Grants of up to $5,000 to Manitoba nonprofit organizations, associations, societies, charities, cooperatives, and social enterprises in the funding source’s service area for capacity building projects. Eligible organizations are those that support social inclusion, environmental sustainability, and community enterprise development. Funding is intended to benefit Winnipeg and Northern Manitoba.

The Credit Union invests in organizations working in the following areas:
  • Community inclusion: Organizations working to increase the social and economic participation of marginalized members of the community such as Indigenous people, newcomers, disadvantaged women or youth and people living with disabilities. 
  • Environmental sustainability: Organizations working to create positive solutions to environmental concerns.
  • Community enterprise development: Cooperatives and social enterprises (revenue-generating businesses owned/operated by non-profits primarily for the purpose of achieving social, economic, cultural or environmental goals).

The Credit Union provides grants for projects such as:

  • Equipment. Examples: upgraded computers, office furniture, secure storage facilities
  • Planning. Examples: strategic plans, feasibility plans, community consultations
  • Public awareness. Examples: website redesign, video production, information and display materials
  • Professional development. Examples: leadership training, staff and board retreats, attendance at conferences and workshops

Preference will be given to active ACU members and smaller community organizations that don't have substantial operating budgets or many other sources of funding.
