How To Give

Give To An Existing Fund

Make a contribution to one of almost 80 endowment funds within the Comox Valley Community Foundation.

When you give, you join with many others working together to address a broad range of our community’s needs. Donations of any size to any fund are welcome and fully tax deductible.

To make a memorial or honorary gift to any fund, fill in the person’s name as you go through the on-line donation process, on the Memo line of the cheque or use our Donation Form (link).

If you don’t find a fund serving a cause that matters to you, we invite you to learn about creating a fund.

Creating Your Fund

It’s easy to establish your own charitable fund at the Comox Valley Community Foundation. Our Fund Development team will work closely with you, your family, and your financial advisor if you choose, to complete the following steps:

  1. Determine the amount of your gift (Min. $1,000 with a commitment to build it to at least $10,000 within 10 years or through your will)
  2. Choose what assets to contribute (Cash, securities, life insurance, etc.)
  3. Name your fund
  4. Consider which charities and causes to support
