Vernon Alliance church has a significant history of giving to local charitable organizations through the generous donations to our benevolent fund. As a charity ourselves, it is imperative that this giving is transparent and the proper processes, applications and reports are in place for accountability. It is for this reason, that the Community Initiative Fund was developed – to create an accountable system for oversite.
We are happy to report that many worthy organizations presented applications for these funds and continue to do very valuable work in community. As a church community, we are blessed to support the following organizations with funding:
• The Upper Room Mission
• Feed the Streets
• Eagle Bay Camp
• The John Rudy Health Resources Centre Association
• North Okanagan Youth & Family Services
The Community Initiative Fund was created to support community organizations that serve vulnerable populations with Christian camps, hospital chaplaincy, health, social services, or education mandates. This new process began in September 2022 to ensure transparency and equity in distribution of funds.
