Employee giving partnerships

The FortisBC ‘Give where you live’ program offers donation match and top-up opportunities to employees throughout the year to further their donations to the causes that are important to them.

The program also offers donations to any non-profit organization for which our employees volunteer.

FortisBC tops up employee donations by 50 per cent when they make a donation benefitting one of the following charitable causes:

Warm Hearts Charitable Foundation

Warm Hearts is our employee-run charitable organization, which supports the health and wellbeing of the communities close to the hearts of FortisBC employees. Since its inception in 1994, almost $900,000 has been donated by employees to charitable organizations throughout the company’s service areas. Warm Hearts was founded and is still managed today by employee volunteers.

United Way

The United Way addresses community issues of poverty and integration in children and seniors. They create and support initiatives including childhood nutrition, developmental and educational success, and senior health and independence and more. The United Way receives yearlong support through employee payroll donations, benefitting the United Way in the employee’s home community.

Other organizations

Once a year, employees can also choose to give directly to a registered not-for-profit organization of their choice. FortisBC will match the donation by 50 per cent when the donation is between $100 and $1,000.

A sizeable sum

In the past three years, FortisBC employees have donated approximately $380,000 to more than 1,000 organizations through the program. With the corporate donations from FortisBC, these organizations have received more than $650,000.
