Bruce Power Commits Millions To Local Health And Education ProjectsMarch 14, 2018 4:38am
Bruce Power has earmarked $2-million for health care, mental health and education initiatives.
The company’s Corporate Social Responsibility Program invests $1.6-million annually into organizations, nonprofits, and events that positively impact health and wellness, Indigenous peoples, youth development, community, environment, and military, veterans and first responders.
This is in addition to employees, suppliers and unions connected with Bruce Power, all of whom raised an additional $1-million in 2017 for various fundraising initiatives.
Last week, Bruce Power also announced its Indigenous Community Investment Fund, which will focus $400,000 in 2018 on initiatives important to local Indigenous communities.
“Some of the most important issues for families in the community are the quality of health care and education, so we have decided to focus a significant portion of our Community Investment and Sponsorship budget on those areas over the next five years, so local organizations can continue to provide the best care for our community,” said Mike Rencheck, Bruce Power’s president and CEO. “By focusing the $2-million locally, the program will continue to make a positive impact on the communities, organizations and people of Bruce, Grey and Huron counties, and we encourage everyone to submit their applications for 2019 funding by September 15, 2018.”
