Congratulations are in order for our Nutrien Family in Calgary, Canada! They are the most recent winners of the United Way Calgary Quantum Leap Award!!
The Quantum Leap Award is given to organizations that increase both their fundraising and their donor participation from previous campaigns. With fun events like a county-fair style kick-off, online auctions, bake sales, and even a pumpkin carving competition, our Calgary Nutrien teammates were able to raise an astounding $268,000 in funds for the vital work that United Way does in their region. This is an increase of over $50,000 from 2018! They also increased their participants by 21% from the previous year, helping them hit their goal of 50% employee participation for 2019.
These events and campaigns were all planned and implemented by a team of 15 dedicated employees, and it took all of the Calgary Nutrien members working together to make it happen.
“Thank you to all of the employees who participate, whether it be through e-pledges, special events, or volunteering on the committee,” said Candace Breen, Senior Financial Analyst, Phosphate Financial Planning, and Analysis (FP&A) in the Calgary office. She continued, “I’ve sat on the Calgary United Way Committee in different capacities over the seven years I’ve been with Nutrien, and every year I’m in awe of how we rally together to support our community.“
These funds will be used by United Way Calgary in a time when their mission is as critical as ever. Their work helps over 179,000 people annually, and more are seeking assistance each day. We are very proud that our Nutrien Family remains a partner to charitable organizations like United Way Calgary in times like these.
Because of our aligned goals of health and wellness in the community, Nutrien and United Way have a strong relationship across many of our campuses. Nutrien has matched the money raised by employees and their families with over 1 Million dollars, and there are currently 15 Nutrien campuses that participate in United Way campaigns. With more being added every day, we look forward to many more years of partnership with this life-changing organization!
