Support for Community Partners

We’re temporarily loosening restrictions on present grant funding as well as extending final report deadlines to allow currently funded community partners the flexibility to focus on urgent priorities by repurposing funds to support emerging needs and general operating costs.

In 2019, we invested $6 million in our local communities.

We help empower youth to achieve what’s important in their lives by investing in programs that give youth a hand up and improve youth financial well-being.

So just by banking with us, you’re supporting youth in your communities too. Learn how we make an impact and check out our 2019 Annual Report.

How can we help youth?

Every year, Coast Capital invests 10% of our budgeted bottom line back into our communities with a focus on youth. Since 2000, that's more than $83 million.

Because many youth face more than their share of challenges on their journey to financial independence, Coast Capital Savings strategically invests and works alongside our community partners to break down the barriers that young people face.

We believe that helping young Canadians achieve financial independence will spark a hand up movement. By tapping into the creative energy of youth and their drive to build a better future, we aim to empower youth to become change-makers and inspire them to pay it forward.

Through our Youth Community Investment Program, we focus our support on helping youth:

  • build a strong financial future
  • succeed during their school years
  • prepare for the world of work
  • address basic, social, emotional and physical needs (unless we remove these barriers, it’s doubly difficult for youth to focus on their finances)
