To act as a catalyst for the creation, presentation and appreciation of the arts by managing and operating the Rotary Centre for the Arts in co-operation with the City of Kelowna. KVPACS will nurture an appreciation for, and work to provide advancement of, the arts through policies, programs and activities within the Rotary Centre for the Arts.
In 2005, the Rotary Centre for the Arts (RCA) established an Endowment fund with the Central Okanagan Foundation by contributing an initial amount of $10,000. That same year, this contribution was generously matched by the Vancouver Foundation, BC Arts Renaissance Fund, and The Endowment Incentives Component of the Canadian Arts and Heritage Sustainability Program, tripling the RCA’s initial investment.
To date, the RCA's total investment of $45,000 has grown to over $117,000. This will remain in perpetuity, with all interest earned used towards supporting Youth Arts Education Programming at the RCA. This program helps to ensure every child within our community has access to Arts Education programming at the RCA.
Anyone wishing to make contributions to the Rotary Centre for the Arts Fund is encouraged to do so, as the RCA has the opportunity to have an additional $250,000 tripled this year. We would like to thank our contributors for their continued support.
