​NEIGHBOURHOOD GRANTS

Skip to main content


At Valley First, a division of First West Credit Union, we aim to help our communities thrive. What better way to do that than by supporting local grassroots ideas, events and initiatives that are focused on building stronger and more connected communities. Through our Simple Generosity Neighbourhood Grants, we will be gifting $100-$500 grants to local volunteers, groups, and neighbourhoods that are sharing simple ideas to help our communities thrive.

Do you have an idea to bring your neighbourhood or community together? Apply today and you could receive funding to support your idea, event or initiative that is helping to spread #SimpleGenerosity in our communities!


During this time of COVID-19, Simple Generosity Neighbourhood Grants awarded for community gatherings must adhere to social distancing guidelines set out by the BC Centre of Disease Control.
