Valley First


Celebrating community leadership

Simple Generosity began in recognition of Canada 150 – Valley First celebrated community leadership across BC by recognizing local volunteers, non-profit organizations and charities that are making meaningful contributions in our communities.

We were so inspired by the amazing stories that we are continuing to spread Simple Generosity in our communities in 2019 and celebrating community leadership, volunteerism and simple ideas that help our communities thrive!


Volunteer Awards

We’re selecting 40 volunteers and empowering them to make a $1,000 donation, courtesy of First West Credit Union, to the non-profit of their choice.

Neighbourhood Grants

We are gifting $60,000 in #SimpleGenerosity neighbourhood grants to local grassroots ideas, events and initiatives focused on building stronger and more connected communities.


The stories behind #SimpleGenerosity

Behind every dollar awarded there is a story of inspiration and generosity. We’re proud to share these stories – stories of your community – with you.
