Environmental Education Endowment Fund

For Environment. For Education. For Ever.

“Planting a seed for healthier and happier lives by choosing CBEEN as the recipient of this endowment gift has been a wonderful thing to be able to do. We love watching kids thrive in this beautiful valley. Supporting such an important cause—kids and the great outdoors—gave us a way of defining our place in the grand scheme of things.” – Founding donors Blair Robinson and Donna Deschenes

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 the Columbia Valley Community Foundation to find out more: 250-342-2845 / info@valleyfoundation.ca.
