Our Community Giving Programs

We consider it our responsibility to make a positive impact in the communities we serve.


Infrastructure Grants

Qualifying projects are upgrading, enhancing, renovating, or constructing a community’s publicly owned asset that will benefit the community’s future through sustainability, accessibility, health, safety and security. Contact your local Western branch to find out how to submit a nomination.


STC Local Fundraising Program

Running from January to September, our local community teams will select a charity to support for the year through fundraising efforts. 100% of funds raised will go to their approved charity. Charities selected by teams must fall under one of our giving pillars and guidelines.


Western Inspirational Bursary Awards

Recipients of this bursary award have overcome adversity and/or hardships such as mental health, physical disability, bullying/harassment, discrimination, financial hardship, family issues, etc. while still showing kindness, determination and courage to be able to graduate high school and look towards their post-secondary learning. 

Our Communities Foundation is proud to have Western team members at the front line of our community givebacks. Western team members submit all applications in support of the community projects they care about. If you are an organization or charity looking for support, contact your local Western Financial Group or affiliate brokerage to learn more about our Communities Foundation programs.

Give Back to a Community

Help us make a difference in your community by donating to your local team's fundraising efforts.

Our Purpose

Since the beginning, caring for our local communities has guided all our actions. We are committed to investing in and supporting the communities where we proudly live, work, and play. Giving back is at the core of who we are. We are proud community builders, and we are dedicated to partnering with our team members and business partners to help build strong and vibrant communities in Canada.
