Employee Support and Volunteerism
The spirit of employee philanthropy and volunteerism is strong at Union Gas. We support our employees and retirees as they give back to their communities through employee directed giving to eligible charitable organizations, by supporting their sweat-equity of volunteerism and by matching their contributions to our United Way campaign. Employee programs include:
We value our employees' active participation in their local communities and recognize that their time and talents enhance the communities where they live and work. Volunteer projects are encouraged throughout the year, as well as during the Union Gas annual three month-long volunteer effort - Helping Hands in Action.
Union Gas encourages civic volunteerism by providing funding for "sweat equity" volunteer projects performed by employees and retirees. We are also proud to make volunteer grants to eligible, charitable, organizations on behalf of employee volunteer who serves on an organization's board or leadership committee.
We are proud to provide a dollar-for-dollar corporate match for our employees' contributions to our annual United Way campaign. This match serves as Union Gas’ support of health and human service organizations in our communities and recognizes the generosity of our employees to the company campaign.
Matching Gifts Program
We are also pleased to support the generosity and community involvement of employees and retirees by offering the Matching Gifts Program, which provides matching funds to the qualified charitable organizations employees and retirees personally support.
Spectra Energy Scholars Program
The Spectra Energy (parent company of Union Gas) Scholars Program provides college scholarships for qualifying high school senior dependents of our employees and retirees. We value education at all levels and believe it makes good business sense to support the educational endeavours of our own children.
Union Gas enthusiastically supports our communities and employees with stewardship, volunteerism and charitable contributions that are strategic and provide the greatest benefit to the communities where we work and live.
At Union Gas, we strategically support charitable organizations that fall within our focus areas.
At Union Gas, we are committed to helping improve the quality of life in the more than 400 communities we serve. Sponsorships are one way Union Gas can support your community.
Each year, Union Gas partners with over 250 organizations across the province of Ontario through our corporate and employee giving programs.
