We Take Having Fun Seriously!
Beacon’s Furry FUNdation (BFF) is a non-profit association, specifically a destination marketing organization (DMO). Our job is to promote the entire Kizzmit Tourism coverage region of the Central Interior of BC (including communities in the Thompson, Shuswap, Okanagan, Boundary Country and Similkameen regions) as a fantastic travel destination to the rest of the world to visit with their families. As a non-profit organization, we are led by a Board of Directors and committees assigned to various fundraising initiatives. We create bold, inspiring, and engaging marketing campaigns that inspire visitors to plan their trip to the Kizzmit Tourism coverage region, and we work diligently to create brand awareness and advocacy for the Kizzmit Tourism coverage region as a travel destination. As a non-profit, we are supported via board directed fundraising initiatives, local and provincial government who all see the value in the tourism economy and our ability to unite together to market the Kizzmit Tourism region in a way that no one business could achieve individually.
• We live with integrity.
• We are passionate.
• We work hard and play hard.
• We support youth and tourism development.
• We embrace and drive change.
• We use our resources to the fullest potential.
Not your typical tourism agency being led By Beacon the Beaver and friends but sure to provide growth in our youth, in our local communities and in family fun.
Beacon is excited to have started this initiative to give a fresh outlook on tourism in the Kizzmit Region through youth and community projects.
