Vancity enviroFund™ program

Our 5 year focus on lighter living

When we give to the environment, the environment gives back to us. That's why the program's focus from 2018-2022 is to support lighter living initiatives that encourage communities to live lighter and gain more of what matters - more time for ourselves and for connecting with others and our natural world, quality long-lasting goods, affordable lives, service to our communities, health, security and wellbeing.

2019 enviroFund has been allocated

We are pleased to announce that the envirofund has supported many lighter living initiatives in our communities in 2019. As such, we have now allocated all envirofund dollars and will no longer be issuing funds for 2019. We are still interested in hearing from potential applicants, but please keep in mind that all applications and intake forms will be reviewed in January 2020.
We encourage you to check out our other granting programs here.
