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 anniversary of incorporation, the Revelstoke Community Foundation has been working to connect donors with causes that matter in our community. We partner with donors to build an endowment of permanent funds – a legacy just for Revelstoke. From Here. For Here. Forever.

From the growth of the fund, the Revelstoke Foundation annually distributes grants to charitable organizations working to positively impact our community.

Further, the Foundation manages a scholarship and bursary program to support Revelstoke students.
In 2020, the Foundation celebrated the milestone of distributing over $1 million in grants to charitable organizations and scholarships to students.
