Our Community

Our Community

Since 1944, Community Savings has been active in the well being and ongoing improvement of our communities. Community Savings is about people, not profits, which is why in 2016, we proudly donated over $45,000 to worthwhile and deserving community programs. People, not profits, means we contribute to a strong local economy by being a living wage employer and by offering affordable financial products and trusted services to the working community. In the past year, we are grateful that we could support local organizations in health, policing, leadership and other positive community focused programs. 

Some of the organizations that we have supported include:

Supporting the Red Cross
Supporting the Red Cross:

The massive wildfires in British Columbians during the summer of 2017 triggered mass evacuations in several communities across the province.
Fast moving flames forced thousands of people from their homes and urgent help was needed for individuals and families evacuated from their communities.
In response to an outpouring of concern, Community Savings Credit Union supported the Red Cross efforts on the ground by donating $7500 to help assist the relief efforts.
Community Savings Credit Union also accepted cash donation from its members to further grow the donation amount. A big thanks to everyone who donated!
