At Cameco, we believe in making a difference in the communities where we operate.
That's why we target one percent of Cameco's after-tax net earnings for community initiatives and projects that fall within at least one of our four focus areas:
- education and literacy
- health and wellness
- community development
Each year Cameco receives a substantial number of worthy requests for funding. The community investment department carefully reviews all submissions, keeping in mind guidelines for community investment. Cameco sets a priority on providing support to organizations in the communities where the company has operations or an employee base, focusing on the areas of youth, education and literacy, health and wellness and community development.
In general, Cameco follows a "three-year on, two-year off" guideline that promotes a more equitable distribution of funds throughout communities. Under this guideline, groups may receive funding for up to three consecutive years and then are not eligible to re-apply for two years. Year-to-year funding is not guaranteed under this guideline, as groups must apply annually for consideration.
Donations and sponsorships are not normally provided to:
- Organizations which do not qualify for non-profit status
- Retire deficits or fund operating expenses
- Loans, lotteries or cash prizes
- Fraternal or religious organizations
- Individuals, teams or travel
- Annual operating campaigns
- Form letter appeals
