In 2008, Greater Victoria Savings Credit Union, after many years of service in the Greater Victoria area, merged with Vancity Savings Credit Union. The GVSCU Legacy Foundation is an independent, endowed Foundation. It was incorporated in 2009 in commemoration of the Greater Victoria Savings Credit Union and its long history of charitable work in the Greater Victoria area. The funding for its endowment was provided by Vancity as part of the merger agreement. Its purpose is to provide grants to organizations engaged in non-profit endeavours in the area formerly served by the Greater Victoria Savings Credit Union in the Capital Regional District of British Columbia.
