Supporting the financial health and well-being of our members is at the heart of what we do. We’re here to provide practical help and solutions to support your financial health, and the overall well-being of communities.

About the program

We have one priority — the financial well-being of our members.

We partner with community organizations willing to help make a meaningful difference in the financial well-being of our members, their families and communities. Together, we do this through programs and initiatives that promote financially healthy behaviours and a sense of satisfaction, confidence and emotional well-being related to money (or finances).


To qualify for support from Conexus, an initiative must align with our key priority — financial well-being — and meet our community investment guidelines. We support non-profit and charitable organizations.

Note: Conexus does not donate its financial products and services as part of our Community Investment Program. Conexus is committed to building strong relationships within our communities and offers charitable and not-profit community organizations free service charge accounts.

The following examples DO NOT qualify:

  • Individual pursuits
  • Conferences, symposiums, assemblies, trade shows or workshops
  • School funding other than financial literacy initiatives 
  • Playground funding
  • Daycare funding
  • Playschool funding
  • Team funding
  • Uniform funding
  • Equipment funding
  • Travel funding (within the province or otherwise)
