We've merged effective January 1, 2020 and while this website may still bear the name and logo of Westminster Savings Credit Union, we are in the process of revising all print and digital materials to bear the name of the new legal entity - Prospera Credit Union. We appreciate your patience during this transitional period.

Donations

Donations

Westminster Savings branches support local communities through a limited number of small donations ($300 or less).

Westminster Savings makes a limited amount of funding available to assist organizations looking for small funding donations (approximately $300 or less) or in-kind donations such as silent auction or door prizes for non-profit events and initiatives. Organizations seeking support must submit a written request (1-2 pages) to their local Westminster Savings branch for consideration at least two months prior to the start of the initiative/event.

Requests must include the following information:

  • which community the event/initiative will take place in and how many people are expected to attend or benefit
  • what relationship your organization has with Westminster Savings
  • how the event/initiative supports arts or active living in the community
  • what type of support you are requesting (funding or in-kind donation)
  • email and phone contact details for your organization

What we support:

  • Community events, programs and activities that promote engagement with the arts, enrich the lives of individuals and families and help create rich and diverse communities
  • Community events, programs or activities that promote active living and enhance overall physical, mental and emotional health, leading to a balanced lifestyle
  • Events and programs that build community, transcend cultural boundaries, promote diversity and equality, address barriers to participation, provide hands-on engagement and promote social connectedness through the arts and/or recreational opportunities

Ineligible requests – what we do not provide donations for:

  • For-profit organizations
  • Events taking place in municipalities outside of Westminster Savings’ trade areas (White Rock, Surrey, Cloverdale, Langley, Burnaby, Maple Ridge, Pitt Meadows, Tricities and New Westminster, South Vancouver)
  • Religious organizations—except for non-denominational activities and services that are open to all persons
  • Touring, hospitality or travel costs (e.g. transportation fare, meals, accommodation)
  • Contests, tournaments or competitions
  • Individuals (e.g. artists or athletes)
  • Conferences or training
  • Capital endowment campaigns
  • Fundraising walks, marathons, challenges
  • Individual sports teams, clubs or leagues (at any level)
  • Requests for retroactive funding

Request a donation

Requests can be submitted in writing to a local branch of Westminster Savings. Please ensure your request is within at least two months of your event/initiative start date.
