EPCOR Heart + Soul Applications are now closed.

Earlier this year, EPCOR announced a new $1.25 million grant program to support community recovery from the impacts of the pandemic. We received tremendous interest from arts, culture and charities over the past 3 months and were able to fund nearly 50 programs.

We appreciate everyone who took the time to apply and also spread the word to deserving arts and charity organizations.

Over 150 applications were received. We are currently reviewing the last round of applications. The final grants be announced very soon.

Thank you to everyone who applied!

Investing an additional $2M in our communities 

At EPCOR, we are deeply inspired by the communities where we operate. We are proud to call Edmonton our home and believe we have a responsibility to help ensure our city remains strong and vibrant.

Our communities count on us to keep their utilities working. And they count on us to be there during difficult times. We believe in supporting the many organizations and volunteers that are working so tirelessly to offer vital social services, improve our quality of life and foster vibrancy in our communities.

And we believe in nurturing a creative and innovative landscape, where the challenges of today can be overcome through new and innovative ideas.

We're in this together

And we've taken these words to heart. We've established the Heart + Soul Fund by EPCOR to support organizations that bring joy to our community, and provide a lifeline to those hardest hit by COVID-19.

Through the Heart + Soul Fund, we want to help our community build resilience and deliver programming that uplifts Edmontonians.

We are providing $1.25 million through small, medium and large grants to support arts, culture, recreation and charitable organizations in addressing the new and growing demands they face, and continuing to do what they do best: bringing the heart and soul to our community.

Overall, we've committed $2 million in relief and recovery funding, which is in addition to the more than $1 million we provide in community support every year.  




Continued support

The Heart + Soul Fund builds on the $500,000 in emergency relief funding EPCOR provided early in the pandemic. This past spring, we made a significant contribution to COVID-19 relief funds that were eligible for provincial matching. Our employees contributed over $41,000 to an internal employee matching campaign, generating over $82,000 for charities in the communities where we operate and we have additional support planned for our operations in the US, Ontario and regional Alberta. All of these contributions combined with the Heart + Soul Fund will provide $2M in added support within the communities where we operate.
