Mid Island Gives

Mid Island Gives is a GivingTuesday movement in Central Vancouver Island – founded by the Nanaimo Foundation and built with a team of local charitable organizations.

Tuesday, November 27th, 2018 is GivingTuesday.  How will you pledge your support to our local community?


We have many exciting events planned in Nanaimo this year.

Planned Giving Lunch and Learn – November 1st

There many options when making a donation – big or small. Proper planning helps reduce taxes, protect wealth, and ensure the organizations you cherish most receive the greatest benefit of your giving. This informative lunch & learn will provide details on giving beyond writing a cheque to help you achieve your charitable goals.

Mid Island Gives Charity Expo – November 1st

Central Vancouver Island hosts a spectrum of local charitable and non-profit organizations doing great work to strengthen our community. This is your opportunity to discover local organizations and learn where your support can have the greatest impact.

The Mid Island Gives Un-Event – November 27th

It’s the most comfortable event of the year! No black tie or babysitter required. We won’t judge if your slippers don’t match your outfit. A glass of chilled pinot grigio and a gourmet lobster dinner will not be provided–unless that’s your specialty! We invite you to stay home, put your feet up, and NOT purchase a ticket.

GivingTuesday is a day dedicated to giving back around the world, across Canada and in our own community. It is an opportunity for charities, companies and individuals to join together and promote support for favourite causes. It is a new Canadian movement for giving and volunteering, taking place each year after Cyber Monday. The “Opening day of the giving season,” it is a day where charities, companies and individuals join together to share commitments, rally for favourite causes and think about others.
