Twenty years ago I founded a cancer charity, Kids Cancer Care Foundation of Alberta, focused on children’s research and the well-being of children diagnosed with this horrific disease. The very first corporate donation I received was from Cenovus (then Pan Canadian) because they were then, as they are now, good corporate citizens. Throughout the years it was followed by many more donations, caring volunteers and sources of support from a variety of energy companies and their employees that went far beyond tangible items. Canada’s energy sector is vital to the non-profit sector and we are honoured to be the beneficiary of their generosity. When they succeed, we all succeed.
