Newalta is a proud member of the communities in which we operate and
recognizes the interest we have in ensuring the health, prosperity and
quality of life of those communities.
We demonstrate that interest by providing financial and other support to
a variety of registered charities, non-profit agencies and
community-based organizations and initiatives. Most importantly, our
people volunteer their time to help these organizations achieve their
Engaging in the community is a core value for our organization. While
there is a cost to such engagement - and to making community
investments, such as the almost $1 million we donate annually - we
see it as an investment in our future and our social license to operate.
We focus our investments into a number of key areas: community health and well-being; environment and recreation; education and learning; and arts and culture. Signature programs include our United Way employee-led fundraising campaign, our long-time financial support for women's shelters in our operating communities, and our program to help families who need the services of local Ronald McDonald Houses.
We are creative with our support and are always looking for new and better ways to help organizations improve our communities.
