For 35 years West Edmonton Mall has been proud to partner with many organizations and causes in our community. From providing venue spaces to charitable events at no cost, to welcoming dozens of Make-A-Wish families every year, we’re grateful to have been able to support these organizations and families. Check out our 2019 highlights to see some of the initiatives we tackled in the past year.
Non-Profit & Fundraising Events
West Edmonton Mall hosts more than 50 events annually for non-profit organizations with the goal of helping them raise awareness and funds for their work. For more information about holding a non-profit event at West Edmonton Mall, please contact 780-444-5200.
Local Environmental Services Community Centre
West Edmonton Mall and Local Environmental Services are pleased to announce a joint partnership on the Local Environmental Services Community Centre. The centre is designed to allow non-profits, community groups and charitable organizations the opportunity to promote their missions and charitable initiatives to millions of shoppers. West Edmonton Mall and Local Environmental Services developed this partnership through a mutual commitment to our community. To this end, the centre is provided to charitable organizations at no cost to them with the goal of increasing charitable giving and awareness in our community.
West Edmonton Mall continues to be a strong community partner by donating items to registered charities and organizations throughout the year for special events, silent auctions, and raffles. All donation requests must be made at least six weeks in advance.
Due to West Edmonton Mall giving guidelines, we are unable to donate to:
- Graduation parties
- Fundraiser programs for specific individuals, teams, or schools
- Religious organizations
- Corporate partners, incentive programs, or events
Please note that requests will not be processed for events taking place between June and August. West Edmonton Mall will not fulfill requests for monetary donations and will not solicit Mall tenants for donations on behalf of a group or organization.
Mayor of the Mall
West Edmonton Mall is proud to partner with Local Environmental Services to introduce the Mayor of the Mall Charitable Initiative! Each month, West Edmonton Mall and Local Environmental Services will work with a local children's charity to nominate a child for a one-of-a-kind experience at WEM and the title of Mayor of the Mall! Once nominated, WEM will craft an experience that combines the unparalleled mix of retail, attractions, and accommodations available at the centre that is tailored specifically to the child's interests, including a host of mayoral perks for the child to enjoy!
At West Edmonton Mall, we are doing everything we can to lessen our impact on the environment. We have undertaken a number of green initiatives over the years to decrease our environmental footprint.
WEM’s recycling efforts involve all departments and a large number of products including used hydraulic oil and varsol, paint, small batteries, small electronics, pallets, toner cartridges, large electronics, metals, fluorescent and compact fluorescent lamps, ballasts, and large batteries. Tenants are also encouraged to recycle paper and cardboard. Each Dock site (where orders come in and garbage is taken out) has specific areas set aside for paper and cardboard.
