Community Involvement

Savanna’s mandate, from day one, has been to give back to the communities in which we live and work through volunteerism, donations, employment, and partnerships among other initiatives. Our employees and executives are active participants in the campaigns and programs that benefit the community.

Where We’re Involved

Veteran’s Food Bank

Stollery Children’s Hospital Foundation

As well as the commitment to provide monetary donations to support the communities in which we live, Savanna also encourages our employees to volunteer their time for community service activities. In support of our employee’s charitable interests, and in acknowledgement of their citizenship, Savanna commits to donating $500 for a minimum of forty hours of volunteer work an employee dedicates to a single charity.

Each year, Savanna management sets a budget for Corporate donations. Determining which organizations receive our support is based upon whether or not they fit into the following areas of focus:

  • Health (eg. hospitals, STARS)
  • Social & Welfare (e.g. food banks, United Way)
  • Education (e.g. literacy programs, scholarships)

The company also tends to support organizations which have low administrative costs associated with their fundraising.
