Millar Western donates to various causes within the communities where we operate, focusing our investments in the areas of education, health care, poverty alleviation and family- and youth-oriented programs.
The company has established endowments funding scholarships for the pursuit of post-secondary education at the University of Alberta, MacEwan College and Northern Alberta Institute of Technology. We also have a special initiative, the Alexis/Millar Western Scholarship Program, to assist youth from that community in reaching their post-secondary education goals.
Among the agencies that benefit from company support are the United Way, health research initiatives and local food banks. The company has also invested in important community amenities, such as a multi-purpose recreation facility in Whitecourt, and home-building, rink-building and other projects within the Alexis Nakota Sioux Nation.
Donation requests may be directed to the coordinator. Requests for the purchase of advertising to support publications or for the purchase of event tickets for distribution to school or other groups fall outside the company’s donation guidelines and will be declined.
