Community (EPIC)

ATCO EPIC: Employees Participating in Communities

The ATCO EPIC program is an employee-led initiative where committees plan, implement and administer workplace fundraising campaigns.

ATCO EPIC recognises employees who volunteer their time and assist charitable and not-for-profit organisations. Every year, employees volunteering 50 hours or more are eligible to apply to receive a donation to a registered charity of their choice.

Employees can also donate to the charity of their choice, giving them the opportunity to make a difference in their own community.
