CALGARY, ALBERTA -- (Marketwired) -- 07/12/13 -- Suncor Energy is

demonstrates the true spirit of Canadians," said Steve Williams,
Suncor president and chief executive officer. "We developed a
comprehensive flood-relief program that is delivering dollars to
organizations that have expertise in getting funds to those who need
it the most."
Suncor's flood-relief program focused on providing support in four
areas: the immediate response, re-entry programs, recovery activity
and rebuilding efforts. The funding and program has been administered
through the Suncor Energy Foundation (SEF). Suncor, through SEF, will
continue to support Alberta flood relief efforts.

the Calgary Foundation, with Suncor matching $150,000.
