Community Projects


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

Please contact us for more information.


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:

In the future, if the 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 ends on June 30, 2021.

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