Ways you can donate!

You can support the Brokenhead region by giving a gift or donation in the following ways:

  • Personal - a gift during your lifetime
  • By will - a bequest may be for a specific amount or for the residue of an estate or any portion thereof.
  • Life Insurance - insurance can be an ideal way to create a major gift at a relatively low cost to the donor.
  • Memorial gift - make a memorial gift to perpetuate the name of a friend or relative.
  • Multi-year pledge - you may make an initial contribution and a commitment to add to the initial donation over a period of years.
  • Corporate - a business may find it advantageous to use the Brokenhead River Community Foundation as a vehicle for its charitable purposes by establishing it own ‘named’ fund.

Our foundation has several areas where a donor can direct their support. They are:

  • North Eastman Health Association
  • General Education
  • Environment
  • Social Services
  • Sports and Community
  • Bursaries
  • Science Bursary - special bursary for students going into a science related field
  • 2006 Winter Games - fund developed to support games involved in the Winter Games of 2006
  • General Health Care
  • Elizabeth Schreyer Archive Fund
  • Unrestricted - where the board will direct the funds to an area of greatest need.
