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.

We believe in giving with our heart + soul. But we want to do more.

Our fund will provide new support in the following areas:

Support for charities

Dedicated non-profit organizations provide a lifeline to those who need help the most. Demand for food and shelter remain high and there's a growing need for mental health, substance abuse and family violence support in our community. Fundraising will be a challenge for all.

EPCOR is making funding available to help charities reshape their fundraising activities, so they can continue helping those in need – sustainably – at a time when every penny counts.

Support for arts, culture
and recreation

We know that arts, culture and recreation contribute to the heart and soul of any community and these sectors were hard hit during the pandemic. EPCOR's new Heart + Soul Fund is intended to provide financial support to arts, culture and recreation organizations and creators that are helping to make our everyday lighter and brighter.

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.
