We believe in actively participating in and supporting the communities where we live and work. From annual United Way campaigns to local Food Bank drives and Adopt-A-Family programs at Christmas, our goal is to give back and build stronger communities.
A robust recycling program—including wood, drywall, aluminum, steel, beverage containers, etc.—diverts tonnes of waste from landfills each year. It also enables us to redirect the money made from the program back into the community. Since the program’s inception in 2015, we’ve contributed over $1 million through community investments and sponsorships to over 40 local organizations (as of 2023).
Our goal is to support as many great causes as we can through our programs. Preference is given to local organizations in Sturgeon County and the broader Heartland region, as well as organizations where our NWR employees provide active volunteer support or service.
Our funding is focused on the following five areas:
By supporting programs and activities that focus on our five chosen priorities, we help achieve our goal of stronger, more resilient communities. Our support is done through two funding programs:
Please note: Two sports/recreation teams per year will qualify for funding through our funding programs.
We have two application deadlines for community funding. These deadlines apply to both event sponsorships and community investments.
The application form is the same for both event sponsorships and community investments. Please send your completed application form and any supporting documentation to firstname.lastname@example.org. Questions about the process? Please let us know by sending any inquiries to email@example.com.
