​Giving back to the communities we work within

As a community-based and member-owned credit union, G&F Financial Group* is committed to doing business in a way that contributes to the social, economic and environmental well-being of the communities we serve.

In 2019, we gave over $765,000 to local community partners, charity groups, cultural and sports organizations, and students.

This was made possible through the collective efforts of the Board of Directors, our employees, members, and the G&F Financial Group Foundation.

Through the G&F Financial Group Foundation, we supported 17 organizations around Metro Vancouver. Funds were directed toward a variety of purposes, including skills development and housing for persons with mental health issues, meals for the elderly, a new playground, bedding and supplies for at-risk youth, and kitchen renovations at a community hub.

We donated funds to the BC Children’s Hospital Foundation, United Way of the Lower Mainland and The Centre for Child Development; organizations that we see as having a significant impact on community health and well-being.

We led financial literacy workshops and seminars in community centres and schools—empowering new Canadians and others to manage their finances and prepare for a better future.

Our growth and success is not only ours. It is yours too.

Financial literacy sessions in your community

G&F Financial Group is active in communities around Metro Vancouver. We visit high schools, community centres, and libraries, teaching financial literacy to people of all ages and walks of life.

We are inspired by people in our communities, by their hopes and dreams for the future. We believe financial literacy is critical to the prosperity and financial well-being of all Canadians. By sharing our knowledge, we help people achieve their own bright horizons and live successful lives, beyond banking.

Our financial literacy sessions are interactive and tailored to meet the specific needs of those attending each session. The content relates to current and relevant topics. Our presenters are focused on sharing information—not promoting products. 

During these sessions we provide education on financial topics related to students, adults, families, entrepreneurs and business owners.

Topics include:
