WECHCPC Now Accepts E-Transfer Donations!
The West End-Coal Harbour Community Policing Centre is a registered charity in the Province of BC. Although we partner with, and are supported by, the Vancouver Police Department, our basic operating costs in 2018 increased by 20%. Donations are important to the sustainability of the WECHCPC. The sponsorships, honorariums, and grants from BC Gaming, West End BIA, ICBC, private businesses, and people like you go directly back into the vital programming we provide our community.
Donations to the WECHCPC can be made year round. Click here to donate using a Credit card, Visa Debit card, or Paypal. We now accept e-transfers! Please send your donation to email@example.com.
The WECHCPC is a registered charity. Tax deductible receipts will be issued for donations over $20.00
