Central Okanagan Community Response Fund

The communities we love are facing new and mounting challenges as we face the COVID-19 pandemic, the response to which will require our greatest collective effort.

The Central Okanagan Foundation, in collaboration with the Community Foundation of the South Okanagan Similkameen, North Okanagan Community Foundation and United Way of the Southern Interior has launched the Central Okanagan Community Response Fund to deploy relief to organizations disproportionately affected by the crisis.

The impact of this crisis will be felt across all social service sectors. The Central Okanagan Foundation will address the immediate needs of organizations in our community by providing adaptive support; remaining flexible to deal with the evolving needs of those who need it most.

Please join us.

Extraordinary times. Extraordinary actions. Remarkable generosity.
