Being rooted in the community, each Capital City Savings branch supports neighbourhood efforts in addition to larger corporate sponsorships. Community associations, schools, youth camps, emergency services and 4H Clubs have all benefited from branch initiatives. Branches also sponsor minor sports at the community level, including soccer, hockey, curling, figure skating, baseball and football.
