AltaLink is committed to developing new approaches to corporate giving and establishing strategic alliances with non-profit partners in the communities in which we live and operate.
AltaLink and its employees support organizations and programs such as Alberta 4-H, and WordFest: Banff-Calgary International Writers Festival. We are particularly proud of our annual Powerful Giving campaign, which supports the United Way and registered charities across Alberta. AltaLink has held the Powerful Giving campaign annually since the company was established in 2002, raising more than $3 million.
In 2013 alone, AltaLink raised more than $600,000 for Alberta charities - a tremendous commitment to giving by a company of approximately 800 people.
AltaLink was on the front lines restoring power and supporting cleanup efforts in Calgary and across southern Alberta. Our employees volunteered in their communities, filled donation boxes for the Calgary Food Bank and raised $19,655, which AltaLink matched, donating $39,310 to the Red Cross.
In addition, AltaLink donated $100,000 to the Calgary Foundation's Flood Rebuilding Fund. Read more about it here.
