Employee-related Causes

PUC cares about helping causes that our employees care about, and we seek to support their initiative to do so, especially when it leads to a thriving community . We believe it is essential that our organization supports and encourages employee-related causes, volunteerism, and activities that encourage community involvement. 

Healthy, Safe and Active Kids

PUC strives to make a positive difference in our local communities through the focus on recreational programs that help young people improve their fitness activities and nutrition levels and connect with development programs that will help them to succeed.

PUC will consider donations that will enhance the quality of life for children in the community through physical activity, and the promotion of healthy, safe lifestyles. Our goal for investing in a child’s active lifestyle leads to healthy growth, improved awareness of safety measures, improved performance in school, social development, reduced risk of chronic disease and improved mental health.

PUC acknowledges that active people are also more productive and involved in their communities; therefore, it is an investment in the future of our community.

PUC will consider initiatives that incorporate the following:

  • Contribute to high-quality after-school programming for children from elementary to high school to increase access to innovative recreational programs that improve fitness and nutrition levels
  • Support for workshops, programs, events that teach children about nutrition, healthy eating habits, and good food choices
  • Encourages unstructured fun activities, like playing in a playground
  • Support for recognition programs that encourage leadership in safety
  • Support youth who are facing barriers to recreational, nutritional and educational programming

“Hallmark” Community Events

There are a variety of events that occur every day in our community, which support great causes. Through our donation policy, we want to align with events that are considered “hallmark” events. Hallmark events are those that possess such significance, regarding attractiveness, quality or publicity, and most importantly tradition. These events are permanently embedded into the community and part of its culture.

These events have a broad community reach for large groups of people participate in and enjoy.  They are not sector/industry or niche specific to a group of people. PUC is committed to community partnerships and will consider established events that attract both locals and tourists and generate an overall positive image for the community. Rotary Fest is an example, as it encourages outdoor activities, and involves all age groups.

  • Fall within one of the four guiding principles (pillars) as identified above.
    • Preference, is given to organizations with formal charitable status however;
    • Consideration will be given to non-charitable organizations when the end-use of the funds is fully known
