CBEEN is pleased to announce the launch of our Environmental Education Endowment Fund!
For Environment. For Education. For Ever.
CBEEN understands that environmental education (EE) is a long-term investment in the general health and well-being of individuals, communities, ecosystems and the planet. Our goal in establishing the Environmental Education Endowment Fund is to allow us to support environmental education in perpetuity.
The Columbia Valley Community Foundation, which holds the Environmental Education Endowment Fund in trust for CBEEN, will invest the income to provide an annual return that we can count on forever. All donors will receive a charitable tax receipt from the community foundation.
In addition to cash donations the community foundation is able to discuss other giving options including gifts of securities or property and gifts through wills, RRSPs and life insurance policies. Please contact Laurie Klassen to find out more: 250-342-2845 / laurie@ValleyFoundation.ca.
Like a tree, the best time to plant a seed for an endowment fund is 20 years ago. The second best time is now!
