Message from Western Communities Foundation Director
Feb. 23, 2021
Welcome to 2021. This year marks two decades of the Western Financial Group Communities Foundation!
Over the past 20 years, our generous donors, partners, and team members have enabled us to make significant investments to over 1,248 community programs and initiatives across Canada. To date, our total contributions total just over $4 million! We hope to triple our contributions over the next 20 years!
2020 proved to be challenging for many of us. With the elimination of gatherings and social events, our celebrations had to be modified, and fundraising initiatives that brought our communities together were impacted.
Western Financial Group, along with our corporate sponsors, stepped up to help us continue our community giving. We are so thankful for their support. Even in these difficult times, Western and the Foundation contributed over $500,000 to our communities in 2020 through our three pillars of giving:
This past year has taught us that we are stronger together. Our collective efforts make a difference for our employees and the communities where we live, work, and play. I am proud of the impact we achieved in 2020 and look forward to more significant changes in 2021 and over the next 20 years.
