Prince George Community Grants Program

Prince George, British Columbia, Canada.


The IREN Group run leading next-generation data centers powered by 100% renewable energy (whether from clean or renewable energy sources or through the purchase of RECs). We build, own, and operate our data centers and take pride in being at the forefront of sustainable solutions for the ever-evolving applications of AI cloud services. We believe that human progress is invaluable, but it should be done in the right way – responsibly, sustainably, and positively in order to have a positive impact on the communities in which we operate.

As a key component of our commitment to making a positive contribution to the local communities in which we operate, the IREN Group has established a Community Grants Program (the Program). The Program will provide funding for local initiatives that benefit the community in the areas of community participation, sustainability, safety, technology, and learning. 

Up to a total of CAD$100,000 of grant funding will be available each year within the City of Prince George, BC.
