Bulkley Valley Community Foundation

The Bulkley Valley Community Foundation creates opportunities for donors to support local initiatives, organizations and individuals to improve the quality of life throughout their communities. Gifts and bequests are accumulated in permanent funds managed responsibly to provide investment income. The BVCF proudly supports students with a scholarship and bursary program. Every year the Foundation also provides grants to organizations for local projects, building communities and enriching lives. The fields of interest for granting include community, fine arts, culture, education, social and family, sports and recreation, youth and health. The BVCF area of interest extends from Topley in the east to Kitwanga in the west and includes Houston, Smithers, Telkwa and the Hazeltons.

The BVCF endowment fund is in its 27th year and is managed by a dedicated Board of volunteers who ensure that heartfelt donations are invested with stability in mind to enable continuing contributions to organizations and projects across the area.
