In Our Community
Since 1950, East Kootenay Community Credit Union (EKC) has helped our communities grow by understanding our East Kootenay economy and our passion for lifestyle. We are a financial institution, with a financial planning and insurance division, committed to making the communities we serve better places to live.
This commitment goes beyond the volunteer efforts of staff and the worthwhile endeavors we support in our communities. In fact, we take pride in demonstrating to our members that the same kind of caring and dedication that goes into what we do in the community also takes place at the branch level and is at the very heart of our relationship with the members we serve.
Last year EKC staff, management and the board of directors donated $100,000 and numerous volunteer hours.
EKC supports over 60 organizations annually and our staff and Board of Directors volunteer in 55 different groups. We support the numerous organizations and individuals who give countless hours and donations to make our East Kootenay communities such a great place.
- Each year EKC offer the proceeds of two puck tosses at the Kootenay ICE games. These offer great exposure and money to support a community group.
- Please talk to your branch manager if you are interested in participating in corporate sponsorship.
