PROUD of our people

Our PROUD employee volunteer program allows us as an organization to recognize, encourage and most importantly reward the efforts of our colleagues who volunteer and support their communities. It is because of their charitable endeavours and desire to help their community that we are able to achieve our goal which is to positively impact the various needs, causes and projects that matter the most in our communities.

PROUD of our business

Every year, Great Canadian invests over $2 million in communities across the country. Chance Chilliwack’s PROUD community activities, countless volunteer hours and hundreds of events and fundraisers support this contribution and directly impacts local groups and those that they help.

PROUD of our community

Here is just a short list of some of the charitable organizations and projects Chances Chilliwack has recently supported:

  • Adopt-a-road program
  • Chilliwack Bowls of Hope
  • Fraser Valley West Coast Motorcycle Ridge to Live

Become a PROUD Chances Chilliwack Community Partner

 

To help grow our PROUD commitment, we are always looking for opportunities to work with community leaders and organizations that effect positive change, in whatever capacity would be most valuable to them. Here are some common principles and values we look for in a PROUD community partner.

Partnership Criteria:

  • We look to support groups and organizations whose mandate is local and whose work has a direct impact on their community.
  • To create healthy and active relationships in our community, we strive for partnerships rather than a sponsorship.
  • We value an organization’s diversity of programs they offer in support of their community.
  • We expect groups and organizations to employ sound financial practices and sustainable funding tactics.

We encourage registered charities and non-profit organizations to contact us if they feel they are consistent with these principles, but regrettably we cannot support religious, political or advocacy groups, individual fundraising pursuits, or organizations that are inconsistent with our values.

Where the Money Goes

Where the Money Goes

COMMUNITY HOW WE CAN HELP  COMMUNITY ACTION 
In British Columbia, approximately two-thirds of gross gaming revenue from the gaming facilities goes directly back to the government, through the BC Lottery Corporation, for the purpose of supporting programs like healthcare, education and social services. The remaining one-third of gaming revenue is retained by service providers, such as Great Canadian Gaming Corporation, to pay for wages, building costs, taxes and other operational services.
