BV Naturalists Nature Diary

Mel Coulson, (BV Naturalists), Danielle Skerik and Jackie Wheatley, (BVCF), were on hand to celebrate the 2018 BV Naturalists Nature Diary at the Smithers Art Gallery on Friday night, Jan. 26.  Mel & Evi Coulson and a number of local talents, did an amazing job of organizing and putting together the beautiful art display both at the Gallery and thoughout the 2018 Nature Diary.  The diaries are going fast and if you have not picked one up yet, get one before it's gone.


Organization Profile

The Bulkley Valley Community Foundation was founded in 1991 at the request of the Town of Smithers Economic Development Committee.

Our defined area for grant-making covers Topley, Houston, Granisle, Telkwa, Smithers, the Hazeltons and Kitwanga.

What is a Foundation?

A simple definition of a community foundation is a "pooling of resources in the community for the community". Technically speaking, it is an incorporated not-for-profit organization which is registered with the Canadian Customs and Revenue Agency as a tax-exempt public foundation and is allotted a charitable registration number. The foundation is allowed to issue income tax receipts for contributions.

Five committees include:

  • Executive Committee
  • Fund Development Committee
  • Nominations Committee
  • Communications Committee
  • Grants Committee

Our financial statements are available posted on this webpage.




The Bulkley Valley Community Foundation strives to improve quality of life in our communities by awarding local organizations grants.




The Bulkley Valley Community Foundation allocates its revenue generated on the endowment funds to grants annually.




We'd like to thank you for your generous donations and support because with out your contribution our community would not be the same.




We provide community leadership and offer citizens of the Bulkley Valley the opportunity to invest in the betterment of their communities.
