As a local family-owned business, supporting our communities is important to us. We carefully consider every request and we look for programs and events that meet these criteria:
Organizations that are:
Photo clubs or photo schools or organizations in which our employees volunteer.
Occur in Kerrisdale Cameras’ communities
Provide an opportunity for store involvement.
Types of donations:
