Bruce Power has a very active Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) Program consisting of a number of key elements, including health and wellness, environment and sustainability, the Indigenous Community Investment Fund, youth and education, scholarship programs and community events.
In 2018, Bruce Power announced it was planning its giving program over a four-year period, from 2019-23, based on feedback from charitable and volunteer organizations so they could better plan over the long term.
Understanding the need for organizations to plan, about 85 per cent of our annual budget has been allocated through this period, with a significant long-term commitment to health care, mental health and education initiatives in our region. This totals $8 million in contributions to these areas collectively over the 2019-23 period. These were all formally applied for by the requested deadline of Sept. 30, 2018, and reviewed and approved by the company’s CSR Committee.
Therefore, the company will not be accepting any further large sponsorship requests until September 2023.
However, the company is accepting proposals to support small community events under $1,000 in value. These applications can be made online between May 1 and Sept. 15 each year.
In addition, the company is pleased to consider prizes or raffle items for fundraising events. If you would like to request an in-kind donation please contact Christine John at firstname.lastname@example.org.
