At Revelstoke Credit Union, one of the many ways we help in building a vibrant, healthy city is through the Community Giving Program. We care about what happens in Revelstoke because we love this city, and we’re inspired by all the organizations that work to make it great. We serve the people from several different sectors
of the community daily who give us insight on the best ways to help create lasting legacies and programs that make an impact in Revelstoke today and for generations to come.
Over the past 17 years, Revelstoke Credit Union has returned nearly $5.8 million to local initiatives, including in the past two years, over $200,000 in donations to capital infrastructure projects throughout the city. These funds have gone to support heritage, recreation, medical services, the social, arts, sports sectors of Revelstoke.
We are doing our best to ensure programs and services can be accessed by those in need, so we can all contribute to strengthening the core of our community.
