Sharing $1.6 million in special community funding

Giving back to our communities

We had exceptional financial results in 2022. That success let us allocate $1.6 million in one-time special funding to give back to communities across the islands.

Here's the details:

  • The special funding benefited community initiatives and causes across the islands;
  • The one-time funding was distributed throughout 2023;
  • Members had a voice in the process through a Community Giving member survey;
  • Key areas to support included health care, housing, mental health, financial education and food security;
  • We also directly supported many community initiatives aligned with our focus areas;
  • Some funds were used to boost the 2023 budgets of our existing Building Healthier Communities Fund and Community Investment programs, and
  • Some one-time programs were created to help improve the financial health of our members, clients and communities.

Spotlighting some community causes we supported

Here are a few of the organizations we supported with the $1.6 million in one-time special community funding.


A home for North Island families who travel for healthcare

“A big thank you to Coastal Community for their $50,000 donation to the Just Like Home lodge at Campbell River Hospital. It will be a 10-room lodge with communal kitchen and laundry facilities, a communal sitting room and dining room. We’re looking forward to having this project complete for those people who have to travel to Campbell River.”

- Stacey Marsh, Executive Director, Campbell River Hospital Foundation

$100,000 to ease housing crisis in North Island

“Coastal Community’s funds will go towards a multi-unit development project at 461 Hilchey Road in Campbell River. It’s beyond generous. This infusion of financial support from CCCU not only bolsters our ongoing fundraising initiatives but highlights their commitment to the community and brings us closer to our goal of breaking ground and placing families into new, affordable homes on the island.”

- Stefano Tromba, Communications Director
