Volunteer associations are part of a long-standing tradition in Oikocredit’s work. In addition to being active volunteers for Oikocredit, Support Associations are members of the Oikocredit International co-operative.

Oikocredit Global Impact GIC

In Ontario, Oikocredit has teamed up with Kindred Credit Union to offer the Oikocredit Global Impact GIC.

This is available to any individual or institutional investor who is a member of the credit union. Investments in Kindred's Oikocredit Global Impact GIC are guaranteed by the Deposit Insurance Corporation of Ontario (DICO) and are eligible for non-registered investments and registered accounts in RRSPs, RRIFs and TFSAs. When members invest in the GIC, Kindred purchases shares in Oikocredit that match the principal amount, thereby providing funds to support impoverished communities across low-income countries.

For more information, visit Oikocredit Global Impact GIC. For information on membership, please contact Kindred Credit Union.
