How to apply
Island Savings accepts applications from community groups and organizations with initiatives that help to improve families’ quality of life and build strong communities within regions with an Island Savings presence. Click here for examples of the types of initiatives our GIFT program supports.
Applications for financial assistance are reviewed annually by our GIFT committees at each of our locations. The application deadline is March 14, 2014. Please drop off or mail your application to the Island Savings in the community closest to where the support is requested. Please do not forward multiple copies of your application to different Island Savings locations.

Due to high demand, and the time required to coordinate our volunteer services, it is recommended that applications be submitted a minimum of 6-8 weeks in advance of your community event.
