United Way Powerful Giving campaign
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 2021, our employees, contractors, and retirees raised funds that when combined with AltaLink’s donation results in a total donation of more than $1 million.
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.
The United Way of Calgary and Area selected AltaLink as the recipient of the 2020 President’s Award as part of its annual Community Impact Awards. The President’s Award honours exceptional contribution to the United Way and the local community. You can learn more about the President's Award and our 2020 Powerful Giving campaign here.
We couldn’t be prouder of the generous spirit of our employees and the difference their contributions make in Alberta’s communities.
