Chambers Memorial Fund

The North Shore Disability Resource Centre (NSDRC) is a non-profit organization that provides support and assistance to over 200 people with disabilities and their families on the North Shore. The NSDRC was founded by a group of interested parents, professionals and supporters who came together with a common interest to form the organization in 1975. Their vision was to address the residential and social needs of people with physical disabilities living on the North Shore.
In 1992, a past Board President, Bill Chambers, together with his wife, Lois, established an endowment fund in memory of their son, Robert. Robert lived in one of the North Shore Disability Resource Centre Association’s group homes for people with disabilities for many years. Robert Chambers died at the early age of 34. The Chamber’s Endowment fund was created to provide ongoing revenue for the activities of the Association.
In 2005, when the NSDRC Foundation was created, the first contribution was that of the Chambers Endowment fund. It is used to support the NSDRC Foundation’s activities and to preserve this legacy by providing an ongoing source of revenue in support of the Association. Interest from the Endowment Fund provides independent revenue to the NSDRC Foundation which can be used for a variety of priorities and purposes. For example, the fund is currently used to provide funding to support the Information & Advocacy and the Summer Bursary Programs.
Since the capital in this Fund will be held in perpetuity by the VanCity Community Foundation and only the interest earned will be spent by the NSDRC Foundation, we are assured long term income to support our activities in the coming years and to prepare for unforeseen circumstances.
Contributions to the Chambers Memorial Endowment Fund create a legacy for the future of people with disabilities on the North Shore by enabling the NSDRC to pursue its mission of “Working for a community for all.”
