Columbia Basin Trust
Columbia Basin Trust supports the ideas and efforts of the people in the Columbia Basin.
We take our lead from residents and communities. Whatever the situation calls for, we adapt our role: from providing resources, to bringing people together, to leading an entire initiative. The Trust is here to offer experience and support to all Basin residents.
While our range of services, programs, initiatives and financial investments is extensive, our purpose is straightforward: we exist and act for the social, economic and environmental well-being of the Basin—now and for generations to come.

Basin PLAYS Initiative was created to address the Physical Activity priority by supporting organizations, school districts and active recreation programs in creating safe, inclusive and quality programs to build the motivation, physical competence and confidence to participate in sport and active living for life. Basin PLAYS goals are to enhance Basin youth’s physical literacy and reduce barriers to access quality sport and active recreation experiences by:
- providing resources and incremental financial support to school districts to enhance their students’ physical literacy development.
- providing resources and funding support to sport groups and community recreation programs to build organizational capacity.
- supporting continued education training of Basin coaches.
- fostering a Basin culture that promotes active living through ongoing communication, collaboration and awareness.
