SASCU Community Endowment Fund

SASCU Community Endowment Fund Supports the Shuswap

Giving back to the community is an important part of what we do at SASCU. In the spring of 2009, the SASCU Board of Directors decided to take this commitment a step further. A community endowment fund in support of environmental projects was established – a new fund that will grow in perpetuity with the earned interest invested back into the community each year, forever.

In December 2017, the Board approved an amendment to expand the parameters of the projects that may benefit from the fund. Now included are initiatives that provide access to health or education based opportunities.

SASCU members can be proud of the local projects that have benefitted our communities, the latest included:

  • Family Resource and Referral Society - Irrigation for community garden on 30th Ave NE: $2231
  • Shuswap Trail Alliance - Trail Mix, a guide to trails:  $2312
