Thanks to the generosity and solidarity of employees at its head office, Canadian ICMIF member Promutuel Insurance is proud to announce that its latest Centraide workplace campaign has raised a record CAD 68,419.46 in direct donations. At a time when community organisations everywhere are under pressure to do more for more people, Promutuel Insurance decided to give more. In addition to matching employee donations as it normally does, it also made an additional contribution to the Impact Fund, for a total donation to Centraide of CAD 147,000.
“We are delighted, but not at all surprised by our employees’ generosity. Promutuel Insurance team members are faithful to the values of our organisation. The results of the Centraide 2022 campaign are a testament to their commitment to helping those who need it most. Bravo and thank you from the bottom of my heart to all the employees who helped make sure no one gets left behind,” said Geneviève Fortier, CEO (pictured right).
Most of the funds will be distributed to Centraide Québec and Chaudière-Appalaches, which supports more than 215 community organisations in their mission to fight poverty, exclusion, and social inequality. Based on where the donors live, a total of CAD 31,104.32 will also be given to Centraide du Grand Montréal.
“Again this year, in addition to matching the donations from Federation staff, Promutuel Insurance is stepping up and adding a CAD 10,000 contribution to the Centraide Critical Impact Fund. The fund supports local organizations that work hard in their communities to ensure that everyone can meet their basic needs and needs that have been exacerbated by the pandemic,” said Simon Girard, Vice-President of Finance (pictured left).
“Today’s pandemic is compounded by 30 years of economic instability. Runaway inflation affects the price of groceries, transportation, housing, and more. For thousands of Quebecers who were already being served by the community organizations United Way supports, it is increasingly difficult to make ends meet. And more and more people are now turning to these organizations for the first time. On behalf of United Way, I would like to thank Promutuel Insurance and its employees for their tremendous generosity,” said Alexandra Larochelle, Partnership and Development Coordinator at Centraide Québec et Chaudière-Appalaches (pictured centre).
Promutuel Insurance has been holding Centraide workplace campaigns for almost 30 years. Because the company believes it has a duty to be there when people need it the most, it makes perfect sense for Promutuel Insurance and its employees to do their bit by generously contributing to the cause.
