Concern for Community: 18 Credit Union Initiatives Receive a Financial Boost from Concentra

Each spring, Concentra solicits applications from credit unions across Canada, to assist them in fulfilling local initiatives. Concentra received 57 submissions in this year’s emPOWERING Your Communities campaign.

“Our staff selection committee is always impressed with the value and variety of the credit union-led projects that were put forth in the applications,” said Corina Farbacher, Senior Vice President, Governance, Compliance & Legal. “It is difficult to narrow the field down,” she continued, “however we are pleased - and honoured - to announce the following recipients for 2015”:

  • Assiniboine Credit Union
  • Bergengren Credit Union
  • Caisse Financial Group
  • Conexus Credit Union
  • Copperfin Credit Union
  • Cornerstone Credit Union
  • East Coast Credit Union
  • Encompass Credit Union
  • Integris Credit Union
  • LeRoy Credit Union
  • Luminus Financial
  • North Valley Credit Union
  • Northern Lights Credit Union
  • Oak Bank Credit Union
  • Revelstoke Credit Union
  • Unity Credit Union
  • Winnipeg Police Credit Union
  • Your Credit Union

Each of the above will receive $10,000. This means that as part of this campaign, Concentra has contributed in excess of three quarters of a million dollars to date. “Concentra is proud to support credit union commitment to community,” said Farbacher and added that, “we look forward to hearing about how the various projects take shape.”
