2017 Gala

Saturday April 8th

It's all done and dusted...but what a great evening at Quesnel & District Seniors' Centre - doors openedat 6.00pm, the magic started at 6.30pm...literally! The Magical Jesaja opened the evening on-stage, then took to the floor to baffle and bewilder.

There then ensude an evening of fun and games, silent and live auctions, bucket draws...and a reverse draw to win two spots on a wonderful 3-day expedition with Big Canyon Rafting.

You can find more details and pictures on our Facebook event page.

2016 $50,000 challenge

Between 1st November and 10th December, we were set a challenge: raise at least $50,000 and anonymous donors would match that $50,000 with a donation of their own to the Community Endowment Fund.

Thanks to the enduring generosity of the community we serve, we were rewarded with donations exceeding $67,500 to secure that additional $50,000 donation.

Of course, we accept donations throughout the year, by way of cash, cheque, Interac, Visa, MasterCard, and existing investments. For more details, go to the How To Give tab.

Thankyou, again, for your support. Follow our continuing progress via our Facebook page.

The gift that keeps on giving

Quesnel Community Foundation operates under the premise that all donations received will be used to generate investment income to be used to fund our Grants...with the capital created by those donations never being spent.

Your gift will last, and give, forever. Click on our How To Give tab
