Read the report

To the ones who say change is impossible, we say just watch.

This fund exists because progressive ideas, the ones that we need, also need people who will give them a chance. When a business-slash-sort-of-like-a-non-profit doesn’t fit the checkboxes on a form, or others that don’t fit a mold, they can get ignored.

And we refuse to ignore real solutions.

Beyond the enviroFund, 30% of Vancity’s profits go to societal and environmental solutions through Shared Success . Everyday deposits support our local economy. Which means, just by using a Vancity chequing account , or business account , you help make a difference.
