$795K set to land with 56 different charities across BC

First West Foundation is delighted to announce our regional community endowment grants for 2023. This year 56 charities are sharing in $795,000! Grants will start landing in mailboxes all month long as dollars are headed for communities in the Enderby & District Financial, Envision Financial, Island Savings and Valley First regions of First West Credit Union.

We LOVE our First West Foundation donors and their superstar generosity. Again, this year, along with the Foundation board and staff, our donors called the grantees with the fantastic funding news!
