About us

Our mission

“To improve the quality of life for the people of Revelstoke by distributing the earnings from a permanent, ever-growing pool of funds.”

Who we are
& our history

Formed in 1999 on our city’s 100th birthday of incorporation. The Revelstoke Community Foundation is a Society registered with BC Registrar of Companies and designated as a public foundation and registered charity. We keep our administrative fee as low as possible to ensure that more of your donation goes to where it matters most. In 2008 we established a modest administration fee of 1%, which increased to 1.5% in 2020. Tax deductible receipts are issued for all donations. The Foundation is managed by a Board of Directors and supported by seven committees. Membership in the Revelstoke Community Foundation is open to any resident of Revelstoke interested in furthering the charitable work of the Foundation.
