Vancouver, BC– When we stand together in support of the communities in which we live and work, great things happen. Members of the construction industry across British Columbia are demonstrating their commitment to the people of the province and one electrical trade contracting organization is taking their commitment one step further.
“I believe in supporting the community through the eyes of our employees. Our conscience lives in our employees and helping them and the causes they believe in drives us to do better and be better – as individuals, an organization and as a community,” stated Dan Mott, president of Mott Electric GP.
Mott Electric GP is known for their philanthropic efforts in the lower mainland. Their employee-driven day of giving has raised over one million dollars in support of employee picked charities and their recently launched Women in Electrical Training Fund has already awarded two bursaries.
“To get a scholarship like this means a lot to me,” stated recent bursary recipient, Riley McBride. “It shows me that there is opportunity and acceptance for women in the trade and that there are organizations out there who are supporting you and backing you.”
Looking ahead the Mott Electric GP Legacy Fund, a donor advised fund administered by the Construction Foundation of BC, will provide support and funding to issues related to developing the next generation of skilled workers across British Columbia.
“As a company that has been around for 88 years, there is nothing more important than giving back to the industry and community that has enabled us to build a vibrant business in the lower mainland, shared Ellisha Mott, Manager of Mott Electric GP’s Fiber Optic Division. “We wanted to develop a mechanism that will allow us to continue to give back long into the future and believe that this Legacy Fund is good way for us to accomplish this mission.”
