Giving back is in our DNA

We’re owned by Allchurches Trust Limited (ATL), the third-largest registered charity in the United Kingdom. All our surplus profits are turned over to ATL for distribution to charities around the globe. Since 2013, we have donated almost $200 million CAD to organizations in Canada and abroad.

Community Impact Grant

Our Community Impact Grant is our signature Canadian giving program. These grants are made to specific projects that make a positive and sustained impact on the community, by benefiting youth, vulnerable and under-represented people or by supporting the preservation of Canadian heritage.

Volunteer culture

Our employees are encouraged to volunteer within their communities. Each staff member has a yearly company-sponsored day to participate in local charitable events. We match staff charitable contributions and will double the maximum limit of that matching contribution if they also volunteer at the organization.

Socially responsible leadership

Participants in our Business Associate Program are required to lend their time and business skills to community organizations and are placed with non-profit organizations for a minimum three-month period. This provides support to the charities and helps connect our employees to our communities.

Standing up for Canadian history & culture

We’re a proud sponsor of the Governor General’s History Award for Excellence in Museums: History Alive!, which is a partnership between the Canadian Museums Association (CMA) and Canada’s History Society (CHS).

We also support the National Trust for Canada by sponsoring the Ecclesiastical Insurance Cornerstone Awards, which bring national attention to exemplary projects and places that contribute to quality of life and sense of place and illustrate the viability of heritage buildings and sites for traditional or new uses.

In Vancouver, we proudly support the renowned theatre company Bard on the Beach by providing funding for their Bard in Your Neighborhood program. The program works with community partners to bring workshops to underserved children and youth at no cost.
