At Community Ventures Society (CVS), we contribute to our community. Our staff and participants fundraise and volunteer to help others in the community have a better quality of life. Some examples of what we do for others in the community include delivering medication to seniors, giving to the food bank, adopting families at Christmas time, and actively participate in community associations such as the Rotary Clubs in Port Coquitlam and Coquitlam.
If you would like to help CVS continue to help our members and others in our community, there are two primary ways to give - by donation and by volunteering your time.
Contribute by Giving a Donation
We believe that giving is reciprocal and makes us better citizens. So we invite you to consider giving to CVS and help us do what we do for our members, their families and in the community.
Volunteer at CVS
Do you have a special skill, talent, or passion that you think would benefit CVS or the people we serve? If so, please give us a call at 604.937.2020.
Planned Giving is about leaving a legacy. It is a way to continue to contribute to organizations that you would like to support after your lifetime. By taking the time to look ahead and research which organizations match your values, you can feel secure that your giving will make a difference in ways that are meaningful -- to you and to others.
The advantage of Planned Giving is that donating in the future will not reduce your income in the present. Also, your gift assists CVS to continue our services in the future for those who need us. There are tax saving benefits that come with Planned Giving as well. For example, a tax receipt can be given to all stocks, bonds, and mutual funds that are transferred from a trust to a charity. Also, a bequest from your estate of cash or RRSPs can lower taxes that your estate is required to pay.
For more information about Planned Giving, please email Kevin Lusignan, Executive Director, or call 604.937.2020.
The iPad Fund
The iPad Fund is designed to give iPads to those who need assistance communicating. The gift of communication facilitates relationship, employment, and citizenship. For more information, please contact Kevin Lusignan.
