The SunCares program, supported by Suncor and the Suncor Energy Foundation (SEF), is a community engagement program to inspire Suncor employees and retirees to contribute to social well-being, support the causes that are important to them, and help us all work together to strengthen our communities and create energy for a better world.
Through SunCares, employees can create a personal portfolio of causes, give money and/or time to charities of choice, learn new skills, share their knowledge with community organizations, and take advantage of SunCares rewards offered by Suncor and the Suncor Energy Foundation.

In February 2017, the Suncor Energy Foundation launched enhancements to Suncor’s employee giving program SunCares. The changes enable Suncor to provide a more accessible and inclusive annual giving campaign that recognizes contributions to both United Way and those made directly to other community organizations. The new campaign, Together we Care with SunCares and United Way, embodies both SunCares and United Way values. It helps United Way chapters and community organizations sustain their programs and assist individuals and families who need it most. The campaign will run from Sept. 25 to Oct. 31, 2017.
