Community Investment Guidelines

Finning Canada takes great pride in the contributions we make to our communities and dedicates a lot of time and energy to selecting the programs and investments that make our communities a better place to live and work. We receive a large number of requests each year and we try to support as many organizations as possible, aligned with our community investment guidelines and budget.

Donation Eligibility

All requests must be from a registered non-profit agency, be for program funding, not operations and correspond to one of the following categories.

Our primary focus is providing support to science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) organizations that provide education outreach to youth and post-secondary students.

We also consider support for Indigenous outreach, programs in support of girls & women and programs that support communities at risk, typically underserved communities in rural, remote areas that are at an economic, environmental and social disadvantage. Preference will be given to programs supporting children and youth with a focus on STEM.

Other Considerations:

  • Contribution amount requested
  • If the charity supports the geographic area where we live and work
  • Number of Finning Canada employees involved or potential for participation
  • Public perception of organization/initiative

We DO NOT consider requests for:

  • Private foundations or for-profit organizations
  • Sporting organizations/sponsorships
  • Religious or sectarian organizations
  • Service clubs
  • Second party fundraisers
  • Political organizations or campaigns
  • Charitable advertising campaigns
  • Promotional materials
  • Travel expenses
  • Events
