BC Interior Community Foundation establishes Disaster Relief Fund

In the aftermath of the unprecedented heat, fires and flooding in our region, we have established the BC Interior Disaster Relief Fund to provide assistance to the communities impacted by these devastating events. Donations to the fund will be used to address needs that cannot be met through other funding programs and will be distributed in consultation with representatives from those communities. You can donate today by clicking the link below.
