Choose Your Charity
Select a Charity
Provincial Employees Community Services Fund (PECSF) organizes charities in two ways, available in 28 different regions across B.C. Employees making a donation have the option of selecting the regional pool (fund supported pool) or their own list of charities, but not a combination of both.
Fund Supported Charity (approved charities) - pick from your regional list
This refers to a community-based, charitable organization, chapter or program that has applied for and been approved to receive a portion of funding by your local PECSF regional committee.
These organizations are required to report out annually on the status of their approved program in order to continue to receive funding during each three-year funding cycle.
Donor Choice - choose your own
To request a new Donor Choice charity addition to your PECSF region, simply contact PECSF@gov.bc.ca with the following information:
- Formal name of registered charity
- Specific program name if applicable
- Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) registration number
- Local chapter address if applicable
- Phone number, website and contact name if available
- Your PECSF region
Please visit the CRA website to find registered charity numbers in your city or province, or contact PECSF for assistance.
- Most new Donor Choice charities are added to regional lists during the annual awareness campaign at the request of employees only
- A minimum donation of $50 is requested
- Charitable organizations cannot request to be added (see Fund Supported Pool)
- PECSF ensures each charity is in good standing with the CRA prior to sending funds. If your charity is no longer in good standing or has closed, you will be contacted and your current donation held until you allocate the funds to another organization
Charities by Region
Charity options are either Fund Supported or Donor Choice. You can support either the pool of Fund Supported programs, or individual Fund Supported programs/Donor Choice charities, but not both options.
- Fund Supported (FS) charities have been specifically selected based on a strict criteria by members of each PECSF Regional Committee to receive a portion of each regions pooled funds. To learn more, see PECSF Charities
- Donor Choice (DC) charities refer to any CRA registered charity that an employee would like to support. PECSF donors can choose up to 10 charities from their regional list. New DC charities can be added to the list. See Donor Choice - choose your own for details
All charities must be registered with the CRA.
