The KDCF seeks donations from local corporations and individuals and is approaching former residents of the Kimberley area that still feel a connection to this community. Gifts, pledges, legacies and bequests, memorial tributes for loved ones and donations from the proceeds of life insurance will all help to build the Foundation’s pool of capital.
Money raised by the KDCF in our first two years was matched by both the Columbia Basin Trust and the Vancouver Foundation to a total of $50,000 each.
In addition to providing donors with a charitable tax receipt, the KDCF offers donors a number of fund options to better help them meet their giving needs.
Community Fund: This fund provides the most flexibility to meet future community needs. Decisions on how the income from the fund is disbursed each year, are made by the Foundation board based on the current needs of the community.
Winter Games Legacy Fund: This fund is established to support the City of Kimberley in aiding sports-related organizations in the community.
Bill Motek Memorial Fund: This fund supports the work of the Pines Memorial Society at the Kimberley Special Care Home.
All our endowment funds are held by the Vancouver Foundation and managed by their team of professional investment managers
