The club is involved in local projects and distributes grants: High Schools Student Bursaries, North Island College Student Bursary, Coal Hills BMX, the Courtenay Recreational Association, Sid Williams Theatre, Child Development Association, CV Therapeutic Riding, Boys and Girls Club, Santa’s Workshop, Senior Peer Counselling, Relay For Life, Comox Valley Hospice, St. Joseph’s Hospital Foundation, Glacier View Lodge, Courtenay Low Income Housing, Salvation Army, CV Community Foundation, Sonshine Lunch Club, Courtenay Museum, Food Bank, Comox Valley Search and Rescue, Comox Bay Care-a-Van and other donations within the community.
