Community Support

We believe in good corporate citizenship and Pacific Coastal Airlines is pleased to support charities and non-profit organizations in the communities we serve.

Through our Community Sharing program we support families in need within our network each Christmas and provide gift certificates for utilities, food, warm clothes, household items and gifts from Santa for the children. This is made possible by internal fundraisers by staff. In 2018, this effort totalled over $13,000 and all donations are evenly distributed among the families we sponsor.

Pacific Coastal Airlines provides air travel for Special Olympics BC athletes, coaches and volunteers to attend events all over B.C. and helps with ongoing fundraising efforts throughout the year. In January 2019, we celebrated our 20-year partnership with SOBC and are a proud member of the Special Olympics BC Hall of Fame.

On May 30th, 2019 PCA’s 27th Annual Memorial Charity Golf Tournament was held and net proceeds went to support the Source Club of Powell River, a non-profit society that provides educational and life skills to persons suffering from mental illness, the Native Education College (NEC) in Vancouver, and the Burnaby Firefighters Charitable Society. We raised over $70,000 thanks to sponsors and players.

PCA also provides complimentary cargo service to selected animal-welfare organizations. We have donated flights worth more than $32,000 to the BC SPCA. These flights allow animals to receive urgent medical care and gives animals their best chance of adoption by moving them to shelters in more populated areas.

Charitable Donations

In 2018, we contributed approximately $544,000 in goods and services to charitable fundraisers throughout British Columbia.

We support charities and not-for-profit organizations in the communities we serve through our Community Support program with an in-kind (non-cash) gift of a donation flight voucher.
