The Alberni Valley Community Foundation provides a unique opportunity for citizens and organizations to make a tangible and lasting contribution in support of our Community’s visions and actions.

The charitable donations collected by the Foundation is invested and the interest earned is distributed to local charitable organizations in the Alberni Valley. The principal is not touched, so the donations continue to grow, generating income to meet local needs for many years to come.
