The FBCA was incorporated and registered as a society on December 10, 1931, under the title Fanny Bay Athletic and Social Society. Through the past nine decades it has morphed into the current energetic registered charity run by a board of directors made up of Fanny Bay residents who volunteer their services. Board members annually provide over 3000 volunteer hours to provide athletic and social events, and activities for residents while keeping the community hall up and running.
Our community hall, complete in 1931, was built on land donated by pioneer, Abe McLauchlin, and constructed primarily with volunteer labour and a whole lot of donated materials. Thanks to the ongoing generosity of Fanny Bay residents, local service organizations and businesses, and grants from various charitable foundations and local and provincial governments, the Hall continues to act as the place in our community to congregate and fraternize with neighbours.
The Fanny Bay Community Association (FBCA) relies on volunteers and community support to maintain and run the Fanny Bay Community Hall. As a not-for-profit organization and registered charity, the FBCA will issue tax receipts for donations of $20 or more, if a mailing address is provided at the time of donation.
You may mail a cheque directly to:
Fanny Bay Community Association
7793 Island Hwy S
Fanny Bay, BC
or give a cheque or cash directly to a Board member.
You may also make an e-transfer to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please note that the FBCA does not require a security question as e-transfers are automatically deposited.
IMPORTANT: The FBCA does not contact individual community members directly by text, email, or phone call to ask for donations. If you have been contacted directly, you are being scammed. Please report the incident to us immediately via the contact info found on this website or in the Flyer, or phone the RCMP.
