Our Goal

Founded in 2020, the Lake View Credit Union Foundation serves as the charitable arm of Lake View Credit Union. As an organization, Lake View Credit Union works with businesses, non-profits, local governments and individuals throughout the Peace to foster an environment that communities and people can thrive in. Likewise, our Foundation is dedicated to supporting the required infrastrucure and human capacity to support such an environment.

The LVCU Foundation Giving Priorities

If there's one thing we've learned about the Peace region since we opened our doors in 1943, it's that no organization or entity is an island unto itself. The frontier spirit of the North has cultivated a culture of interdependent networks that pull together to grow and flourish here in the last, best West. What that means is that Lake View Credit Union recognizes that what benefits one organization often benefits many and where needs exist can change quickly from year to year. As a result, our approach to prioritizing funding is intentionally fluid and dynamic. 

To be eligible for funding from the LVCU Foundation, an organization must be a registered charity. Other than that, we try to go where our community leads us, where the need is greatest, and where we can do the most good.

We have a passion for education, health, cultivating entrepreneurship, and empowering our members, neighbors and communities to build a brighter future for themselves.

If your organization or initiative fits that description, we want to hear from you.
