Stories of our community involvement
Envision Financial, a division of First West Credit Union just made a $30,000 donation to the Women’s Enterprise Centre, but how does $30,000 help them be #GoodForBusiness?

The Women’s Enterprise Centre is a non-profit organization that supports women entrepreneurs as they start, lead, and grow their business. They offer financing, mentorship and advisory services using a holistic approach and has been doing so in our community for 26 years! Their aim is to help local businesses and the women behind them thrive.

They told us that, for small businesses and the women behind them to thrive, they shouldn’t be afraid to ask for help when they need it. In an ever-changing world and business environment know that you are not alone and to reach out to the Women’s Enterprise Centre for help from their mentors, champions and entrepreneurial support organizations!

That’s why we decided to show the Women’s Enterprise Centre our Simple Generosity with a $30,000 donation! At Envision Financial we’re passionate about keeping a good thing growing. This donation will help them connect with more women, offer them financing and help them grow their small businesses.
It’s Envision Financial, a division of First West Credit Union ’s 14th annual Make a Difference Days! With a number of outdoor and virtual volunteer opportunities, Envision employees have been making meaningful impact in their communities.
I personally kicked off my participation by dropping off most needed food items at the Envision Willoughby branch in support of our local food bank, Sources Langley Food Bank. Next on my make a difference journey, I cleaned out my closet and dropped off my gently used clothes to a Diabetes Canada Donation Bin.
I look forward to wrapping up the campaign next week with a day in the garden at a local senior’s care home and preparing it for the upcoming winter season.

With this support, we’re helping create more "Bookworm Friends” -- a program that connects children with adults to share the joy of reading.

“This donation is crucial to ensuring this the program continues to benefit our community.” Says Annette Williams, Literary Outreach Coordinator. “The $3,000 will go towards purchasing books, training volunteer readers and promoting the programs with families.”

Envision Financial, a division of First West Credit Union is proud to announce this month’s #SimpleGenerosity Volunteer Award recipient, Arianna Almeida.

In 2019, Arianna started the Girls Can Talk Society- a BC student-led non-profit organization that creates a space for girls and young women to talk about mental health, feminism, and leadership. Arianna spearheaded the development and organization of the non-profit in her community and it has since spread to a strong network involving secondary schools across BC.

“She has created a platform for youth to talk openly, find community, and engage as leaders in their own schools,” says Vanessa Gale, Team Lead of the Go Girls! Program with Big Sisters of BC Lower Mainland. “Through this, she has worked with her team to fundraise for women's support organizations and give back to the community in a meaningful way.”

Through the Society’s youth run workshops and partnership with the Big Sisters of BC Lower Mainland, they hope to further support youth in their community by helping those transitioning from Elementary school to Secondary school.

Thank you for inspiring and empowering the next generation of women and congratulations on your award!
Spent a wonderful morning with our friends at Phoenix Society as they broke ground on Surrey’s newest Community Garden adjacent to the Society's Social Innovation Centre. The Envision Financial, a division of First West Credit Union Community Endowment with First West Foundation have committed $100,000 to the project over four years to support with ongoing operating funds required to maximize the garden’s potential.
The Community Garden project will be a mixed used garden with 22 planters, fruit producing trees, a children’s space, harvest table and paved flex space. The garden will partner with local charities Surrey Food Bank , Surrey Urban Mission, Coast Mental Health, City Dream Centre and 99 Nursery.
The site’s grand opening is anticipated for early this fall. We can’t wait to see the magic grow in this joint collaboration effort with Phoenix Society, the City of Surrey and First West Foundation.
We're committed to giving back to the community!
