Giving back to the communities where we are located has always been important to Bonavista. We support a variety of organizations through sponsorship and volunteering both individually and corporately. In doing this, we strive to make our communities all together better through involvement. Below are some of the organizations supported by our team:
We are proud to be a long-standing supporter of the United Way raising over $1.8 million to improve the quality of life of Calgarians. Our employees regularly participate in campaigns to raise funds with an average of over 80% employee participation.
Habitat for Humanity
The foundation arranges volunteer house builds based on the concept that every family needs a safe and decent place to live. Our team regularly participates in these builds, usually once per year.
2013 Flood Relief
Every group in our head office participated in clean-up activities either in Calgary and/or High River.
Ronald McDonald House
RMH provides a home away from home for the families of seriously ill children who are staying at a nearby hospital. We volunteer our time to prepare dinner for these families, under the Home for Dinner program.
Raised funds to support the Light the Night Walk hosted by the Lymphoma and Leukemia Society of Canada.
We also participate in annual events focused on collecting food and donations for the Calgary Food Bank.
We engage in an employee charity matching program to match donations raised by employees for their charities of choice.
