“My grandfather started Cober 103 years ago and this region has supported our growth over these many decades. We feel it is the right thing to do to try to give back when we can.”

– Peter Cober

When a company’s brand promise is “success through collaboration,” a long-standing partnership is inevitable.

For Peter Cober, President of Cober, giving back to the community is part of a centuryold relationship between the company and Waterloo Region.

Peter says that partnering with KWCF is a way to support many organizations and causes throughout the community, a community that has supported Cober throughout its long history.

“Waterloo Region has survived many ups and downs and has always helped us weather these storms. I see KWCF as doing the same to support our Region,” Peter explains. “They make intelligent decisions on where the needs of the community are most critical and make sure the funds go to the charitable organizations addressing those issues. If you look at the support that KWCF has, you can easily see that it is respected by many industry leaders and the philanthropic community.”

For over 17 years Cober has donated the costs of printing and distribution of KWCF’s annual reports. In 2018, they were also instrumental in helping KWCF through an important rebrand. Cober is highly regarded as a versatile supplier of traditional and digital print, interactive and integrated marketing services which focus on strategy and driving measurable results. The incredible team at Cober has utilized this creative and innovative approach to produce updated materials for KWCF.

Cober also lends its support to a wide variety of other charitable organizations throughout Waterloo Region and beyond, supporting the arts, medical research, recreational activities and other not-for-profit endeavours. A strong team spirit exists within the company and that spirit carries through to their employees’ interest in supporting community.

Cober has developed a reputation of goodwill over the past 100 years within our community that is well deserved. So it is only fitting they should receive thanks from KWCF for their continued support and collaborative partnership. Visit www.cobersolutions.com to learn more about this community-minded business.
