ACNO Legacy Fund

The following programs need funding support:

Joining Hands

An arts program offered free of charge to adults with different abilities. Supported with funding from Gaming BC.

Spring Break Camp

Spring Break Camp offering arts education to children of all ages for 2 weeks in the spring.

Summer Break Camp

Summer Break Camp offering arts education to children of all ages throughout the 7 weeks of Summer.

Planned Giving

Planned Giving is often described as “leaving a legacy” because Planned Gifts are created to make an impact for future generations. It is surprisingly easy to arrange a planned gift. Though more sophisticated gifts will require more care, many methods are quite straightforward. Whatever the method, you can plan your gift to maximise your objectives. A Planned Gift can:

  • give you a tax advantage (often the tax benefits are quite substantial)
  • fit appropriately with your estate plans and concerns for heirs
  • compliment your lifestyle goals
  • match your wish to leave a legacy to the cause you care about.

Planned Gifts and other donations to the Arts Council of the North Okanagan can be made easily and securely through Canada Helps at
