Types of Funds


Discretionary Funds

These are funds that support community projects.

This category is divided into:

No Limitations - gives the SCF Board discretion in the distribution of income earned from these funds to support a wide variety of needs and community projects throughout the Shuswap region.

Donor Preference - the donor has included in their bequest a preference to the types of projects they would prefer to support and the SCF Board endeavors to meet that criteria.

Donor Limitation - the donor has selected their fund income be allocated to a field of interest or a specific geographic location within the Shuswap region.

Non-Discretionary Funds

These are funds established by donors who wish to support a specific charity
or advanced educational pursuits for students through scholarships and bursaries.

This category is divided into:

Donor Directed - These funds are established by donors who wish to support specific charities or advanced educational pursuits for students through scholarships and bursaries.

Agency - Charitable agencies in the Shuswap have established their own funds to provide a means of self sustainability.  A donor may wish to support a favorite agency by directing a gift to that organization’s endowment fund.



How do I decide where my donation will go? 

It is entirely your choice where to direct your gift.  Most gifts are received as a cheque or by a credit card transaction through Canada Helps.
All donors are provided with a receipt for income tax purposes.
