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 $5.2 million in financial support to local organizations. With over $10.7 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.
Applicants must hold charitable status with the Canada Revenue Agency and operate in, or benefit community members within one or all of the 11 communities Prospera serves. If you are seeking sponsorship or donation support, visit our Local Support page.
Applications for the Foundation Grants are now closed for the Summer period. Please check back in the fall for the next application period.
Given budget limitations, some programs or projects are beyond the granting scope of the Foundation regardless of their merit. However, we'll ensure that every application is reviewed carefully and evaluated against set criteria to ensure funds are invested carefully.
