Anonymous Donor Matching Donations

In celebration of fall, a generous anonymous donor of the BC Interior Community Foundation (BCICF) has offered to match donations to three endowed funds held with the Foundation.

During the fall, from August 1 until December 31, 2019 up to $2,500 in private contributions will be matched per agency for a total of up to $7,500 in leveraged funds. The Kamloops SPCA, the Kamloops Food Bank and the Kamloops Hospice House are all intended beneficiaries of this anonymous donor’s generosity.

Donations over $25.00 will receive a tax receipt from the Foundation. Donations can be made by mail, or in-person at the Community Foundation Office (#2 – 219 Victoria St, Kamloops, BC, V2C 2A1), or online at www.bcicf.ca/donate (be sure to put the agency name in the fund name/comments box). Cheques must be made out to ‘BC Interior Community Foundation’ with the agency name on the notes line.

The BCICF is very grateful to this wonderful donor and his mission to leave a legacy for future generations; he is a firm believer in the benefit of endowed funds to help local organizations strengthen our communities. Canada-wide, community foundations are set up with the intention to provide long-term charitable funding and this is reflected in the BC Interior Community Foundation’s intention to encourage donors to “Give Today, Grow Tomorrow”.

The BC Interior Community Foundation (BCICF) was created in 1984 (originally known as the Kamloops Foundation), with the mission to contribute to the quality of life in the Thompson-Nicola and South Cariboo regions by building endowments, making meaningful grants and inspiring community leadership. In 2010, the first staff member was retained. In 2013, Lieutenant Governor of BC, The Honourable Judith Guichon, OBC, became the BCICF’s Patron. In 2014, the ‘Kamloops Foundation’ re-branded as the ‘BC Interior Community Foundation’ (BCICF) to better reflect its regional scope. The BCICF annually distributes nearly $500,000 in grants and scholarships and holds over $9 million across 220 endowed funds.
