Driven by our commitment to making valuable and enduring contributions to the communities in which we build, Polygon prides itself on listening closely to the needs of both public and private interests.
We are dedicated to positively contributing to each city’s economy and quality of life by creating welcoming neighbourhoods for new residents. Following is a sampling of some of Polygon’s most recent community contributions:
Polygon Supports the Union Gospel Mission
For the twelfth consecutive year, Polygon is proud to support Union Gospel Mission (UGM). UGM is a volunteer organization dedicated to meeting the needs of hungry and homeless men, women and children in Greater Vancouver. Over the past ten years, Polygon has raised over $1,186,000 for this worthwhile organization through its popular ‘12 Days of Christmas Raffle". Our 2011 campaign allowed for the purchase of two much needed outreach vehicles and our 2012 and 2013 campaigns each raised over $125,000 for UGM’s Eastsiders Afterschool Program. Children in the program participate in a wide range of activities that teach them life skills, keep them active and engaged physically and mentally, and establish a foundation for a bright future. For more information about how you can contribute to this worthwhile cause, please call 604-877-1131.
British Columbia Creative Achievement Awards for First Nations' Art
Polygon has been a sponsor of the British Columbia Creative Achievement Awards for First Nations' Art since 2009. The awards recognize up to four artists affiliated with BC First Nations working in BC traditional or contemporary visual arts in such fields as carving, weaving, beading, jewellery, photography, painting, masks, sculpture, stonework, print making, basket making and textiles.
Polygon Evergreen Arts Education Program
Polygon has recently renewed their $75,000 commitment until 2017 to Coquitlam’s highly regarded Evergreen Cultural Centre, as it continues to make a wide variety of fine and performing arts programs available to local elementary and high school students.
