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.

One of our past presidents and a man with great vision, Bill Chambers, together with his wife, Lois, in the mid-1980’s established an endowment fund in memory of their son, Robert. Robert lived in one of the NSDRC’s adult group homes for people with disabilities and had a clear vision of the life he wanted to live: He wanted to be free to make his own choices and live as independently as possible. Robert Chambers died at the early age of 34. Bill and Lois Chambers established the Robert Chambers Memorial Endowment Fund in 1992.

As the NSDRC continues to work for an inclusive and accessible community on the North Shore, we know that we must put aside money to serve the interests of people with disabilities for the long term. The Chambers Memorial Endowment Fund was created for this purpose. It will provide a permanent income for our Association.

Interest from the Endowment Fund provides independent revenue to the NSDRC which can be used for a variety of priorities and purposes. For example, the Association may designate revenue from the Fund to special projects, or to sustain programs provided through fundraising such as our Information Services program, Summer Program and Vacation Fund.

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 Association, 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.”
