Giving-it is part of what we do. For every closed mortgage, Mortgage Connection contributes real dollars into the community. Real impact, real local. Connected to the Community.
We’re from here. We love our city, and we want to see it grow and flourish. But our commitment to community outreach goes even deeper than that. We give back because it’s the right thing to do, plain and simple. Helping people is important to us, whether it’s by helping them find the right mortgage, or by donating time and funds to local projects.
Mortgage Connection is in the position to give back because it is one of our core values and part of our corporate mandate. We insist that a portion of all proceeds goes into the community fund; it’s non-negotiable and contributions are growing each year. We’re always looking for new causes and projects to support, too. We’d love to hear about the initiatives that matter most to you. Let us know what community causes you’re passionate about.
Not every kid gets the chance to see a live hockey game, or experience their favourite band in concert-but we think they should. The goal was simple, our team came together along with members of the community and got sweaty in a spin class at YYC Cycle to raise money for Kids Up Front; an organization that helps kids get tickets to once-in-a-lifetime events.

Every December, Mortgage Connection donates $15,000 to charitable organizations and families in need. The holidays can be a tough time for many; if we can do our part to brighten it, we will. Over the last couple of years, we have focused on local families nominated by our clients. To date, the Holiday Campaign has invested $90,000 back into our city and helped many Calgarians.
Kids need to eat a balanced breakfast to help them succeed in school. For 4 years Mortgage Connection donated $25,000 per year to support Patrick Airlie Elementary School’s Fuel for School program. This incredible program helps make sure every child has a nutritious breakfast before they start their school day.
Playing outside was a staple of our childhoods. We want to make sure today’s kids have a safe and fun place to play outside, just like we did. The community of Inglewood had received a government grant to build a brand new outdoor rink, but they still didn’t quite have all the money they needed. If they couldn’t find the extra dollars, they were going to lose the grant altogether!
Mortgage Connection was happy to step up! We donated $10,000 to kick off their fundraising, and even helped them raise money among other local businesses until we reached our goal!
Alberta is world-famous for its beef. We want to make sure every Albertan has access to it! Over the last 10 years, we’ve partnered with Creekside Farms to donate more than 100,000 lbs of beef (worth over $300,000) to local facilities and charitable organization. Mortgage Connection has happily delivered beef to Recovery House, the Calgary Drop-In Centre, YWCA, Sheriff King Women’s Shelter, Mary Dover House, The Mustard Seed, The Salvation Army, Fresh Start, and more!
