Corporate Social Responsibility and Employee Volunteerism

Corporate giving

MD Financial Management gives generously to the United Way, and more than a third of the MD staff is directly involved in our annual campaign. We also encourage our employees to direct their funds to the communities and causes that are close to their hearts by leveraging the United Way’s network of charitable organizations. MD and its employees also support the Heart and Stroke Foundation, the Red Cross and Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF).

Individual commitment

In addition to corporate support, we leverage an internal social intranet to promote charities which our employees support. Our employees are committed to giving back to their local communities, and we’re honored to provide them both the avenue to build this much-needed support and the time required to fully participate.

Across Canada, in our 54 regional offices, employees give generously to local causes, including food banks, emergency shelters, dragon boat races, fundraising runs and many more.

Since 2004, employees have been volunteering to read weekly to students at local schools through the OttawaReads program. In 2017, our volunteers received the Community Partnership Award on behalf of CMA/MDFM at the Ottawa Carleton District School Board's (OCDSB) Community Volunteer Awards.

In 2010, we introduced a program entitled Leave for Change that gives employees the opportunity to participate in a volunteer assignment in a developing country. The Leave for Change program has been a strong success, with 12 volunteers from MD contributing their talents to development projects around the world.
