Support local communities affected by the Bush Creek East wildfire in North Shuswap.

The SCF Emergency Response Fund is a dedicated fundraising campaign to support the communities affected by the Bush Creek East wildfire in North Shuswap. This initiative will provide assistance to community-based organizations during this time of crisis, helping the community recover and rebuild in the face of this disaster.

The Bush Creek East wildfire has caused widespread devastation, displacing families, damaging homes, and disrupting lives. Recognizing the need for coordinated support, the Shuswap Community Foundation has initiated this fund to provide aid where it matters most.

The fund focuses on aiding community organizations in addressing the more prolonged needs of disaster-affected areas in our home region of the Shuswap, such as sustained food security and shelter, as well as community recovery.

SASCU Will Match up to $25,000 in Donations

The Salmon Arm Savings and Credit Union (SASCU) has partnered with Shuswap Community Foundation and dedicated $25,000 to match donations made to the Emergency Response Fund through a dedicated account.

  1. You donate
  2. SASCU doubles your donation
  3. Together we rebuild the Shuswap

“In times like these, community is what holds us together. The work will continue after the wildfires being fought today are extinguished. Join us in the effort toward recovery right here at home.”

— Barry Delaney, SASCU President & Chief Executive Officer
