The Central Okanagan Foundation (COF) is first and foremost a "Community Foundation"; a trusted place where donors go to give and a place that charitable groups go for support in their valuable endeavors. The COF is about empowerment and relevance. We are synonymous with the handing down through generations of the actionable and fulfilling gift of giving.
This we believe to be the true definition of a legacy.
We are not about donations alone. Instead, our true power is in entrusting future generations to make a difference themselves to their community, relevant to their times and their community’s needs. We provide ongoing support to the charitable sector by funding charitable projects that benefit our community. We can only accomplish this with the financial support of our donors. You can help us make a difference!
As a community foundation, we are registered with the Canada Revenue Agency. As tax-exempt public foundations we are publicly accountable for the funds we manage and can provide tax receipts for gifts received.
