Partners for life with our donors, communities and ecosystems

Tofino Community Fund

The Tofino Community Fund supports and enriches life for those living in Tofino. This community-specific endowment fund allows donors to provide lasting support for community needs. This fund was established in 2019 in memory of Councillor Dorothy Baert, but is not limited to donations by her friends and family, nor is it limited to donations in her memory. The fund will be grown over time for the long-term benefit of the many organizations that enrich the lives of Tofitians.

Tofino Children's Swimming and Water Safety Fund

Growing up on the ocean presents many opportunities for the children in our communities. From surfing to canoe journeys, being on and in the water is a part of growing up in Tofino. It is our wish that all children have an opportunity to learn how to swim so they can build confidence, enjoy a healthy and fun activity, and participate safely in everything our spectacular backyard has to offer.

Our goal is to build an endowment fund that will annually fund swimming lessons for all students at Wickaninnish Community School. The income will support travel and other costs related to swimming and water safety lessons for students. Funds may be used for children who are home-schooled, as well as for elementary school aged children living in Clayoquot Sound who may travel to Tofino for lessons.
