Giving Back

The Concord Projects Foundation is our way of giving back to our communities here at home and around the world. Each year, The Concord Projects Foundation donates funds to non-profit charities and programs.

Led by a board consisting of Mary Paetkau, Ted Paetkau and Rachel Ploegman, our primary focus is supporting the causes of health and education, both in Winnipeg where we work, and in developing countries.

The Concord Projects Foundation exemplifies the values and principles upon which our company was built: philanthropy, community and pride of employment. Giving back is an obligation we take seriously, and we are committed to doing what we can to improve the lives of others.

To date, The Concord Projects Foundation has participated in the funding of: Main Street Project Sunshine Fund, MCF Canada, MCC Canada’s support of maternal & newborn health initiatives in Afghanistan, The Stanley Pauley Engineering Building, University of Manitoba Camp Manitou Expansion, Red River College Polytech Bursary.
