Capital Projects for 2023

Community Giving Capital Projects stream of funds go toward long-lasting projects that affect a broad range of community members.

Community Impact

In March 2023, a portion of profits from the 2022 fiscal year will be disbursed.  The RevCU Community Giving Program will pay out $75,000 in donations to community groups with an additional $75,000 for long lasting community improving Capital Projects.  In addition, we paid back $200,000 to our customers in Member Rewards and dividends in February.

We feel strongly about supporting our Community, hence our label of "Community Partner". Credit Unions are industry leaders in community donations, sponsorship and volunteerism. Revelstoke Credit Union has distributed nearly $7.5 million to Members and the community since the year 2000.  RCU does not exist for profits alone but for the prosperity of Revelstoke and community, this is achieved by acting as an agent of social change through economic support in the community while also leading by example.
