Supporting The Blue Mountains Community

Beaver Valley Outreach, began in 1983 as a small group of community-minded women working out of a residential  basement to distribute warm clothing and hampers to people in need. Over the years, BVO has grown by leaps and bounds. Today, more than 350 volunteers, working with a small staff and a hands-on Board of Directors, generously offer their time and talents to deliver vital programs and services to families, children, youth and seniors in the community.

Beaver Valley Outreach is a well-known and respected charitable organization in The Blue Mountains, touching the lives of many people in the community. Counting volunteers, program participants and partners, it is estimated that 2 out of every 3 Town residents have some connection to BVO.


Your generous donations help fund BVO's numerous programs.


We have over 350 volunteers who give their time to Beaver Valley Outreach.

Why Donate

Local families are able to access our emergency food cubby, clothing & household items, and fresh fruit and vegetables throughout the year. A parent receives recreational funding to help enroll their child in organized hockey/dance or other activities of their choice. Children of local families receive quality childcare right in their own community. Seniors and caregivers benefit from important information and resources available to maximize their quality of life.

For over 35 years, BVO and its many volunteers have been working hard to enhance the lives of people in The Blue Mountains, from infants to seniors, with quality programs and services. While proceeds from our Treasure Shop sales and government funding go a long way to fund BVO’s good work, financial support from the community is always needed. People give for different reasons and in different ways: to support a cause that is important to them and make an impact in their community; to ensure that their memory lives on in a meaningful way; to help reduce taxes while supporting charitable causes that align with their values. Some hold 3rd party fundraisers, where they participate in an engaging event while having fun and raising money that will help locals in our community when times are tough. 

There are many ways in which you can support BVO, both now and in the future. Please consider giving to BVO to help us continue “making good things happen in our community”.
