Birdies for Kids

AltaLink is proud to announce its new community partnership with the Shaw Charity Classic’s Birdies for Kids. This new partnership focuses on rural and Aboriginal youth, providing funding to agencies with a focus on youth.

Alberta 4-H

Partnering with Alberta 4-H gives AltaLink the opportunity to support rural Alberta, the area in which a large part of our operations take place. We find tremendous value in being able to give back to the communities in which we work.

AltaLink has been a sponsor of Alberta 4-H since 2005. Currently, AltaLink is a Legacy Builder sponsor and is the title sponsor of all regional, district, and provincial communications and public speaking programs.

United Way Powerful Giving campaign

AltaLink’s annual Powerful Giving campaign supports United Way agencies and other registered charities across Alberta. AltaLink has been holding this annual campaign since 2002 and is proud to have raised about $5 million to support the communities where we live and operate.

AltaLink's Powerful Giving campaign is held annually in the fall with the goal of helping employees make an informed decision about donating to the United Way or a registered charity of their choice. Thanks to the generous spirit of our employees the campaign is always a huge success. In 2015, our employees and contractors raised more than $320,000. AltaLink’s shareholders matched this amount dollar for dollar to bring the total donation up to more than $650,000!

Part of the campaign also involves employees coming together to learn about the struggles of Albertans in need. In the past we have organized awareness activities, including volunteering at the Calgary Drop-in Centre, participating in a poverty simulation event hosted by United Way and inviting various inspirational speakers to discuss the hard-hitting reality of poverty in Alberta .

We couldn’t be prouder of the generous spirit of our employees and the difference their contributions make in Alberta’s communities.
