Go Auto gives back
Go Auto gives back to dozens of organizations across the country through humanitarian efforts and responsible business practices.
With more than 3,500 employees in the fold, we are committed to doing our part as corporate citizens. Thanks to our success, we have been privileged to contribute to community programs, cancer research, and wildlife conservation while helping people move towards cultural, social, and economic prosperity. As a result, both our company and our communities are stronger for it.
In 2019, Go Auto teamed up with the Kids with Cancer Society to help support the needs of children with cancer and their families. Over five years, we will be pledging $3 million to the Kids with Cancer Society - effectively a donation of $10 for every vehicle we sell.
Not only that, but we are giving our customers the opportunity to match our $10 donation during their vehicle purchase. We want to make a substantial commitment as a company, but we also want to make it easy for our customers to give back and help raise as much money as possible. With the help of our customers, we hope the total funds raised will be more than $5 million.
In 2023, Go Auto donated $500,000 to the Edmonton Public School Foundation in partnership with the Edmonton Stingers 'Fresh Hoops' initiative.
Fuels the Schools started in April 2018. Behind the full weight of our in-house culinary team, led by Corporate Red Seal Chef David Husereau, hundreds of Go Auto employees volunteer their time packaging and delivering approximately 100,000 meals a year to children throughout the Edmonton school system.
There are thousands of kids in socially vulnerable situations across our city. Many of them go to school every day without lunch. That is why we launched Go Auto Fuels the Schools. Lunches are both hot and cold and feature healthy choices like salads, sandwiches, fruits, vegetables, and snacks.
The 2023 IG Wealth Management Walk for Alzheimer's supports dementia awareness and raises funds to support British Columbians affected. Go Auto is proudly serving as the core sponsor for the event which takes place across 21 cities with over 2,200 walkers and volunteers across the province.
Go Auto has been supporting this wonderful program since its inception. The staff at the Ronald McDonald House drives two vehicles donated by Go Auto, ensuring there will never be a time when their service is unavailable to families.
We even got Connor McDavid to surprise families with a visit, delivering their vehicles and signing hockey paraphernalia and tickets.
