A Community Foundation is a pool of charitable donations. This pool is invested and the interest earned is distributed to local charitable organizations. The principal is not touched, so the donations continue to grow, generating income to meet local needs for many years to come. Assets will grow each year and the Foundation is then able to support local organizations serving youth, seniors, health, arts and culture as well as education, recreation and the environment within the Alberni Valley.
