In the Community
What has Quadro Communications been up to lately?
We’ve been in the community supporting local causes, sports teams, not-for-profit organizations, healthcare facilities, and helping students through our scholarship program.
Quadro is committed to developing and nurturing solid, long-term relationships with the communities we serve.
We not only provide internet, television, mobile phones, and home phones but we also give back to our local communities. We support our customers, friends, and neighbours in a wide range of charitable initiatives that improve lives in our local areas.
What makes Quadro stand out is that we are a cooperative. We’re a member-owned business which means our customers are our owners.
Our members make our profits possible and for that reason, we’re proud to re-invest those profits back to our members’ communities year-over-year.
Quadro wants to make a difference in the lives of our members and their communities so we have contributed to many larger projects over several years. Some of those donations include:
In 2019, we made a 3-year commitment to donate a total of $150,000 to the Rotary Hospice Stratford Perth fundraising campaign. The Quadro Communications East Wing is in recognition of our contribution.
The St. Marys Healthcare Foundation will receive donations in excess of $700,000 from Quadro. Our most recent contribution is a commitment of $200,000 for their 2022 “Here for You Today, Building for Tomorrow” campaign. Quadro’s name and logo will be featured in a new section of the hospital in recognition of our support. Quadro also supported their “Someone I Know” campaign for their Emergency Department.
Another project we are passionate about is the West Perth Village Seniors’ Community in Mitchell. We’ve committed a total of $250,000, which includes Quadro recognition at their site.
Below are some of the relationships and examples of the great things Quadro is supporting within the areas we call home.
As well as many local community events, organizations, service clubs, fairs, sports teams, school fundraisers, cultural groups, municipalities and more.
