From September 19 to October 31, Cameco partnered with Dalewood Golf Club to offer the Cameco Charity Golf Package, a socially distanced alternative to a traditional one-day golf tournament fundraising event to raise funds for the Cameco Fund for Mental Health. Cameco matched a portion of all player registration fees and matched all sponsorships at 100 per cent to raise a grand total of $38,118.39. An additional $5,381.00 was raised from employee fundraisers, bringing the total to $43,500.00. Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, Cameco did not host its Step Up for Mental Health 5K fun run/walk event.

All funds will be disbursed to organizations undertaking projects that promote or protect mental health in Northumberland County.

Applications for funding will be adjudicated by a panel that includes local mental health professionals and representatives from Cameco.

The 2020 granting program will disburse $43,500.00. The maximum grant size will be $10,000.00 in 2020.
