not require you to sign up in order to use your credit card), we are able to process your donation either over the phone or in person. Contact our office: (250) 434-6995.

Endowments Make a Difference
When an organization introduces endowed funding into their budget, it makes a huge difference to know that they can count on a set amount to be distributed each year.
