The Grande Prairie Area has been very good to us for these 80 years, and we enjoy returning that gift in kind. Stronger businesses strengthen a community, and a strong community is better able to sustain a thriving business environment. At Fletcher Mudryk, we use our time, skills and resources to give back to our community, strengthening local organizations, businesses and individuals.
Philanthropy is more than just a word in our office, it is an integral part of our culture. We encourage our entire team to be involved in the community, representing the firm in an integral way by coaching, volunteering and mentoring. We want to give back to our community that has shared so much with each of us.
In order to have the greatest impact in the Grande Prairie Area, we have selected a few primary initiatives upon which to focus our efforts.
Our firm made the decision to support the Smart & Caring Leaders program in celebration of our 80 years of business in Grande Prairie. We saw the Foundation’s objectives met our new firm vision we recently established focusing on trust, respect and pride – not only in the work we do, but in our involvement in our community. Local support of our community is what being in business is about; and we have such an incredible community to be proud of, yet with so many areas of need.
The Community Foundation of Northwestern Alberta prides itself in connecting businesses to those greatest needs, so it seemed an easy fit to support an organization that makes long term commitment to this community its priority.
The annual College Classic Golf Tournament is the second largest fundraiser for the GPRC, and it is well on its way to becoming the best charity golf tournament in the region. In 2015, Fletcher Mudryk became the title sponsor of this event.
We believe that the GPRC is an integral part of that community, offering a wide selection of valuable programs and providing high-quality graduates. Our firm makes an effort to hire local talent, and the GPRC has been an excellent source for quality employees. In the past ten years, more than fifty-five of our past and current recruits have been alumni of the GPRC!
In addition to the event title sponsorship, Fletcher Mudryk provided more than 100 volunteer hours to assist on the day of the event.
This year we started support for Ronald McDonald House Charities Northern Alberta. As an organization it is important to us that we support our community in all areas, and this enables us to effectively provide that support to youth and families. Family is an important part of our values at Fletcher Mudryk, and we look forward to continuing to support this charity for years to come!
3D Charity is a local program where all funds go to local students in the Peace Wapiti, GP Catholic, and GP Public School districts who are dealing with serious medical concerns. Fletcher Mudryk is proud to have been a sponsor of the 2017 and 2018 tournaments!
