The Thetis Island Community Fund Volunteer Board would like to thank all of you who supported our Annual October Fund Raising Campaign. 

As of November 12th, close to $6,500 has been raised. This money supports many initiatives which improve the quality of life here on beautiful little Thetis Island. Contributions to the fund support:  a wide variety of educational initiatives, yoga, aikido, Food Safe training, Thetis Island School programs as well as scholarships.

We support medical care and treatment such as our recent flu clinic as well as the new x ray machine at Chemanius Hospital.  The Community Fund also provides support services for our seniors AND contributes to other charitable organizations that benefit Thetis Islanders such as the Thetis Island Community Associationn through a joint fundraiser. 

Even though our official Fund raising campaign is over, we welcome contributions all year long – it’s not too late to make your contribution because every little bit makes a difference.  You can make a financial contribution three ways, by cheque to the Thetis Island Community Fund, P.O. Box 12-14, Thetis Island, B.C., VOR 2YO, or if you donate annually to the United Way, please designate `Thetis Island Community Fund` on your United Way Form. Or, donate online through our website using the security and convenience of PayPal by clicking here
