We are the Osprey Community Foundation, a public, charitable foundation created by and for the people of Nelson, BC and the surrounding area. We are here to help groups and individuals make an ongoing difference in their community. Donations to Osprey are pooled in a permanently-endowed fund – our community’s nest egg – which currently has a value of over $9 million. Each year, income generated by that capital flows back to the community in the form of grants to eligible charities and activities.
Calling all West Kootenay Youth!
Are you between the ages of 15-29 ? Do you have bold ideas for how to help your community? Are you keen to develop new skills, gain experience, and build relationships while addressing a local need?
You could receive a grant of up to $15,000 to make it happen with the RBC Future Launch Community Challenge.

When Ron and Jennifer Lount-Taylor contacted Osprey to see how they could support mental health programs for our community’s First Responders, we told them about Osprey’s Nelson Police Foundation Fund.
The Fund provides support for meaningful police and community projects that fall outside the annual police budget, like mental health initiatives for First Responders.
Thanks Ron and Jennifer for your generous donation to the Fund!
