Grants

With more than $9.2 million in assets, the Westminster Savings Foundation is one of the largest credit union foundations in Canada.

The Westminster Savings Foundation supports projects and programs in the areas of active living and the arts through one-time or multi-year charitable grants. Grants differ from corporate sponsorships in that they are made through our charitable foundation and can go toward charitable programs or projects, as opposed to specific public events or activities.

With more than $9.2 million in assets, the Westminster Savings Foundation is one of the largest credit union foundations in Canada. It has contributed more than $3.2 million in financial support to local organizations since its incorporation in 1992. The foundation receives all of its capital from the credit union. Income earned on this capital helps fund donations to a variety of charitable organizations in our communities each year.

We support:

  • Programming which promotes hands-on engagement with the arts
  • Exposure and access to arts performances, exhibitions and education
  • Projects and programs which build community and promote social connectedness through the arts and/or recreational opportunities
  • Projects and programs enabling and encouraging indoor or outdoor recreational activity and inclusivity for individuals with barriers to participation

Our 2017 granting process

Thank you for your interest. In 2017, applications to the Westminster Savings Foundation will be by invitation only. Please note that unsolicited applications will not be accepted.
