Why do we invest our time, energy, and resources in the Community Foundation of the Kootenay Rockies?

Because we love our communities.

We love where we live, from Fisher Peak to Mount Hosmer, from Moyie Lake to Island Lake, from the Elk River to the St. Mary’s.

We love the people in our communities, and all the things they love to do, from arts and culture, to recreation and sports, to community services.

The Community Foundation of the Kootenay Rockies helps to support all the things we love, now and forever.

What does the Community Foundation of the Kootenay Rockies do?

The Community Foundation of the Kootenay Rockies accepts donations of money and permanently invests it so the money earns interest, every year, forever.

Each year, the Community Foundation gives a portion of the interest to local non-profits to do good things in our communities. Projects that receive funding come from our communities and reflect the unique nature of our communities.

The Community Foundation of the Kootenay Rockies improves the lives of area residents by keeping donated money local, supporting local projects, and helping local people.

Together, we are making our communities even better places to live, work, and play, now and forever.
