In Our Community

TCU Financial Group is committed to providing support to the communities in which we live and work. TCU will lead by example and use our resources to affect positive change in our communities. To achieve strong community relationships, TCU offers sponsorships and donations to those community organizations, activities and events that meet its guidelines.

OUR FOCUS

A Brighter Future

TCU embraces a community that is accessible and engaging for everyone, especially children, as they are our future. TCU is committed to provide essential opportunities for children to grow emotionally, intellectually and athletically.

Our Goals:

  • Improve access to community services and resources
  • Improve access to early childhood learning and development
  • Help children do well in school and extracurricular activities

TCU will not enter partnerships or support events that:

  • Provide benefits or profits directly to individuals
  • Promote political organizations or political points of view

Requests are considered against TCU Financial Group’s sponsorship and donation budget and its current and continuing commitments. Organizations we have worked with can be found on Our Partners page.

Corporate Funding Requests ($5,000+)
Applications can be emailed to sponsorships@tcu.sk.ca by November 30th of each year to be considered for funding for the following year. In general, TCU Financial Group follows a "three-year on, two-year off" guideline that promotes a more equitable distribution of funds. Under this guideline, groups may receive funding for up to three consecutive years and then are not eligible to re-apply for two years. Year-to-year funding is not guaranteed under this guideline, as groups must apply annually for consideration.

All Other Requests
Email community@tcu.sk.ca or drop off information at your nearest branch with the submission criteria below (we ask that requests are submitted at least 6 weeks prior to your event for full consideration).

Submission Criteria
The following criteria should accompany all sponsorship and donation requests:

  • A description of your event or project
  • Why you believe TCU Financial Group and your organization share similarities
