Donate to Habitat for Humanity Vancouver Island North

Fill out the form on Habitat for Humanity’s website to make a quick and secure donation online.

You can also make your donation in-person at (or by mail to) our Comox Valley ReStore (1755 13 St, Courtenay, BC V9N 7B6) or Campbell River ReStore (1725 Willow St, Campbell River, BC V9W 3M8).

In order to incentivize the community to support Habitat for Humanity Vancouver Island North’s two multi-unit affordable housing projects, three local businesses have partnered to match donations until December 31st!

Last year, Christoph Real Estate Group and Robbins & Company CPAs joined together to match donations to Habitat up to $5,000.00. Thanks to overwhelming support from the community they were able to exceed that goal. This year another community-oriented business, Fresh Coast Investments Inc., has joined the campaign, increasing the potential match to $7,500.00.

That means we have the opportunity to raise an additional $15,000.00 towards our affordable homeownership program by the end of the year. But we can only do that with your help!

The teams at Christoph and Robbins both found it deeply rewarding to support Habitat last year and were eager to champion the cause for a second time. As parents in the business of real estate, Jakob and Jasmen Christoph recognize the importance of homeownership in a young family’s life and wanted to support a cause that helps make it attainable.

“The Comox Valley is a great place to live,” said Daryl Robbins of Robbins and Company. “Habitat helps make that a reality for their families. We are proud to support such a great organization and cause.”

Aaron Bellmore of Fresh Coast Investments Inc. has been supporting Habitat for Humanity through the Real Estate Investment Network for over seven years.

“Being back in the Comox Valley makes it even more personal for me,” explained Bellmore. “I am proud to be in a position where I can help, especially in my hometown. I feel homeownership [can be] a catalyst to many other successes in life. Housing is a necessity and if I can help people at any stage to improve their situation, we will have more people capable of helping others.”

In June four more families, two in Courtenay and two in Campbell River moved into their Habitat homes. On December 5th at 10:00 am, another four Courtenay families will receive their keys in a public ceremony at Habitat’s 1330 Lake Trail Road construction site.
