Fund Guidelines

We proudly put our financial resources to work where it matters: in the communities where our members live and work, investing in activities and projects that are important to them.

We’re proud to support local groups and organizations that make real and lasting positive impacts in the communities where we have a presence.

Potential recipients in the Portuguese Canadian community should be mindful of the following guidelines.
  • Preference for grants and donations will be given to registered charities, organizations or associations that have an existing business relationship with our credit union through any of its branches in the Greater Toronto Area, or the likelihood of establishing one in the future.
  • The recipient must operate in the surrounding community where our credit union does business. Click here for our locations.
  • If the recipient does not, then the recommended project or activity must demonstrate value to the Portuguese Canadian community.
  • Preference will be given to organizations with local chapters, not national or international offices.
  • Funds will be allocated to direct-impact and community-based services and programs only, not for advertising or promotional campaigns or events like sport or golf tournaments or conferences.
  • The recipient cannot already raise funds for a charity, or be a private foundation.
  • Whenever possible, the recipient should provide financial statements and information about its governance practices.
