Harvest's Community Support Program is primarily designed to support not-for-profit and charitable activities which have a registered charitable tax number, are aligned with our business objectives, and:
- contribute to the quality of life in communities in or near to where Harvest operates;
- benefit a wide and visible group of people;
- have a minimal portion of the donation being allocated to overhead or other administration costs; and
- encourage community volunteerism by our employees, contractors, and consultants.
Priority for Harvest’s donations is given to not-for-profit and charitable activities in which Harvest employees, Directors, individual contractors/consultants, and/or their families participate, and to activities for which a matching donation, in cash or in kind, is being made. Second to that are organizations which fit Harvest’s criteria for funding.
Primary areas for investment will focus on causes that benefit a large number of residents in communities where Harvest works or operates, including the corporate office and the field areas. Organizations involved in the advancement of education and development of youth; health and wellness; environment and safety; and community support will be given priority, as will not-for-profit and charitable activities in which a significant number of Harvest employees, Directors, individual contractors/consultants and/or their families participate, and/or support (in which case a matching donation may be made by Harvest).
In Newfoundland, North Atlantic’s annual giving program is designed to maximize support for its neighbours, while the positive impact of providing support helps make the local communities better places to live, work, and do business. North Atlantic generally directs funding and support to activities involving Education, Youth, Health, Safety, Environment, and restricts its giving to the Province of Newfoundland and Labrador.
