We Care Here So We Share Here

As a cooperative structure, Lake View Credit Union lives the values of caring and sharing where we live and work. We dedicate a tremendous amount of human and financial resources to projects and causes in all three of the communities where we are located.


We are lucky to live in an area where groups and communities rally together to overcome formidable problems and achieve life-altering results. Our NEW (starting January 2016) Community Social Responsibility Fund is overseen by a committee comprised of LVCU Directors and LVCU Staff members. The Committee will endeavor to support community programs and projects that support Lake View Credit Union’s mission of enriching our members’ lives and improving the social benefit and well being of our communities. We embrace the concept of partnership, rather than sponsorship, where there is value for all parties.

This program is designed for larger requests that fall outside of the community groups asking for small cash or in-kind donations. Applications can be submitted for any funding amount up to $10,000/group.

For small cash or in-kind donations, please apply as in the past using a written letter. 


Requests made by completing the CSRF (Community Social Responsibility Fund) Application Form or pick up a copy from any LVCU branch. Applications can be submitted to the CSRF Committee at any time of the year. The Committee will meet twice annually. Applicants selected to the finalist list will be responsible to present their idea in a short presentation to the Committee.


Print the Application Form or pick up a copy from any LVCU branch, supporting materials may be attached. Your applications forms must be submitted in person, to your closest branch of LVCU, or alternatively emailed to  Envelopes submitted in branches should be addressed to the Community Social Responsibility Fund Committee, Dawson Creek branch. Please note that the quality of your application will be extremely important in the Committee’s decision. Applicants selected to the finalist list will be responsible to present their idea in a short presentation to the CSRF Committee. If your application is chosen as a finalist, you will be contacted with instructions prior to the presentation.

THE 2017 COMMUNITY SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY FUND IS NOW CLOSED TO APPLICATIONS. Please note if you do apply, your application will be brought forward to the committee for Spring 2018.
