We're a company that strives to ensure the communities where we live and work are stronger and better off as a result of us being there. We want these communities to share in the benefits associated with our operations. One of the ways we can do this is through our community investment program, where we look to create shared value through our partnerships with community organizations.
Building better futures together is at the heart of our community investment strategy. We concentrate our efforts in three core areas: learning; safety and well-being; and sustainable communities. Our activities reflect what we stand for: being involved and making a positive difference. We support a wide range of organizations that are focused on the needs that matter most to the local community.
Cenovus is an Imagine Canada Caring company, which means we give one percent of our pre-tax profits to charitable or non-profit organizations.
Our employees are also active in both charitable giving and volunteering. We support and encourage these efforts through our annual employee giving campaign, Thanks & Giving, which takes place every October, as well as our matching donation program and numerous employee volunteer opportunities throughout the year. Cenovus is committed to matching employee donations to a total of $25,000 per employee, per year, and providing grants to the charitable organizations our employees volunteer with.
