Bank has interest in helping Big Brothers

Canadian Western Bank announced this year’s Greater Interest GIC campaign to raise money for Big Brothers Big Sisters.

When Canadian Western Bank comes up with a fundraising idea, it brings its financial planning expertise to the table. The bank announced this year’s Greater Interest GIC campaign to raise money for Big Brothers Big Sisters of Central Vancouver Island.

The guaranteed investment certificate campaign started last month and continues until the end of this month.

Based on every dollar that is invested in the Greater Interest GIC, Canadian Western Bank will make a donation of one-eighth per cent to Big Brothers Big Sisters of Central Vancouver Island.

“Clients will receive a great rate on their investment while also making a difference for kids in our community. It’s a win-win,” said Anita Smith of Canadian Western Bank.

The campaign began in 2008. To date, Canadian Western Bank has donated over $34,000 to the local Big Brothers Big Sisters chapter and across Western Canada, the bank has donated over $1.2 million to Big Brothers Big Sisters agencies.
