Connecting our community to enrich life for all.



Since 2001, the Powell River Community Foundation has made a substantial positive impact on our community by distributing more than $500,000 to local charities. Our foundation was created by and for the people of the City of Powell River and qathet Regional District – providing an opportunity for local individuals and groups to make a difference through philanthropic giving.

The funds we manage are helping to build a prosperous and vibrant community, improving the quality of life for everyone who lives in our beautiful region.

Support when we
need it most

The Powell River Community Foundation is uniquely positioned to access and distribute funds from Federal and Provincial government programs very quickly, as they become available. Without the foundation’s existence in Powell River, these funds would be difficult to access.


In 2023, we were able to access funding from the Government of Canada’s Community Services Recovery Fund to provide grants to local service organizations, including the Malaspina Art Society, Powell River Services Association, Inclusion Powell River Society, and the Knuckleheads Winter Recreation Association.
