Support the Cause

Held on the last Wednesday of May each year, Support The Cause is an annual fundraising event that supports the Western Communities Foundation.   The event encourages Western’s employees to walk together for 5km in their local communities to raise money for the Western Communities Foundation.

For every employee who participates in the 5km Support The Cause walk, Western will donate $50 on behalf of the individual to the Western Communities Foundation. All participating employees will be given a bright red Support The Cause t-shirt to wear.

Branches and Western employees can also raise money as part of Support The Cause by securing online donations from friends, family and corporate clients through or

Money raised from Support The Cause is reinvested in the communities which we live and work through the Western Communities Foundation core programs.

First held in 2004, Support The Cause has raised more than $2 million for the Western Communities Foundation.

Annual Fall Classic Golf Tournament

Traditionally held at the picturesque Highwood Golf and Country Club in Western’s hometown of High River, Alberta, the Western Communities Foundation Annual Fall Classic is the perfect opportunity for the industry to come together to raise funds for some great causes.

All proceeds are reinvested back into the communities in which we live and work through the Foundations core programs which focus on public health, public housing, education, and recreation. It’s an awesome event that wouldn’t be possible without the sponsorship and generosity of our corporate and industry partners.
