Fundraising Goal for 2019-20 is $50,000
Our fundraising goal was reached the last fiscal year. The Vancouver Island Crisis Society is very thankful to all those who contributed to support our youth suicide prevention programs and our Crisis Chat and Crisis Text services. This year, our fundraising goal supports the same programs and services as demand for these continues to grow.
In addition to your generous donations, the Vancouver Island Crisis Line is primarily funded by Island Health for its Crisis Line operation. Funding from BC Gaming and community grants support our varied Community Education programs.
Our heartfelt thanks
for your financial support.

Your Help Can Save A Life
Vancouver Island students SPEAK OUT
and tell us that they GRASP life skills
and learn how to COPE by enjoying life!
Last year, 2050 Vancouver Island students gained invaluable skills, including suicide awareness and prevention, and new perspectives to increase self-confidence and thrive.
Demand is high for our school programs.
Help us reach more young Islanders.
