As part of the Power Corporation group of companies, we hold a deep commitment to and are aware of our responsibility towards the communities in which we operate, our fellow citizens and the natural environment. Our community investments reflect the Corporation’s deeply held values that have shaped and continue to guide us in making positive contributions to society. These values of respect, responsibility, integrity, hard work, and courage define our charitable contributions and reflect the strong social commitment we hold to our local communities, as well as to the larger society.
Through Power Corporation, our parent company, and our subsidiaries, we contribute to numerous organizations with corporate donations, community engagement and investments, as well as support employee volunteering initiatives. These community-based organizations are located across Canada and play an integral role in helping people in need, providing better healthcare to those in need, protecting the environment, or introducing people to new educational, artistic and cultural experiences.
We believe in the ability of the voluntary sector, working in partnership with governments and businesses, to build a better society with better opportunities for all Canadians. As business entrepreneurs, we value and support the role that social entrepreneurs play in helping to build strong and connected communities - those driven to champion their cause and devote their lives to the service of others. This is why we are often drawn to smaller initiatives that deliver broad social benefit because of their entrepreneurial, innovative spirit.
These philanthropic values are shared across the Power Corporation group of companies, and we encourage and support all employees who volunteer their time or who charitably give to causes dear to their hearts. Through their respective community programs and initiatives, as well as employee volunteering activities, companies in our group work diligently to make a difference in the communities they serve.
In dedication to these organizations, our parent company established a community investment microsite, Power Corporation in the Community, in the hope of highlighting the exceptional work being done to help thousands every day. We invite you to visit this community microsite and hope these organizations’ stories inspire you to make your own contribution to building a healthy and strong society. Community-based organizations can also submit their donation requests directly through the Website.
