Community initiatives

Contributing to the community

In 2012, Canadian credit unions contributed more than $35.6 million last year to aid in the growth and strength of our communities.

In Alberta, we support our communities through financial donations, volunteerism, services and scholarships for local and international initiatives and charitable organizations.
