Valley First’s partnership with Kelowna United


At Valley First, our focus is on making a difference financial lives of members and Valley First is also deeply committed to making a meaningful difference in our local communities. That means developing partnerships with groups and organizations like Kelowna United Football Club.

Valley First’s sponsorship of Kelowna United began in 2015 as part of our social mandate to support and encourage the development of young leaders, particularly through health and fitness.valleyfirstcorey

The funds we provide to Kelowna United support equipment upgrades and programs and the Kelowna United Hardship Fund.

We know it is important to not only support but also recognize and celebrate our youth. That’s why in 2016 we created the Valley First Kelowna United Youth Excellence Awards to honour players who were exhibiting leadership qualities on and off the field.

Valley First is proud of the leadership it provides in the community as a premier provider of banking, investment and insurance services for residents and businesses in the Okanagan, Similkameen and Thompson valleys. As a division of First West Credit Union, B.C.’s third-largest credit union with 54 branches and 38 insurance offices throughout the province, Valley First brings innovative products, an extensive branch network and local decision making to the banking experience. We also create programs that create positive impact for our neighbours. In March 2010 we created Feed the Valley. Since its inception, Feed the Valley, along with generous community partners and members, has raised more than $1 million and 71,000 lbs of food for local food banks.
