Our spirit of giving lives within the communities we serve and there is a special place in our hearts for schools, families, veterans, and first responders. That’s why in 2016 we established the Canvas Foundation.
Our goal is to support and nurture these critical areas, to leave a lasting footprint in our neighborhoods. Our Foundation offers scholarships to students to further their education, and we provide grants to local schools and non-profit organizations that have demonstrated strong character and leadership. We also host and support local charitable activities and programs that reflect the interests of the communities we serve.
Our efforts create a long-term relationship helping the Canvas Foundation to continue supporting our schools, families, veterans, and first responders in our communities.
Canvas Foundation is an independent 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. Our unpaid Board is made up of Canvas Credit Union, formerly Public Service Credit Union, employees who are committed to the mission and goals of The Foundation.
Canvas Giving Initiatives. Our organization embraces giving initiatives that focus on schools, family, veterans, and first responders throughout Colorado.
Branch Community Donations. We value our neighborhoods, it's where we live and work. That's why we enable each Canvas Branch location to give directly to their community.
Children’s Hospital Colorado. Along with the Credit Unions for Kids organization, and the Children’s Miracle Network, we raise funds throughout the year to help kids in need.
