Millions raised for charity
The ATCO EPIC program is a grassroots initiative involving employee-led committees that plan, implement and administer workplace fundraising campaigns within ATCO. The program combines fundraising events, auctions, friendly team competitions and employee pledges that support more than 500 charitable and non-profit organizations. In 2016, ATCO employees raised $3.3 million.
ATCO matches employee donations
Employees can donate to the charity of their choice, thereby giving them the opportunity to make a difference in their own community. ATCO then matches employee donations to human health and wellness charities, effectively doubling the impact in these communities. ATCO covers all administration costs, ensuring that 100 per cent of the funds raised go directly toward the benefiting organizations.
ATCO employees volunteering their time
ATCO EPIC also recognizes employees who volunteer their time and share their talents with charitable and non-profit organizations. Every year employees volunteering 50 hours or more are eligible to apply for a donation to a registered charity of their choice. In 2016, ATCO employees volunteered nearly 12,000 hours to make our communities a better place to work and live.
