Make a Donation

The valuable work we do for children, youth and families would not be possible without the ongoing support of our community. If you would like to help us in our efforts the list below includes a number of really simple ways you can lend your support!


Bottle returns

Did you know that the Burnside Gorge Community Association is now an approved charity of the Bottle Depot? It’s never been easier to support your local Community Centre. Returnable containers can be brought into to any Bottle Depot location. Let the cashier know at the beginning of the transaction that you would like to donate your returns to Burnside Gorge Community Association and the value of your bottle returns will be put into our account. Bottle Depot has three locations:
Downtown - 655 Queens Ave.
Glanford - 4261 Glanford Ave
Quadra - 3961 Quadra St


Financial Donations

Your donation can help change a family's life or improve the community you live in. The Burnside Gorge Community Association relies on the support of individuals, businesses and government to provide services to our community. Your donation helps us continue providing a high level of service to families in need in our communities. The Burnside Gorge Community Association is a registered charity in good standing with the Canadian Revenue Agency. We will issue a charitable tax receipt for eligible donations.
Make a secure online donation through Canada Helps or contact us directly at 250-388-5251.
We gratefully accept donations of cash, non-perishable food and personal hygiene items (diapers, soap, etc.). We welcome in-kind donations of services and goods from businesses or individuals. If you have any questions about supporting the work that we do, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.
