Crossroads Community Investment Fund   
Building a strong foundation for our communities to build upon. 

What is the Crossroads Community Investment Fund?

The Crossroads Community Investment Fund (CIF) was established in 2009. Each year funds are allocated to non-profit organizations that support community development. The purpose of the Community Investment Fund is to provide a strong foundation to build upon and enhance the quality of life for the people in Crossroads Country

Each year a set amount of funding is allocated towards the fund at which time the CIF committee meets and discusses how the funds will be allocated for the year.  The program opens for applications in June and closes August 31 of each year.

In the past 13 years the fund has allocated over $470,000 to more than 130 community projects and initiatives!

We are proud of our cooperative roots and helping our communities will always be a priority.

It's about grassroots, hometowns and cooperation. That's the Credit Union Difference.

What are the eligibly requirements?

The non-profit organization/community group supports the development of our communities and/or development and implementation of programs that support the people in Crossroads Country.

The non-profit organization/community group must support one of the following areas:
    • Youth
    • Education
    • Community, Economic, Co-operative or Environmental Development
