The Cortes Community Housing Fund has been established in partnership with the Tides Foundation, as one of their global support initiatives. If you live in the USA and vacation or own property on Cortes Island, you’ll now be able to receive a US tax deductible receipt for charitable donations of all amounts large & small to the Cortes Community Housing Fund.

To make a contribution using your Credit Card or Paypal, you can donate directly to the Tides Foundation by simply selecting our fund name and number: Cortes Community Housing Fund – 2250 via Tides Foundation.

If you would prefer to make a US donation with a Cheque, Electronic Funds Transfer, or contribute Securities (like stocks, bonds, mutual funds) and Cryptocurrencies (such as bitcoin, ethereum, litecoin and others), then please ask us for details on how to receive a US tax receipt for donations of $250 or more by emailing us at for details on how to so directly via the Tides Foundation.

Our exciting project plans for 2020 include rezoning approval for Rainbow Ridge, continued pre-development planning for 20 new affordable family rental homes, and completing construction on four new Seniors Village cottages by December! 

You can help fund the final $150,000 required to achieve all these housing goals this year by making a donation to the Cortes Community Housing Fund using your Credit Card or Paypal, via Tides Foundation.

In gratitude for all your support,

Sandra Wood, Project Co-ordinator
