Prospera donating to COVID-related relief

Surrey, BC – Prospera announced today a donation of $25,000 to Kids Help Phone and Anxiety Canada to help address the sharp increase in mental health needs of those in our communities who have been impacted by COVID-19. The donation will be split evenly between the two organizations. Additional donations will be made over the coming months to help support both the people and organization that are impacted by COVID-19 and its economic consequences.

“Prospera has always partnered with the communities that we work and live in, especially in times of greater need”, says Gavin Toy, President and CEO of Prospera.

“Now, more than ever, the Prospera community team is working hard to support established relationships and grow new ones to support our communities,” says Toy. “In addition to these donations, we will also be matching employee monetary donations up to $10,000 to Food Banks BC. This group provides support for food banks across the province, assisting over 80,000 individuals in need each month.”

Prospera will join credit unions across Canada in support of the Stay at Home Gala on May 2, as a presenting sponsor. The proceeds from this event, which aims to raise $1M, will go to charities across Canada that have been most impacted by COVID-19.

“Prospera's generous and timely donation makes a huge difference when we are expanding urgently needed services like our MindShift Groups for virtual anxiety treatment,” says Judith Law, Executive Director, Anxiety Canada

“During these unprecedented times, it’s important to come together as a community and support the young people in our lives,” says Kids Help Phone’s Director of Western Canada, Harry Wierenga. “We are so grateful that partners, like Prospera, are supporting Kids Help Phone – thank you.”
