It’s easy to establish your own charitable fund, within the Hornby Island Fund, and under the umbrella of the Comox Valley Community Foundation. We can work closely with you, your family, and your financial advisor if you choose, to complete the following steps:
Created in the memory of rock music producer extraordinaire and lover of Hornby, Bruce Fairbairn, the award is given annually to a Hornby student of any age pursuing a post-secondary education in the music or arts related fields. Over the past 15 years, the award has benefited a legion of Islanders, some who have gone on to enjoy successful music careers. Begun with a Stinkbug dance and great support from many Hornby businesses and individuals, a fund was created that was matched dollar for dollar from the Fairbairn family.
This bursary is managed through the Hornby Island Education Society.
This is a memorial Fund that sits within the Hornby Island Community Fund and was jointly created by the Hornby Island Community Fund and the Hornby Island Festival Society in honor of Arne Olsen. Arne was a much loved member of the community, served on the Advisory Board for the Community Fund and was a generous patron of the Festival. The annual interest from the Arne Olsen Fund is used to support programs offered through the Hornby Island Festival Society.
