Corporate Giving Program

Applying for funding:

Steel River’s Corporate Giving Program is one way Steel River chooses to care about individuals and the communities in which we work. We believe in investing in people, programs, and community initiatives to support the cultural, social, and economic well-being of people and communities.


Please note, while we remain committed to our Steel River Group Corporate Giving program, at this time our budget only allows us to consider a limited number of new partnerships or community initiatives for the remainder of 2021. We will continue to honour all existing, committed community donations and sponsorships.

The Steel River Corporate Giving Program supports four key areas of care:

Children and Youth

Charities and activities supporting children and youth.


Amateur sports organizations or individuals.


Scholarships and Bursaries awarded to support an individual’s education/career development, awarded on the basis of academic, other achievements, or need.

Indigenous & Community Investment

Programs/initiatives that support community, training, youth development, education, and the health and wellness of Indigenous people.

Corporate Giving is divided into two categories:


A monetary gift to an eligible charity, organization, or individual.


Strategic partnerships negotiated with an organization or event.  Marketing is the primary purpose of sponsorship and success is measured by the return on investment to Steel River Group in the form of brand awareness, business connections, and audience reach.
