Social Mission
We’ve set our sights on making an impact in four key areas:
• Empowering Parents with young children
• Supporting mental wellness through all stages of life
• Maintaining social connection with age
• Supporting a strong cooperative local economy
Together, we’re helping to build and support communities where people are welcomed, encouraged, supported and cared for. Where everyone can find the connections, confidence, and skills to not only enjoy life but fulfill their potential too.

Interior Savings financial and staff support for the KidZone at the 2017 West Kelowna World Music Festival provided opportunities for kids to engage with music, art and physical activities. This year activities featured drum workshops, Indigenous First Nations interactive storytelling, circus yoga, visual art workshops led by the Suk'ʷTəmsqilxʷ West Kelowna Arts Council and two bouncy houses. All experienced while being exposed to music from various cultural traditions represented in our community on our main stage!

Interior Savings celebrated its commitment to the community on October 20th, 2017 by closing their branches at 2pm to allow employees to volunteer in their community. COHS was lucky to be chosen as one of the recipients of this much needed volunteer work in Benvoulin Heritage Park. Interior Savings volunteers, along with COHS Board members weeded and cleaned up a section of the xeriscape garden and the driveway into the park. Thank you Interior Savings for giving back to the community!

Interior Savings is a community champion. They continue to be a leader in the community as is evident by their community mantra: "We measure success by the success of our members and the strength of the communities we live in together. Simply, we’re here to help our members create more local money. Because the more we create together, the more vibrant our economy and our communities become." They walk the talk. We are so very proud to be a valued partner of such a wonderful organization!

Huge thanks to Interior Savings for their generous donation towards much needed play-based equipment! This will contribute to the healthy development of children who attend our free Family Play Time program, and four of our child care centres around the Okanagan- also, it will up the fun factor for these kids! 😊

“Investments in our community are especially critical right now”, says Kathy Conway, CEO of Interior Savings. “2020 has been a difficult year, particularly for young families. We are inspired by the Y’s commitment and ingenuity as they adapt their programming to continue helping families while creating opportunities for children to grow, explore and thrive. We are pleased to lend our support.”

We cannot thank the credit union enough and continue to be impressed by their dedication to bettering our community. ❤

Community Investment Fund recipient #3

YMCA of Okanagan Association is expanding their playing to learn curriculum to the outdoors of their care centres at Little Scholars (Okanagan College), Young Parents Program (Kelowna Secondary School), Queen’s Park (Penticton) and the new Dilworth Mountain Child Care Centre.

Using the outdoor space as an extension of the classroom, they’ll create safe play areas that incorporate natural and interactive learning elements for children to explore and develop their literacy skills. Learning in the natural environment positively impacts their health and wellness, and gives care providers another avenue to make learning fun. We all know how much more motivating it is when learning is fun.

To assist with this expansion, Interior Savings provided funding in the amount of $20,000 to allow for the purchase of outdoor educational elements and learning materials such as: outdoor art easels, musical instruments, science experiment equipment, mud kitchens, movable construction elements and natural seating. Not only will this investment help children build their literacy skills but also begin to foster an appreciation for the outdoors and its impact on one’s wellbeing. The expansion is expected to launch in the spring of 2021.
We're committed to giving back to the community!
