Credit unions are about people helping people. At Moya Financial, we take that philosophy one step further by giving back to our Slovenian community. Community giving is an enhanced core value that distinguishes our credit union, setting us apart from other financial institutions. It is the strength of community leadership that guarantees results that will last a lifetime.
Our community is important to us.
With similar goals in mind as prior years, we stepped up our game and introduced the Moya Summer Tour as well as hosted two beehives at our Main Branch. We plan to expand our community giving with a Heritage Fund, an initiative dedicated to honouring our members’ legacy through a scholarship provided to our youth. Stay tuned for further details in 2020!

Community is important to Moya Financial, and each year we strive to support our members and events within the Slovenian-Canadian community in Ontario. We are proud to support our community, our members, and our staff. By giving back each year through a variety of community organizations and events we are reminded that we are truly a part of our community and that what we do matters.
