Vanderhoof Community Foundation thanks the Omineca Medical Clinic for their Jeans Day Donation

Vanderhoof Community Foundation representatives Mary Burkholder and Kathie LaForge were on hand at the Omineca Medical Clinic on Friday, 7 December to receive a $500 donation from the Clinic Doctors and Staff.  The staff have been contributing regularly to the Jeans Day fund and Doctors have decided to top up this donation and present it to the Foundation in time for Christmas.

The Foundation is most appreciative of this donation to our Endowment Fund and the earnings from these invested funds makes it possible for the Foundation to begin a Grant program starting early in 2019.  These grants are available to groups in Vanderhoof and Area who wish to offer programs, services or infrastructure designed to improve quality of life for local residents.

We hope the efforts of the Omineca Medical Clinic demonstrate that all donations make a difference and other businesses in the community might consider the Foundation a worthy cause for their fund-raising efforts.

Remember donating to the Foundation is a gift that keeps on giving as your donated $$ are held in perpetuity and the income from these investments is given back to the community in the form of grants so your dollars stay at home.

For more information check out our Facebook page (Vanderhoof Community Foundation), our website ( or call Kathie LaForge at 250-570-9320.
