Giving Frequently – our donation to the Brant County SPCA

Giving. Donating. Sharing. Caring. There are as many ways to describe the impetus to give as there are ways to give.

Since day one, giving has been one of the 18 ways in which we are, quite simply, different. This is because helping people will always be at the heart of what we do. And it’s the reason why giving generously, frequently and consistently is an essential part of the ALIGNED employee experience.

As a result, our social responsibility program was created at the same time ALIGNED Insurance was founded. It is, quite literally, a foundational part of our organization and a way in which we work hard to lead by example. In our communities, in our industry as well as across Canada.

Our people helping Canadian charities

Robyn Selmes
Assistant Vice President

We know that improving lives and advancing causes is what drives Canadian charities and non-profits. Connecting people to community, educational, environmental, food, healthcare and social programs is at the heart of what the not-for-profit sector does.

We also understand how deeply charities and non-profits resonate with people. In addition, we understand how important financial gifts are to helping a charity or non-profit keep delivering on their mission. This is why, each month, one of us selects a charity or non-profit organization that we are passionate about. And then we, as an organization, donate to that organization.

This month, Assistant Vice President Robyn Selmes selected Brant County SPCA for an ALIGNED Insurance Give Frequently donation.

Robyn shares, “When I talked to my two 14-year-old daughters about the ALIGNED Giving Frequently social responsibility program, they immediately thought of Tickles. Our family rescued Tickles the cat from our local animal shelter. We adopted Tickles from Brant County SPCA and he’s a truly delightful kitty. And yes, like so many cats these days, every so often he decides to join me on a Zoom call. On behalf of my daughters and my entire family I’m very proud to select Brant County SPCA to receive a donation from ALIGNED Insurance.”

In their own words: How Brant County SPCA helps animals and people

As a result of our commitment to Giving Frequently, a donation is being made to Brant County SPCA.

In short, here is what this organization has been doing to help support animals in Brantford, Ontario since 1969:

“The Brant County SPCA is a not-for-profit organization that has been providing animal protection and welfare services in the City of Brantford and the County of Brant for over 50 years. These services include providing care and shelter for homeless animals, pet adoptions, public surrenders, emergency boarding services and humane education.

The shelter, located at 539 Mohawk Street Brantford, was built in 1969 and has provided a home for homeless animals ever since. These animals include, but are not limited to cats, dogs, rabbits, guinea pigs, and birds. Although domestic animals are housed and cared for at the shelter, the Brant County SPCA also rescues many sick, injured, and orphaned wild animals annually.

With the help of a volunteer base of over 300 volunteers, we’re also proud to offer services to our community like private food pantries for those in need, food and supply drop-offs, supporting food bank distribution, and a growing pet foster community. Our volunteers also help us to celebrate special occasions at the SPCA, like our Annual Open House and Reunion.

Our staff are critical to the work we do and we wouldn’t be the Brant County SPCA without the people working behind the kennel doors. With a staff of between 25 and 30, the shelter is able to provide a temporary home for over 3000 animals a year. And in 2019 was able to find homes for 1,598 of those animals, thanks to the efforts of shelter staff.”1

In conclusion – our commitment to giving

Social responsibility. It’s about more than just giving, it’s about people. We know it is our privilege to connect our clients with better business insurance. And we know that it is our social responsibility to help others in a number of ways.

Giving Frequently is one of those ways. We invite you to learn more about the organizations that ALIGNED team members have selected and we have supported over the years here.

How we are also Giving Generously

In addition to Giving Frequently, each year, a portion of ALIGNED’s profits are donated to a registered Canadian charity. It is important to us that our clients are part of our social responsibility program. That’s why once each year, we invite each of our clients to propose a charity that is meaningful to them. And it’s why we also engage our clients in selecting the charity that receives our Give Generously donation.
