UWNBC is working hard to connect resources with local needs all across Northern BC. Non-profit agencies are in great need with these unprecedented and challenging times, and UWNBC remains committed to serving these agencies so they can continue helping the most vulnerable in our communities. As a major step in fulfilling this commitment, UWNBC has partnered with Coastal Gaslink to provide funding to critical programming and services in 16 communities across Northern BC.
The funding has been made available through the generosity of Coastal GasLink and their community-minded prime contractors – Surerus Murphy, SA Energy Group, Pacific Atlantic Pipeline Construction Inc. (PAPC), Macro-Speicapag, Ledcor-Haisla Limited Partnership, and Aecon. These wonderfully generous organizations and the people within have joined in the commitment to support their communities by raising an incredible $97,000 through this initiative.
The Coastal GasLink Legacy of Giving Fund aims to remove barriers by providing funding to recipients to address socioeconomic issues facing their local community. The fund is administered as a partnership between United Way of Northern BC (UWNBC) and Coastal GasLink in a matter consistent with the UWNBC Mission and funding areas and Coastal GasLink’s priority areas of socioeconomic challenges in Northern BC.
It is important that all applications are submitted with utmost care and attention to detail. Unfortunately, in order to maintain low overhead costs, efficient capacity in our organization and to honour the time of our Community Investment Review Panel of volunteers, late or incomplete submissions will not be reviewed or qualify for funding.
