The Comox Valley Community Foundation (CVCF) Community Enrichment Awards will be held on Jan. 29, from 4-5 p.m. at the Comox Community Centre.
This year CVCF will be distributing $170,339 to 21 organizations, supporting a range of projects in the Comox Valley. The funding available for these grants is made possible by the generous individuals and businesses from the Comox Valley, who have created permanent legacy funds with the Comox Valley Community Foundation. The annual income generated from 19 field of interest funds (worth $2 million), and 41 community funds (worth $2.3 million) creates a sustainable source of income to address key community needs, forever. Please join us to celebrate local philanthropists and non-profits who are making a huge impact in the Comox Valley.
In addition to celebrating the 2019 grant recipients, there will be brief presentations from LUSH Valley, Habitat for Humanity and the Cumberland and District Museum about their past Community Enrichment Grant projects and the community impacts.
“We are so fortunate in the Comox Valley to have so many generous individuals and businesses who want to build a sustainable source of income that can address some of our community’s most pressing needs,” said CVCF executive director, Jody MacDonald. “Earnings from these legacy gifts have resulted in more than $2.9 million granted back to the community over the past 21 years to help build a strong, vibrant and healthy community. For over 20 years, donors have placed their trust in the foundation to create lasting gifts that are now worth over $12.5 million, and as our endowment grows over time, so does our ability to broaden our reach and impact.”
Established in 1996, CVCF is an independent, philanthropic organization created by and for the residents of the Comox Valley. To view a list of funds or to donate to a specific CVCF fund, please visit cvcfoundation.org
