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

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 employees enjoy Chili Cook Off event for United Way

Over the past 22 years, Energy+ has raised over $550,000 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.

In 2018, Energy+ provided donations to support a number of 'legacy' projects in our communities including local playground projects, Paris Parks Foundation, Langs Health Centre, Cambridge Memorial Hospital Foundation, and The Sunshine Foundation of Canada. 

Community Living Cambridge, an agency that supports individuals with developmental disabilities, received a corporate donation from Energy+, which enabled the organization to purchase two Real Care Babies to kick start a 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.

Energy+ also believes that cultural activity is an important element of the social fabric of a community. Consideration is given to requests that support music, theatre and the arts.  Preference will be given to established groups that provide services in our service territory (Cambridge, North Dumfries and the County of Brant), in priority to provincial or national organizations).

Groups interested in apply for a Corporate Donation are required to complete a Request for Corporate Donation form, which will be reviewed by 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;
  • Individuals or teams;
  • Agencies which receive funds from United Way, as Energy+ and its employees support the local United Way directly;
  • Endowment funds; and,
  • Lottery ticket sales campaigns.
