Among our employees and advisors, we have many exceptional people who give their time, talent, energy and money to help so many individuals and families in their communities.
Across Canada, our people are making their charitable mark. In 2012 they volunteered thousands of hours of their personal time to support charities and organizations coast to coast. In 2012, 320 employees raised close to $52,000 for the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation through Run for the Cure. The Weekend to End Women’s Cancers saw the Sun Life Financial team raise more than $109,900 for the Princess Margaret Hospital. Our employees also raised $888,340 for United Way/Centraide agencies across Canada.
It’s about lending a hand, sharing values and making better communities.
In Canada, Sun Life’s employee and advisor philanthropy program consists of 4 components: our United Way campaign, the matching gifts program, the Teams for Health program and the volunteer program, including our Volunteer of the Year awards which recognize outstanding dedication by employees, advisors and their families.
