For this week’s Vancouver Giants Community Partner Profile. we are pleased to highlight the team at Envision Financial. To learn more about Envision Financial’s mission and purpose, please explore the Q & A posted below.
1) Tell us about the “mission” of your business as it pertains to your customers and the community organizations that you sponsor and support?
Envision Financial has a longstanding tradition of supporting charities, organizations and events in the communities we serve, and we pride ourselves on simplifying lives, helping our members and the community thrive. Every year we make contributions to our local communities through partnerships, donations, and gifts-in-kind to many worthwhile causes and we’re proud to partner with great organizations like the Vancouver Giants.
2) How long have you been partnering with the Vancouver Giants? Why is this partnership important to you?
Envision Financial has been partnering with the Vancouver Giants for four years now. Our partnership allows us to engage with the community and families that attend the games, and let them know how we can provide simple banking for their whole family.
3) Do you have a favourite Vancouver Giants player/memory?
It’s impossible to choose just one, but some of our favourite moments have been working with Jack the Giant during on-ice intermission contests and games, and seeing the fans’ incredibly generous response to The Full Cupboard, our community initiative that raises food, funds, and awareness for hunger in our communities.
4) What do you want your customers/our fans to know about the current state of your business?
We’re here for you. As the COVID-19 situation evolves, our top priority is the health and well-being of our members, employees and communities. We will continue providing the essential banking services you need and the expert financial advice you rely on through these times of uncertainty, while also doing our part to keep our communities safe.
In addition to doing our part to keep our members and employees safe during COVID-19, we’ve taken swift action to protect some of the most vulnerable people in our communities. First West Credit Union, of which Envision Financial is a division, has committed $285,073 in community investment dollars to organizations that are supporting COVID-19 relief efforts. This includes $64,450 in COVID-19 relief efforts in the Envision Financial region and $220,623 in funding to local non-profit and charitable partners.
Together with you, we’re able to make an incredible difference in the lives of people right here at home throughout the year. We do this by giving to causes and charities that help our communities thrive.
