Community

Our Commitment

As a Southern Alberta based, family-owned company, we appreciate the value of supporting our community and we work hard to fuel the needs of our community.

For many years Gas King has been actively involved in the communities in which we serve, and we make every effort to support the communities who have supported us.

Don Morris Memorial Fund

Don Morris/Gas King Memorial Fund

When Gas King was established in 1985, Don Morris knew that he was venturing into a fiercely competitive business. He would be competing with some of the largest and most established companies in the world. Morris believed that he could differentiate his retail fuel business from the competition if he focused on giving to local charitable organizations in the communities in which he served.

Don Morris passed away in 1992 and in 2004 The Don Morris / Gas King Memorial Fund was established as a way for Gas King to continue to honour his commitment to the communities who allowed him to be successful.

Coin boxes are placed at the checkouts of all Gas King locations. Customers usually deposit extra change into the coin box. Every three months all the money deposited in the coin boxes is collected and given to the appropriate Community Foundation. Gas King matches the contributions.

Further details about Community Foundations can be found at communityfoundations.ca.

Fundraising

In support of local and non-profit organizations Gas King has developed the following two unique programs to raise money and increase awareness for all worthwhile organizations in our community.

Charity Care Wash and the Clean Card

Charity Care Wash

Gas King Charity Care Wash Logo

Gas King provides organizations with a car wash bay, high-pressure soap and water. All of these services are provided at no charge so groups can raise funds through a community car wash without acquiring many expenses. The organization provides signage, chamois, etc. and most importantly, enthusiastic volunteers.

Charity Care Wash Applications are available at all Gas King locations. You may also apply for a Charity Care Wash using one of the links.

Clean Card

In support of your fund raising campaign the Clean Card can be sold in denominations of $25.00, $50.00 and $100.00 by members of your organization to friends, neighbours and family alike. Orders are then given to your fundraising coordinator who places the order with Gas King. Payment is included with this order; less your profit of 15%. Clean Cards will be loaded and returned to your fundraising coordinator for distribution. We will provide you with the forms and everything else to make your fundraising efforts a success.

Our fundraising opportunities are designed to raise money and increase awareness for all worthwhile causes in our community.

They can help the following types of causes:

  • Theatre groups
  • Children's groups
  • Schools - graduations, bands, committees • Community groups
  • Environmental and conservation organizations
  • Health organizations • Your worthwhile cause!

Gas King fundraising pamphlets are available at all Gas King locations.
