Are merchandisers bombarding your inbox with Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales?  Giving Tuesday helps to put the pre-Christmas shopping season in perspective. On Giving Tuesday, charities across the country celebrate the spirit of giving – whether that means donating to a cause or volunteering with an organization.

At LCF, we want to say a big thank you to our fund holders.  These are the generous individuals and corporations who have established endowed funds so that we can give back to you.

We want to thank everyone who has made a donation of any amount to LCF.  Your donations support our granting program.

We want to thank the volunteers of local organizations.  Your donation of time, energy and ideas make the communities of Greater Trail a special place to live, work and play.

On Tuesday, November 28, please remember to give in some way.

The Google.org Impact Challenge will grant $5 million to Canadian nonprofit organizations that are using technology to tackle the world’s biggest social challenges.

Please take a few moments to complete the BC Community Survey.  The Vancouver Foundation will use the results of the survey to help British Columbians understand important issues across the province and in our home communities.  The more local people who complete the survey , the better information we will have to help make our community more inclusive, resilient and strong.
