The Airdrie Festival of Lights is a volunteer based, non-profit organization that was started in 1996.

Every year they put on one of Western Canada’s largest outdoor walkthrough Christmas light displays.

Michelle has been with them since 2006, running the festival and handling finance. Deeply rooted in the community, the Airdrie Festival of Lights has always called Bow Valley Credit Union it’s home.

Because the event offers the opportunity for other non-profit groups and community clubs to assist with the festival, AFOL pays it forward through donations to those in the community; it gives AFOL a unique perspective in the not for profit segment.

“You can tell that the commitment from the branch to its members is there every time you walk in the door.”

More than just a business bank account

BVCU has been able to assist the organization with e-transfers, online banking, wire-transfers, bank drafts, and anything else that is required for The Festival of Lights to get the products and services that they need to run the event.

“We recently set up our Platinum Savings Plan, which allows us to put some money aside for our future years, which ensures that we continue running on an ongoing basis. It’s been nice to have something out of sight, out of mind.”
