Established in 2011, the Slocan Valley Legacy Fund (SVLF) is aligned with the Osprey
Community Foundation, a registered Canadian Charitable Foundation.
Did you know that since 2013 we have provided over $113,000 in grant funding for your Slocan Valley? Every donation, large and small, has led to making this possible! All contributions of $20 or more to the SVLF fund receive a tax receipt, and 100% of donations received are held in an endowment earning significant interest in the Vancouver Foundation for worthy projects in our Slocan Valley.
Currently we have almost $300,000 in the fund
and it is our goal to have $500,000 by the end of 2025!
