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.
Applications to the Heart + Soul Fund are now closed.
We're in this together
In 2020, we 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. Since 2020 we've committed
$3.5 million in pandemic relief and recovery funding, which is in addition to the more than $1 million we provide in community support every year. Thank you to all the recipients for keeping our community vibrant and healthy.
We are no longer accepting applications to the Heart + Soul Fund. Please visit our website for more infomation on the many ways we give back to our community and how to apply for funding.
We're thankful for our communities. Here are some of the impacts that have been made:
