The Community Foundation of the Kootenay Rockies is very pleased to be supporting the following community projects.

Please contact us for more information.

CFKR welcomes donations to the Elk Valley Regional Land Trust (EVRLT):

  • CFKR has entered into an agency agreement with EVRLT to support the purchase of privately held industrial forestry lands in the Elk Valley, to conserve and protect the lands for future generations.
  • CFKR is accepting charitable donations for this project, providing tax receipts to donors, and stewarding the funds.
  • CFKR is offering several options for donations:
    • On-line PayPal/credit card donations via CFKR’s PayPal Giving Fund Canada link:
    • Interac E-Transfer to [email protected] (In the notes, please include “EVRLT” as well as the donor’s full name and contact information)
    • Cheque: Made out to “CFKR”, note “EVRLT” in the memo, mail to CFKR, Box 242, Cranbrook, BC, V1C 4H8 or deliver to CFKR office — Ground Floor Coworking Space, 131 7th S, Cranbrook, BC
    • Cash: Deliver to CFKR office — Ground Floor Coworking Space, 131 7th S, Cranbrook, BC
    • Employer-Matching Donation Programs: Please ask your employer if they have a program to match their employees’ charitable donations. This is a quick and easy way to potentially double the value of your donation! For example, CFKR has an active account with Benevity, a service that many companies use for their employer-matching donation programs.
  • In the future, if this project does not come to fruition, CFKR will ensure that the donated monies are used to support similar environmental purposes in the Elk Valley, which could include the establishment of a permanently invested endowment fund.

Kootenay East Youth Soccer Association (KEYSA) Indoor Sports Facility Project:

CFKR offers our sincere congratulations to KEYSA on the successful completion of the dome structure, which has increased our community’s capacity for a variety of indoor sports throughout the year, including walking, soccer, baseball, lacrosse etc., as well as community events.

CFKR’s agency agreement with KEYSA ended on June 30, 2021.

We wish KEYSA all the best with the continued operation of this wonderful facility!
