OR, to save us the 4% CanadaHelps fee, donate directly to VITA  by making an Interac e-mail transfer to treasurer.vitrail@gmail.com

(To do this, you first log on to your bank site, go to Interac transfers and set up the recipient’s name (VITA) and email address (treasurer.vitrail@gmail.com) under “Manage Recipients”.  For this account, no security question in required.)  

These donations (above) are expended in support of the current, on-going work on the Trail.

 

In 2021, VITA established an endowment fund managed by the Victoria Foundation to provide for the long-term sustainability of the Vancouver Island Trail.  Donations to the endowment fund accumulate over time and in perpetuity.  Our goal is to accumulate several hundred thousand dollars.  Only the income earned on the principal amount of the endowment fund will be available to support Trail maintenance and improvement work in the long-term (the principal is preserved).

If you prefer to support the long-term viability of the VI Trail, please make your donation to the Vancouver Island Trail Association Endowment Fund by going to the Victoria Foundation donation web page –

https://www.canadahelps.org/en/dn/m/15332/donation

Enter the amount of your donation (one-time or monthly) and use the drop down list under ‘Fund ?’  to select Vancouver Island Trail Association (it’s towards the bottom of the drop down list as the various Funds are listed in alphabetical order).

For these donations too, you can save us the 4% CanadaHelps fee by instead making an Interac transfer to treasurer.vitrail@gmail.com and indicate in the comment box that this donation is to the VITA Endowment Fund.       

Be sure to browse around the Victoria Foundation web pages to see all the other impressive work they do!

 

Thank you for your kind generosity!
