Rainbow Kitchen Fund

The Victoria Rainbow Kitchen Society has established an endowment fund with the Victoria Foundation to be know as the Rainbow Kitchen Fund.

The purpose of the fund is to ensure our financial sustainability into the future.

The Victoria Foundation assists charitable organizations, like ours, to build endowments that provide a steady stream of secure funding into the future – funding to support on-going operations.  Established through an Act of the BC Legislature in 1936, the Victoria Foundation is a registered charity accredited by Imagine Canada, and the second oldest of Canada’s 193 community Foundations.

Because of Victoria Foundation’s strong history and proven ability to maintain personal relationships, while at the same time managing complicated Fund, the Victoria Rainbow Kitchen Society believes that establishing the Rainbow Kitchen Fund with the Victoria Foundation will help carry out our vision long into the future;  to provide nutritious meals and fellowship for those in need;  and to create a safe and comfortable environment which enables the building of relations, community spirit and support networks.

You can help Victoria Rainbow Kitchen Society by investing in our future.  Our long-term goal is to have a self-sustaining fund.  Income will benefit the Rainbow Kitchen each year, in perpetuity, for those in our community needing a tasty, hot nutritious lunch.

Here’s how you can help:
