It's the countdown to #GivingTuesday and today we're celebrating the wonderful programming offered by Boys and Girls Clubs of South Coast BC!
This year, a $15,000 grant was awarded to support the Clubs’ after school programs in Delta, Surrey and Langley. 735 children and youth ages 6-18 years have a safe and supportive place to experience new opportunities, overcome barriers, build positive relationships, and develop confidence and skills for life. “When Jimmy first started at the Club, he had many struggles with making friends. Through sports and different outdoor activities, he was able to mature and learn teamwork skills, and now has friends from all age groups. Jimmy now comes to the Club daily and is visibly applying these skills in all aspects and is now one of our kids that has taken a leadership role and helps our younger kids out whenever it is needed.”
The Envision Financial, a division of First West Credit Union Community Endowment is proud to support programs like BGC’s to help our youth and communities thrive.

Envision Financial, a division of First West Credit Union just made a $30,000 donation to Small Business BC, but how does $30,000 help them be #GoodForBusiness?

Small Business BC is a community-led organization that exists to provide resources for those looking to start or grow their own small business. In British Columbia, over 98 percent of all businesses are small businesses. They provide colour in our main streets, jobs in our communities, and essential services throughout our province. Now, more than ever, in a time of upheaval for many small businesses, where challenges are the only constant, Small Business BC supports and appreciates these businesses that are so important for our communities to thrive.

Small Business BC strives to make entrepreneurship as widely accessible as possible in British Columbia. Every business starts off as a dream, and many of those dreams aren’t realized due to knowledge gaps, roadblocks, or lack of access to support. They aim to remove as many of these barriers as possible through programs like Back to Business where they equip businesses with the skills and knowledge they need to not only survive, but thrive, in the new realities of our COVID economy.

That’s why we decided to show Small Business BC our Simple Generosity with a $30,000 donation! At Envision Financial we’re passionate about keeping a good thing growing. This donation will go towards donation will empower Small Business BC to provide direct support and recognition to several hard-working entrepreneurs making a difference in our community.
Envision Financial, a division of First West Credit Union just made a $15,000 donation to BC Young Farmers, but how does $15,000 help them be #GoodForBusiness?

Farming is a very important industry to our communities, and BC Young Farmers is looking to move agriculture into the future and continue to build a strong group of young farmers to help our community thrive. With changes and challenges coming from the agriculture industry’s sensitivity to climate change BC Young Farmers told us that farming businesses today need to be extremely adaptable and resilient in their production, business planning, and even personal mental health. BCYF is providing the information, education, and skills necessary for the next generation of agriculture leaders in our community to take on these challenges coming from climate change, to keep our agriculture industry thriving!

The young farmers BCYF helps range from agriculture students to experienced producers who already own a successful operation. However, they are all hungry for knowledge and practical experience to further their professional development. This donation will help them to explore new programing opportunities and increase the resources they already offer and continue to be a training ground for tomorrow’s agricultural leaders here in the Fraser Valley and beyond.

At Envision Financial we’re passionate about keeping a good thing growing and that’s why we decided to show BC Young Farmers our Simple Generosity with this $15,000 donation!

Envision Financial, a division of First West Credit Union just made a $30,000 donation to Community Futures BC, but how does $30,000 help them be #GoodForBusiness?

Community Futures BC supports small businesses and rural economic growth with support like their Talk to an Expert, Business Plan, and Market Research services. They provide entrepreneurs the resources to implement strategies to maintain and grow their own businesses.

Because businesses rely on their customers to shop for their products in person, and even more so lately online, Community Futures BC said having a digital presence to promote their products or services is imperative. Their business planning and implementation resources can help you create that internet presence, reach that target audience, and help your business thrive!

Community Futures BC measures their own success by how well small businesses and the communities they’re in are doing. With programs like IDEA – Innovation through Diversity, Entrepreneurship and Adaptability – for persons with disabilities, Community Futures BC ensures everyone who has or wants to start a small business in our community has a chance to succeed. Whether it be the 837 loans, totaling $31.4 million they’ve distributed, or the 1,934 jobs those loans have help create or maintain here, Community Futures BC is indeed doing good things in our communities.

That’s why we decided to show Community Futures BC our Simple Generosity with a $30,000 donation! At Envision Financial we’re passionate about keeping a good thing growing. This donation will go towards supporting Community Futures BC’s Entrepreneurs with Disabilities Programing to further economic inclusion for anyone who has a viable business idea and are motivated to run their own business.

It’s Envision Financial, a division of First West Credit Union ’s 14th annual Make a Difference Days! With a number of outdoor and virtual volunteer opportunities, Envision employees have been making meaningful impact in their communities.
I personally kicked off my participation by dropping off most needed food items at the Envision Willoughby branch in support of our local food bank, Sources Langley Food Bank. Next on my make a difference journey, I cleaned out my closet and dropped off my gently used clothes to a Diabetes Canada Donation Bin.
I look forward to wrapping up the campaign next week with a day in the garden at a local senior’s care home and preparing it for the upcoming winter season.
