Creating capacity and bettering lives in our communities.
We believe in supporting local non-profit and charitable organizations that serve the most vulnerable in our communities. Through Lead Well, our social vision, we encourage our employees to volunteer with local organizations in the social sector to help our communities thrive.
We are proud to share a three-year partnership with the BC Cancer Foundation with a total investment of $300,000.
We know this is near and dear to our employees, members, and communities when 1 in 2 British Columbians are impacted by cancer—this alarming statistic tells us the need is immense and the time to act is now.
Our partnership will involve employee engagement and activation for several of BCCF's initiatives throughout the year as well as dedicated funds going towards the greatest areas of need across the province to help advance research and innovative care.

We have paused the Community Crew program due to Covid-19 restrictions. Our youth ambassadors will be out in the community as soon as it is safe to do so.
The Island Savings Community Crew is a youth ambassador program designed to develop leadership skills and provide an opportunity for students to act as role models while giving back to our local communities.
Throughout the year, our team of high-school students attend local community events in our trade area, and offer free activities such as face painting, playing giant jenga, family games and interacting with our mascot Penny the Owl. In addition to this, during the summer, each Crew member has a unique volunteer placement with one of our non-profit partners.
For more information on the program, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We believe in the power of partnership, working together to achieve social impact and make a difference in our communities.
Our neighbourhood grants celebrate community leadership, volunteerism and initiatives that help our communities thrive.
We want to partner with like-minded organizations to create good things in our communities through high impact, socially motivated programming and events.
