GFL proudly provides quality, local service to communities across North America. It’s always been a vital part of our mission to take care of the communities we serve, and give back to them in any way that we can.
That’s why we launched the Full Circle Project (FCP) —an exciting community-driven charitable giving program that lets you, our customers, decide how a portion of our donations are directed.
By putting you in control, FCP is a truly unique way to ensure our charitable giving positively impacts our shared local communities, and that we support the causes that matter most to you.
Our charities are divided into seven classes, so you can pick the one you feel best represents where you’d like our funds to be spent. They are:
Our goal is to support local, high-impact charities that make a difference within our communities. We don’t simply give donations – we focus on building relationships with the organizations that shape where we live and work. These charities become our partners, and GFL employees proudly volunteer their time regularly to extend our support beyond a monetary donation.
All you have to do is tell us what matters most to you!
The best part of FCP is that GFL customers can participate at no cost. You can vote for your preferred charity class online quickly and easily, and also suggest individual charities in your area to receive donations.
GFL allocates donations to charities within the seven classes based on the total percentage of customer votes received for each one. GFL selects high-impact, registered local charities to receive donations, where at least 80 percent of the funds received go towards programming. Volunteering is a key part of FCP, so GFL will facilitate opportunities for employees to give their time to charities and extend our support beyond monetary donations.
When all funds have been allocated, GFL will report back to customers on where and how donations were made, including which charities received them — so you can see how your input is actively making a difference in your local community!
Our seven classes are specially selected to reach organizations that support a wide range of causes. By joining FCP, you can vote for the class that best represents where you would like our funds to be spent.
Animals are some of the most vulnerable members of our communities. This class helps to protect and improve the lives of animals in need.
Many families and individuals struggle with the impacts of cancer and other serious medical conditions. This class offers support for research into cures and developing technologies, and assistance to those affected by chronic medical issues.
Preserving the environment we share will create a brighter future for us all. This class supports charities that focus on conserving our natural and ecological surroundings.
We are indebted to those who selflessly serve our country both at home and abroad. This class focuses on giving back to them in any way we can.
This class helps to provide for those who are less fortunate than ourselves by supporting charities that offer housing, food, job assistance and other services to improve people’s basic standard of living.
From medical care to ensuring no child goes hungry, this class helps to support families with children in need and build a better future for them.
This class invests in enriching local arts and culture, as well as supporting programs and scholarships that create better educational opportunities for young people.
