Requesting Community Support
Mowi Canada East believes in helping to build strong communities where our staff live and work. We are pleased to support a variety of community organizations including service groups, sports teams, social programmes, schools, and salmon conservation efforts.
Our corporate giving policy reflects Mowi’s values of Passion, Change, Trust and Share. We will uphold our values by donating to applicants who subscribe to these values and provide a benefit to our communities.
We want to support the fundraising efforts of local groups, service clubs and charities through cash or in-kind donations that may include fresh Atlantic salmon, used equipment, volunteering and/or participation in events by employees and their families.
Sorry, but we don’t sponsor individuals. We won’t fund travel or hotel costs, or operating costs that without would render your organization unsustainable. One more thing we won’t do is provide input or direction to an organization or event that has received our support.
We welcome requests that direct our community investment to conservation initiatives, activities for children and youth, sports and wellness, and poverty relief in the communities where Mowi operates.
We will review submissions once per month (beginning of each calendar month), so requests must be provided well in advance. Our minimum lead time is one month for in-kind donations (salmon, equipment etc), and three months for cash funding – allowing Mowi time to leverage and communicate the investment to our employees and the community. If you request a significant donation (>$1000) and it’s approved, it may be deferred to the next calendar year based on budget restrictions.
You may apply for a cash or in-kind donation by emailing following information to Kristina.White (@) mowi.com:
- Event title or group name
- Date and duration of event or activity
- Previous Mowi donations received
- Primary contact and payment details
- Your donation request
- If successful, what public relations would be generated?
- Any other helpful information
Requests for support are considered and prioritised based on the following criteria:
- Relevant to Mowi values
- Takes place in a region where Mowi operates
- Involves a staff member
Unfortunately, Mowi Canada East will not be able to approve all requests for sponsorships and donations. If you do not hear back from us within 60 days, please consider your application declined for the calendar year.
