You or your company can support the Okanagan Village Housing Society through making gifts of:
tax-deductible gifts of land, cash, stocks, real estate, life insurance policies and many other properties of value. All non real estate gifts will be used to purchase appropriate land acquisition for affordable housing.

Leaving a gift to the Okanagan Village Housing Society through a will or estate plan helps a donor leave a legacy in the community and ensures that the donor’s gift continues to benefit the community long after they are gone.

Housing Programs

The Okanagan Village Housing Society is always looking for new opportunities to add affordable housing units to North Okanagan communities. Here are our existing projects as well as two new projects we are currently working on.
