What people are saying about us

Steven MuellerHamilton Bulldogs Foundation

FirstOntario Credit Union and it's staff played a pivotal role in our Foundation's fundraising efforts this past year. Their dedication and enthusiasm while selling 50/50 tickets during our home games helped make it possible for us to raise over $150,000 this past season. Their commitment to volunteerism and strengthening our community was evident each and every game. The money they helped raise was put towards our Breakfast Program which feeds children at 23 local high need schools every day. On behalf of the Hamilton Bulldogs Foundation, thank you for helping make a positive impact in our community.

Stories of our community involvement
FirstOntario Credit Union is proud to support student nutrition programs again this year! With this year's support of nearly $250,000, our contribution over the last 6 plus years has totaled almost $1.7 million dollars to agencies across our regions. In addition to dollars, our #BlueWave employee volunteers lend a hand in preparing and delivering snacks and healthy food to students. It looks different this year but our volunteers were glad to help get local apples to school in Niagara this week. @niagaranutritionpartners @devriesfruitfarm #FirstONCommunity #FirstONVolunteering Lloyd Smith Shirley Botham Robert Somma jessica plenzick Marisa Muraca Christine Susa LORETTA MACDONALD STEPHANE WALLIS

Each year, Halton Women's Place hosts the “Hope in High Heels” walk. This year's event was virtual so our Chief Risk Officer, Mark Perkins, organized a private, socially distanced walk over the weekend to continue to support this amazing cause that he’s been involved with for the past 10 years. Even our CEO, Lloyd Smith, joined in. A big thank you to Halton Women’s Place for the work they do to support women and children in our communities!
Having some #flashbackfriday fun! In support of United Way Haldimand-Norfolk in 2018, Lori joined in on the annual Jail & Bail Fundraising Kick off. She was 'arrested' for cow tipping and was able to raise more than double her goal of $300 to get out of jail. #BlueWave #FirstONCommunity #FirstONVolunteering
FirstOntario Credit Union #BlueWave volunteers have been in the Hamilton and Niagara communities this week helping to bring smiles to Tim Hortons cookies. Thanks to all volunteers for their support as it benefits a number of organizations in our communities that provide valuable services. A smile goes a long way! @tina glen Angela DiFrancesco Elizabeth Diletti Lindsay Nicole Rose Idzenga
- I had the privilege of working with a #hospiceniagara volunteer, Jean. Together we decorated dozens of cookies with part of the proceeds going back to Hospice Niagara. Jean and I shared experiences we have both had with Hospice, which is such a loving and caring place. I truly appreciate the opportunity to help raise funds for Hospice Niagara. - Marlene Goosen

Every year for the last 11 years, Marisa Muraca has dedicated her weekend leading up to the Terry Fox Run to bake cupcakes to raise dollars for the annual fundraiser. She cranked out 970 cupcakes this year and has raised $3,000 - and counting - to honour a family member and her husband who passed away from cancer. Since she began, she's raised over $35,000!

My HEARTFELT thanks to everyone who supported my efforts. None of this would be possible without your GENEROUS contributions and I can't tell you how appreciative I am.
