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 approximately $10.5 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 2022, our employees, contractors, and retirees raised funds that, when combined with AltaLink’s charitable match, results in a total donation of more than $900,000.
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.
