Because we truly believe in helping the communities we create, build and manage
In that spirit, we set aside a portion of our earnings each year to support charitable causes in the community. This fund is then distributed to charities chosen by our staff. We encourage our employees to give back by matching their charitable donations.
We’re proud of our ongoing relationship with these charities:
Cassie and Friends
David Porte, president of our company, is also a founding member and chairman of Cassie & Friends: A Society for Children with Juvenile Arthritis and Other Related Diseases. Cassie and Friends is named after his daughter Cassie, who was diagnosed with Juvenile Arthritis when she was just 20 months old.
Hockey Helps the Homeless
Since 1996, Hockey Helps the Homeless has leveraged our country’s love of hockey to help the more than 250,000 people affected by homelessness in Canada. Tournaments are held in cities from coast to coast, raising nearly $1 million a year.
Surrey Food Bank
The Surrey Food Bank Society distributes approximately 2,000 food hampers each week, and has expanded support through other internal programs, outside agencies and food security programs. The society is able to operate solely due to donations of money and food and receives no government funding.
