You can donate items that have resale value. We’ll raffle, auction, or sell them to generate funds. You may drop off donated items, both new and gently used, to Pema Wangchen in Duncan (250-748-6028), Jampal in Victoria (250-360-0474), or Yongdong in Courtney (250-732-5759).
You can volunteer to help with our various events. We need help with things like designing & distributing posters, selling tickets, writing thank-you cards, answering emails, etc.
Organize your own event
You can organize a small event on your own and raise some money for Yushul. It could be as simple as gathering your family for a dinner or movie night, or setting up a friends’ night, drink night, sporting event, or games gathering. TSCOVI will be happy to assist you in any way we can.
You can help us spread the word, ask your friends to volunteer or buy an event ticket — for themselves or as a gift.
