Welcome to the Quesnel Community Foundation! 


2016 $50,000 challenge

November 1st, 2016, Quesnel: Thankyou for your support of Quesnel Community Foundation.

It is as a result of your support that the Foundation has grown beyond $2million and been able to invest in nearly 160 community projects by way of over $420,000 in grant awards. As we only make grant awards from income earned from the endowment, your support will continue to benefit the community for years to come.

We are immensely privileged to have been advised by donors,who wish to remain anonymous, that they are planning to make charitable donations of $50,000 before the end of 2016. They have also committed to donate all $50,000 to the Community Endowment Fund of the Foundation if we can raise matching donations totalling $50,000 or more from other donors - people like you reading this post - by 10th December.

The reason for their deadline is so they have time to donate any unmatched balance of their $50,000 to alternate charities.

Please helps us secure this significant donation by rewarding their extraordinary generosity with a donation of your own. With your help, we can meet the challenge and enhance the ability of the Foundation to support local community groups with their endeavours.

We can accept donations 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 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.
