New Year, New Look, Same Commitment
2021 is a BIG year for the Comox Valley Community Foundation. In addition to celebrating 25 years of service to this community, we are thrilled to share our new look! Our new logo, based on the infinity symbol, represents the forever and lasting nature of our mission and work. Over the last 25 years, a lot of things have changed in the Comox Valley, but our commitment has not waivered. The funds we steward will continue to enrich life in the Comox Valley FOREVER!
2020/21 Community Enrichment Awards
Please join us to celebrate (virtually) the 2021 Community Enrichment Grant recipients and all the work that is done by charities and not-for-profit organizations in our community. We will also recognize the vision of the 57 families, businesses and organizations who have created community legacy funds with us, and who make the grants possible

We bring donors to the table as community builders, and help them formulate and realize their philanthropic goals, matching their interests and concerns with community needs and opportunities, and finding innovative and responsible ways to give their investments lasting impact.
We take the broadest view of what a community is and what it needs to thrive. Therefore, our grants support everything from safety and support of the less able or less fortunate to recreation, the arts, and the environment. We take a long-term view of the community and through our Vital Signs Comox Valley initiative, our granting and community engagement help make our community more caring and compassionate, resilient and better positioned for an improving future for all who live here.
As an independent charitable organization, we are only limited by the will and imagination of our donors, and the groups and people we support in the community. Since inception, our donors have generously entrusted us with over $12 million which we have promised to establish and maintain as endowment funds – in perpetuity, the income from which is to be used to benefit the Valley residents through the invaluable work of registered charities and other qualified service providers.
A gift of any size does and will continue to make a difference. To date, we have returned more than $2 million to the community in grants, scholarships and bursaries for students and investment returns to those organizations that entrust their funds with us. And this will keep growing!
