Investing in communities

Investing in communities

Impact lending and investing

We use your deposits to lend to and invest in local businesses, organizations and initiatives that create positive economic, social and environmental impacts in your community.

Stories of impact

Our stories go beyond the facts and figures to paint a picture of the financial, social and environmental impact we help create.

Partnership Funding Programs

Since 1994 Vancity has distributed $287 million to members through dividends and to communities through grants and community investment initiatives.


We welcome the opportunity to sponsor initiatives that support local, natural, and organic food, energy and the environment, Aboriginal communities and affordable housing.


Our many partnerships with community organizations, such as the Vancity Community Foundation, enable us to help realize the vision and full potential of our community in all its diversity.
