other ways to get involved

You don’t have to take a traditional approach to your community involvement. We love donations, fundraising, and corporate giving, but we’re always very grateful for those who choose to give in ways that work best for them.

Here are some other ways to give:


You can support people experiencing homelessness, mental illness, and addiction long after you are gone with a legacy gift (such as an insurance policy) or by naming RainCity Housing as a beneficiary in your will. This can also reduce your estate taxes.

Our team would be happy to work with your legal or financial advisor to ensure that your gift is used exactly how you intended and benefits as many people as possible for as long as possible.

Here’s our full legal name, charitable number, and address you can take to your lawyer or financial planner:

  • RainCity Housing and Support Society
  • BN 12711 5780 RR0001
  • 616 Powell Street, Vancouver, BC V6A 1H4, Canada


Consider designating RainCity Housing as your gift registry for an upcoming significant event, such as birthdays, weddings, Christmas, and Hanukkah. Get your friends and family involved in choosing their "gift".

For example:
$20 = 10 pairs of socks
$55 = 10 meals
$112.50 = 30 roundtrip 3-zone bus passes

Be creative! Be you! And thank you for choosing RainCity Housing.
