IVC relies heavily on the generosity of individual donors and some local businesses to fund our services. We receive funds from the City of Bainbridge Island through a contract to provide Human Services, as well as grants through organizations like Bainbridge Community Foundation. IVC participates in One Call For All, a community-wide giving campaign that distributes direct donations to organizations as well as a portion of undesignated funds. Since 2014 we have also participated in the Kitsap Great Give. Several local faith communities have also provided consistent financial support, as well as dedicated volunteers.
Over 42% of our annual funding comes through our Summer Dinner Auction. Through the generosity of our donors, attendees, and sponsors, we were able to raise over $87,000 in 2016. This year’s sponsors were:
Gold: Bainbridge Senior Living
Silver: CHI Franciscan
Bronze: Peninsula Cancer Center and The Suquamish Tribe
Supporting: Town and Country Market, New Motion Physical Therapy, Todd H. Adams, DDS, Hill Moving Services and Virginia Mason
