Good Money supports sustainable organizations now so that we will all be better off in the future.

Vancity invests in businesses, not-for-profits and sector initiatives that are focused on local and organic food – in order to grow and promote a viable and sustainable local food system. One that contributes to a healthier environment, improved individual health, and a more resilient local economy.

By supporting the local retail/food service sector, producers, processors and manufacturers, wholesalers, distributors, and waste management businesses, we invest in organizations to make a difference.

We also know it is important to support partnerships in the community that are working towards increased sustainability – such as our partnership with Feast of Fields. We are pleased to support FarmFolk CityFolk and its important work developing a sustainable local food system.

As a financial institution, how we invest and operate affects your community’s well-being. It’s a responsibility that we take seriously. That’s why our values-based banking model is grounded in the local economy—because we believe you only truly prosper when you’re connected to a vibrant, healthy community.

At Vancity members’ deposits are used to lend to and invest in local businesses, organizations, and initiatives that create positive economic, social, and environmental impacts in your community. That way, we can grow our members’ wealth while making a difference in areas such as creating jobs, reducing greenhouse gases and increasing local food production and sales.
