Fundraising Goal of $72,500 has been set for the 2021-22 fiscal year
Our fundraising goal of $70,000 was surpassed by more than $9,000 for the 2020-21 fiscal year. The Vancouver Island Crisis Society is extremely appreciative of the many who contributed to support our Youth Suicide Prevention Programs and our Crisis Chat and Crisis Text services during the challenging times of the COVID-19 pandemic.
For the 2021-22 fiscal year, as the pandemic continues, we will continue to experience higher call, chat, and text volumes. Your donations this year will help us continue to support our fellow Vancouver Island citizens — especially those struggling with high levels of anxiety and depression due to social isolation.
In addition to your generous donations, we are thankful to Island Health for its contract funding of our Crisis Line operation. Funding from BC Gaming supports our varied Community Education programs.
Please see our Ask Letter for the 2021-22 fiscal year. It includes a listing of the number of interactions and interventions which occurred during the 2020-21 fiscal year.
