Valley First


Feed the Valley

Designed to raise food, funds and awareness for local food banks, Feed the Valley was developed as a corporate citizenship program at Valley First. Since its official launch during national hunger awareness month in March 2010, details about the Feed the Valley initiative have quickly spread and the program now includes other partners committed to eliminating hunger in the region.

Corporate Social Responsibility

Social responsibility at Valley First isn't just a corporate policy—it's a way of life. We don't believe in simply handing out cheques and then disappearing into the background. For Valley First, truly making a difference in the community means building relationships and working together to find innovative solutions

Charitable Foundation

In 2010, when Valley First and Envision Financial merged as First West Credit Union, the Valley First board of directors gifted $1 million to the First West Foundation to start the Valley First Community Endowment. The Credit Union is continuing to grow this endowment by donating a portion of its profits annually and the endowment now holds over $1.3 million.

Sponsorship & Donations

We are proud to provide donations, sponsorships and community event funding, use of promotional tents and gifts in kind to a wide variety of groups. We support hospitals, schools, food banks, youth sports teams and sporting events, community centres, festivals, local United Way campaigns and much more.

Scholarships & Bursaries

Each year the Credit Union Foundation of BC provides education awards to credit union members who are British Columbia resident post-secondary students and in need of financial assistance for academic, technological, or vocational training at accredited schools within the province.

Tent Lending Program

Did you know that Valley First lends out marquee tents to non-profit organizations? Valley First's marquee tents can help you add a special touch to your fundraising or community event. We have a number of 20 x 20 marquee tents that are perfect for establishing a hub of activity at your next event.
