Valley First

Neighbourhood Community Grants


At Valley First and Enderby & District Financial, divisions of First West Credit Union, we aim to help our communities thrive. What better way to do that than by supporting local grassroots events and non-profit initiatives that are focused on building stronger, more connected and inclusive communities. Through our Simple Generosity Neighbourhood Community Grants, we will be gifting $60,000 in grants, ranging from $100-$1,000 to local volunteers, groups and neighbourhoods that are sharing simple ideas to help our communities thrive.

#SimpleGenerosity Neighbourhood Community Grants will be launching in May – stay tuned for more information and inspiring stories from our communities.

In 2017, we were proud to launch #SimpleGenerosity in recognition of Canada 150 by providing $50,000 Simple Generosity community grant to Foundry Kelowna!

Foundry Kelowna is an integrated youth mental health care centre established by the KGH Foundation in partnership with Canadian Mental Health Association, Kelowna. With a focus on early intervention and cooperation between clinical and social support programs, Foundry Kelowna offers solution-based programs and patient-centered care for young people age 12-24, transforming the way youth mental health is addressed in our communities.
