Vancity Enviro Fund: Investing in Living Lighter
From 2018-2022, Vancity envirofund™ will be invested in projects that make it easier for us all to live lighter and preserve the earth’s resources for future generations.
Our 5 year focus
A five year focus allows us to create true systemic change and greater access for future growth in our communities. Previously, the five year focus for the Vancity enviroFund™ program was to support the development of a sustainable local food system. Vancity enviro™ Visa cardholders raised $5 million that we invested into 150 local food projects Local food continues to be supported through other Vancity granting streams, but now we have an opportunity to support another area: lighter living initiatives that encourage us all to consume less, waste less, live more and share more.
If the project falls under one of the three priority areas:
- Community Sustainability Projects
- Strategic sectoral and systemic initiatives
- Public Advocacy and Education
