Vancity Social Enterprise Partnership Funding Programs

As a financial institution, our primary focus is to help your social enterprise or social venture navigate through the business development process; however, experience tells us that sometimes organizations need grant support as well as financing, in order to progress from concept to growth.

Here are some of the granting programs your organization may be eligible for:

Community Partnership Program

Vancity has a community partnership program (formerly known as the community projects grants program), which offers investments of time, relevant resources and up to $10,000 for local projects and initiatives. The program supports cooperatives, First Nations and not-for-profit organizations engaged in social justice and financial inclusion, environmental sustainability and co-operative economy/ Learn more.
