Make a Donation

The community needs to stand together to sustainably create and support the Child Advocacy Centre of Kelowna as it marks an important step forward in the support and protection of our most vulnerable citizens.

These children deserve more, we invite you to be part of the journey to deliver a better outcome.

Monthly Donation

Every month children impacted by abuse will walk through the doors of the Child Advocacy Centre, each one of them will have a unique story. One of the most meaningful ways to support the Child Advocacy Centre is by making it part of your ongoing community giving strategy. A small monthly donation makes a world of difference and connects you to this cause for the long term.

The Gift of Time

The Child Advocacy Centre of Kelowna is ultimately a community project and as such, will always require the generous contribution of time. If you are interested in volunteering your time, we invite you to apply here. While we do not currently have any immediate volunteer opportunities, as the project grows so will the need for volunteers!

We look forward to meeting you.

    Innov8

    The generous folks at Innov8 have made a commitment to provide the CAC with all of the printers and copiers required for the facility. The value of this contribution is hard to put a number to because it’s not just the upfront costs but also the ongoing money the CAC will save by being able to do their printing in house to support kids in need.”

    Nor-Val Rentals donates $10,000
    “We believe in giving back. This Centre will serve families from Lake Country all the way through Peachland, this is where a lot of our business is done and it feels good to give back in the community where you do business. This cause supports vulnerable kids, that pretty easy to get behind and we hope others will do the same.”

    – Jim Clipperton
    Owner – Nor-Val Rentals

 

In the context of a child's life, the best argument for a Child Advocacy Centre is simply that it clears the path for a child victim to leave his victimization behind and have the hope to start again.
