The Hot Potato Initiative is proud to be powered by Coast Capital Savings. Their financial support makes our projects possible and—in doing so—empowers young Canadians to take part in the national conversation about homelessness, socioeconomic inequality, and systems change.


Coast Capital Savings is Canada’s largest credit union by membership and, in 2018, made history becoming B.C.’s first federal credit union. Owned by its 593,000 members, Coast Capital offers banking and investment services digitally and through its 52 branches in the Metro Vancouver, Fraser Valley, Okanagan, and Vancouver Island regions of British Columbia.

An Imagine Canada Caring Company and a Certified B Corporation in recognition of its social performance, Coast Capital invests 10 percent of its bottom line in youth focused community organizations, programs, partnerships and events.

The credit union has been recognized as one of Canada's Most Admired Corporate Cultures™, and holds a Best Managed Companies Platinum Club designation.
