CHCCS is fortunate to currently be a successful applicant and receive funding through BC Child Care Operating Funding Program and these funds help to reduce fees, subsidize staff wages as well as annual operating costs. The Board of Directors is fiscally responsible for CHCCS and makes decisions based on the longevity of the daycare.
As a non profit charitable organization CHCC thankfully accepts cash donation and will happily provide a donation receipt for income tax purposes.
The BC Gaming Community Grant has been a long time supporter of CHCCS and we apply for their community grant as well as other grants available to help with projects, repairs and annual operating expenses.
