It Started with Ten


Top Ten Reasons to Give

The Hornby Community Fund sits within the Comox Valley Community Foundation.  This list is reprinted from our partner's website.  

  1. We are a local organization with deep roots in the community, and part of a nationwide movement whose support we build on and share.
  2. We bring donors to the table as community builders, working closely with them to align their philanthropic vision with the community’s needs.
  3. We identify long-term needs and opportunities and invest in solutions that let our communities guide their own future.
  4. We take a broad and inclusive view of what a community is, and provide grants to the widest possible range of organizations and initiatives.
  5. We provide highly flexible and personal service, accepting a wide variety of assets and offering donors maximum tax advantage.
  6. We build permanent funds using the income generated to respond to immediate needs, helping our communities ensure vital futures year after year after year.
  7. We multiply the impact of gift dollars by pooling them with other gifts.
  8. We believe that diversity is strength, so we bring the entire community together to stimulate new ideas, build participation and strengthen community philanthropy.
  9. We are transparent and reputable stewards of community resources, committed to being accountable, accessible and responsive.
  10. We build community vitality—the unique and essential spirit that flourishes when people believe that their community holds possibilities for everyone.
