Revelstoke For Refugees
The Revelstoke Community Foundation is accepting donations on behalf of the Revelstoke for Refugees committee formed to sponsor a Syrian refugee family. From a listing of 30 different families offered to Revelstoke, the committee has chosen the Almastou family of seven. $60,000 is needed to support the family during their first year in Revelstoke.
This multifaceted project will require many volunteers. If you wish to volunteer or would like more information about Revelstoke for Refugees, please contact Rana Nelson at email@example.com or check out www.facebook.com/Revelstoke-for-Refugees.
The Board of Directors of the Foundation created the Environmental Fund in 2011. Contributions to the fund will be designated towards environmental stewardship projects in the Revelstoke area.
Family Legacy Program
The Family Legacy program was established during the Revelstoke 2004 Homecoming. Individuals and businesses make donations to provide recognition for a significant person or family. Contributions are tracked and upon reaching $5,000 the fund may then be permanently named and designated to provide support in a specific field of interest.
Campbell Family Challenge
The Campbell Family, former residents of Revelstoke, have played a significant role in developing an academic bursary fund. Starting from the inception of the foundation, Mr. W. Earl Campbell and other family members, has challenged the community of Revelstoke to donate. The Campbell family will match donations to the Hillcrest Campbell Award fund.
