A charitable and giving spirit is alive and growing at GrandBridge Energy. We are proud of our reputation as a good neighbour, who offers helping hands when needed in our communities.

We believe it is important to allocate a portion of our net income to important community initiatives each year. In view of our position as a private company with a very public mandate, our Corporate Giving Program has been designed to best reflect the values and goals of Energy+.

United Way Campaign

Over the past 25 years, our utility has raised over $600,000 for the United Way agencies it supports. Its annual workplace campaign often exceeds its campaign goal through generous employee payroll pledges, as well as employee-organized events held throughout the year. A corporate employer contribution matches employee pledges dollar-for-dollar.

Our utility provided donations to support a number of 'legacy' projects in our communities including local playground projects, The Stedman Hospice, Paris Parks Foundation, Langs Health Centre, Cambridge Memorial Hospital Foundation, the Brant Community Healthcare System, The Sunshine Foundation of Canada, Greens on Queen Community Food Bank Garden, the Brantford Food Bank and the Cambridge and North Dumfries Food Bank.

Community Living Cambridge, an agency that supports individuals with developmental disabilities, received corporate donations from Energy+, which enabled the organization to kick start and then expand their new Parenting Program. 

Eligibility Requirements:  

Primary consideration for corporate donations is given to non-profit, charitable organizations under the Income Tax Act, that support 'legacy' projects regarding health, safety, child and youth development and families.

Groups interested in applying for a Corporate Donation are required to complete a Request for Corporate Donation form, which will be reviewed by the Donation Committee, a cross-functional team of employees.

  • Organizations which are not tax exempt (non-profit charity);
  • Religious, ethnic or political organizations unless their services or resources are available equally to all other groups;
