What is a Community Foundation?

A community foundation is a public charity serving thousands of people who share a common interest — improving the quality of life in their region, today and forever.
Individuals, families, businesses, and organizations create charitable funds that help meet local and regional challenges.

Thank you, Kamloops! With your incredible support, we are carrying on the legacy of the Christmas Cheer Fund. In 2023, we raised over $30,000 to benefit four local charities dedicated to serving our community. Your generosity truly makes a difference!
