BCICF Funds a variety of community projects centred around seniors & heritage and is proud to fund a number of charities taking the initiative to improve quality of life and community connection among our seniors, as well as organizations working to preserve our heritage.
Seniors & Heritage Funds:
As a regional foundation, we serve many communities – including Lytton. In 2016, the BC Interior Community Foundation stopped by Lytton to discuss community heritage, vibrancy, and engagement.
Chase Museum and Archives is a wonderful part of our region, providing education about culture, heritage and history to all visitors. BC Interior Community Foundation is proud to have helped provide funding for this lovely regional museum in the past.
In 2017, the BC Interior Community Foundation donated $3,000 for the Crossing Bridges Outreach program specifically for seniors. Crossing Bridges provides accessible arts workshops to seniors facing challenges such as isolation and loneliness, depression, anxiety, dementia and physical health problems. This program helps seniors feel a sense of connection, provides them with an opportunity for creative self-expression, and builds self-esteem.
The Kamloops Museum and Archives plays an important part in keeping local heritage and history alive. The BC Interior Community Foundation is proud to support them in their endeavours.
The BC Interior Community Foundation supports the Kamloops Senior Citizens Housing Fund through the Kamloops Hospice Association.
The BC Interior Community Foundation is proud to work with communities in our region to help build strong vibrant communities. We recently visited the beautiful Village of Lytton to present Mayor Lightfoot and Lonny Miller – Interim CAO, with a cheque for $6028.00 from the Lytton Community Health Trust Fund. The funds are used for programs and projects that help support better healthcare in the community of Lytton and area.
