Strengthening our local communities

The Prospera Foundation is one of the largest credit union foundations in Canada and supports local programs and projects that help make our communities stronger and more inclusive places to live. The Foundation is guided by a dedicated Board of Directors and Senior Executives of Prospera Credit Union and is a registered charity with the Canada Revenue Agency.

Established in 1992, the Foundation has contributed more than $5.8 million in financial support to local organizations. With over $9.1 million in assets, the Foundation receives all its capital from the credit union and income earned on this capital helps fund donations to a variety of charitable organizations in our communities each year.
