What is Giving Tuesday? Imagine a day dedicated to giving back, around the world, across Canada, and in your own community. It’s a global day of giving, a time to celebrate and encourage activities that support charities and non-profits.
Although the actual day of Giving Tuesday has passed, we are still accepting donations until the end of December to count towards our total. We have already received almost $9,000! Thanks to our awesome supporters we have reached our goal! As donations continue to roll in, we will post the final total in the new year.
We hope you will join the movement and donate to the Slocan Valley Legacy Fund!
This is our annual appeal for support through one-time gifts, monthly pledges, or donations made in memory or in honour of someone special. You can donate through our website, or mail us a cheque, details online. However you choose to give, you will receive a tax receipt for donations over $20. We are NOW only a few thousand dollars away from reaching our current target of $300,000 in our fund – help us get there with your gift! We invest all donations in an endowment fund, spending only the interest to make grants to local community groups. As our endowment grows, we have been able to support cultural events, environmental education, programs for children, new parents and youth, hospice and seniors’ housing, outdoor recreation, safety services, food security and more. Since we first began distributing grants we have helped over 30 deserving organizations.
A donation for Giving Tuesday is a gift you can feel really good about!
We look forward to and appreciate your continued support!
