Campaign for Children’s Safety

Since 1980, KDSC – the Kelowna & District Safety Council, a non-profit charity – has been helping to create a safer community for the people of Kelowna and the Central Okanagan.

From children’s programs for pedestrian and cycling safety, babysitting, children’s first aid, and home alone skills to driving and motorcycle safety programs for young people and adults, KDSC has helped many thousands of people, and their families, lead better, safer, more enjoyable lives.

Directly or indirectly, virtually everyone in the Okanagan has been touched by KDSC’s vision of safety for everyone who lives here.

Today, safety is more important than ever.

Over the years, KDSC has evolved to serve the changing needs of our changing society. Because we are mission-driven, we constantly work to ensure that our programs are accessible and relevant.

We offer grant-funded scholarships to individuals, children and families of reduced means. We help new immigrants become accustomed to a new community and new customs.

We need your help.

The Campaign for Children’s Safety is designed to address critically needed facility improvements and provide essential programmatic support.

Between now and 2020 – our 40th anniversary as an organization – we need to raise $300,000 to support facility repairs and improvements, and to support children’s safety programs.

Of this amount, our goal is $75,000 in 2018.

Please join our community of supporters

Your gift, in any amount, is sincerely welcome. All gifts are tax deductible, and gifts of $150 or more will be recognized on our “Community of Supporters” recognition wall.

Looking to recognize a family, family member, or someone special in the community? We have a variety of other naming opportunities – call us at 250-765-3163, or email kdsc@kdsc.bc.ca to learn more.

Children’s safety is our shared responsibility – help leave a legacy of safety for the children of today and tomorrow.

Thank you.
