Community Partnership Program

Vancity’s Community Partnership Program, funded through our Shared Success program, welcomes opportunities to work with local not-for-profit organizations, social enterprises, co-operatives, labour unions, Indigenous organizations or First Nation governments that align with our values.

Community Branch Partnerships

Each Vancity branch makes small partnership contributions of up to $500 to support local initiatives that are aligned with our funding priorities in the communities we serve. Through this program, branches aim to create reciprocal partnerships that will further our vision of Redefining Wealth.

Vancity Community Foundation

Established in 1989 under the Society Act of British Columbia, with an initial endowment of $1,000,000 from Vancity, Vancity Community Foundation (VCF) was founded with a mandate to enrich the community while building on the values of the credit union.

VCF is a public charity created to help gather together community resources, thereby realizing the potential that exists when we invest in the vision of communities. VCF Strategic Programs focus on not-for-profit social enterprise, community owned real estate (including housing), and collaborative approaches toward change. Funding criteria and application processes vary across our granting programs.
