We are dedicated to building and strengthening our community of Nelson BC and surrounding area.

The Impact of Endowment

Every gift to Osprey, small or large, is pooled in a permanently-endowed fund. Each year, income generated by that capital flows back to the community in the form of grants to eligible charities and activities.

Think of it like growing an apple orchard: donors plant the trees and the orchard grows with each gift, then every year the apples are picked and awarded to the many charitable causes and programs in our community.
