The Oliver Community Fund
Is for people who love Oliver and want to give back to their community where they’ve lived, raised their family, and played. It’s a gift for the future. By combining our donations, we can provide lasting support for local community needs and priorities we care about.
The Oliver Community Fund was established in 2000 by a few local individuals and business who collectively gave $5,000 to establish the Fund and was matched dollar-for-dollar by the Community Foundation of the South Okanagan | Similkameen. The funds were endowed with the vision to create a sustainable source of funding for the community of Oliver.
The Oliver Community Fund is set up as on “open fund” so that anyone can make a contribution to give back to their community. The Oliver volunteer Advisory Committee brings local knowledge and expertise to address the community’s unique needs, and works actively to increase charitable giving.
The Oliver Community Fund – what does it do?
It’s a charitable endowment fund where your donation is permanently invested; income generated by the capital flows back to the community in the form of grants to eligible charities and activities. It provides a sustainable source of funding for the community.
Today, the Fund has reached $20,000 in donations and has dispersed more than $5,000 to local organizations.
Recent recipients of the Oliver Community Fund include:
- Oliver & District Heritage Society
- South Okanagan Rehabilitation Centre for Owls
- Tuc-el Nuit Elementary
Consider making a donation to Oliver Community Fund to show that you care about the future of the community.
