Environmental Education Endowment Fund

For Environment. For Education. For Ever.

Environmental Education 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.

Find out more about how we can support a legacy gift to the Environmental Education Endowment Fund. There are many options that we’d be happy to explore with you. We’d also be pleased to honour you as a CBEEN Legacy partner, which includes invitations to special events. Or, if you prefer anonymity, it will be respected.

Please contact Laurie Klassen at 250-688-0529 or giving@cbeen.org.

“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
