We need your support
ANKORS’ programs run on community.
Whether you choose to donate your time or money, everything counts.
ANKORS Foundation Fund
When you donate to the ANKORS Foundation Fund, 100% of your gift goes directly to people in the Kootenay / Boundary Regions living with HIV/AIDS and/or Hep C. Your donation will support someone accessing important medical treatments, travelling to see a BBI specialist, or otherwise access very needed care.
Tax deductible receipts issued for donations over $10.00.
Christopher Moore Legacy Fund
When you donate to the Christopher Moore Legacy Fund, 100% of your gift goes directly to transgender people in the East & West Kootenays and Boundary regions. These funds support people accessing gender-affirming garments like binders and breast forms, travelling to important appointments for trans care, connect to human rights advocacy, and other necessary care.

ANKORS Annual General Meeting
Our AGMs are held annually in June of each year, in Nelson or Cranbrook on an alternating basis. If you are interested in becoming a member of AIDS Network Kootenay Outreach and Resource Society or becoming involved in the board of directors, you can contact our Executive Director or Board Chair for more information.
AIDS Walk Student Coordinator
Each summer, ANKORS hires a student between the ages of 17 – 30 to coordinate, develop, and organize the annual AIDS Walk fundraiser for the ANKORS Foundation Fund to support people living with HIV/AIDS in the region.
The job includes organizing volunteers, booking and preparing the event site, media and advertising, running an online silent auction and soliciting donations of prizes from local businesses, arranging entertainment and speakers, recruitment of walkers (although for the past few years we have opted for a barbecue over a walk), and organizing food for the event. Experience with event planning, media communications and fundraising are an asset.
This job opportunity is supported by Service Canada. In order to qualify for this job position, you must have been registered as a full-time student this past academic year and you must intend to return to school in September. People from 17-30 years old are eligible to apply for this position. Aboriginal students and students with disabilities are encouraged to apply.
If you are interested in this summer job with ANKORS, email our Executive Director at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 250-505-5506.
