At this time, Suncor and the Suncor Energy Foundation (SEF) are:
- continuing to honour all existing, committed community donations and sponsorships for 2020, and
- unable to consider new partnerships or community initiatives that are unrelated to this year’s post-secondary donations program or our response to the COVID-19 crisis and recovery.
Suncor, and the Suncor Energy Foundation (SEF), invest in society by addressing community issues in ways that seek solutions and benefits for all. We show up in community in several ways:
1. Charitable donations
Suncor and SEF proudly contribute to registered charitable organizations in Canada and internationally that align with our community investment funding priorities: Indigenous Peoples, community resilience and energy future.
Suncor supports non-profit and charitable activities and events that align with our community investment funding priorities and business interests through sponsorships and donations (including donations to organizations that do not have charitable status), financial assistance, in-kind contributions, product donations and event sponsorships.
3. Post-secondary donations
SEF’s donation program for Canadian post-secondary institutions is called “Driving Innovation and Reducing Barriers.” This program was created to further support SEF’s existing funding priorities and reduce or eliminate barriers to participation for students and community members while supporting society in moving toward a more fair and sustainable economic system.
More information about the program is available here:
The application period for this program is currently closed. If you are inquiring about the program for 2021, we anticipate releasing information about the application process in late 2020/early 2021. If you are inquiring about the status of your 2020 application, all complete applications currently under review. The SEF Board will make final decisions in late September and we will then advise all applicants of the status of their application.
