We are thankful that we have the ability to make donations and volunteer thousands of hours to worthy organizations and causes that impact each community in which we are located in a more positive way.
Jacksonville, FL (PRWEB) February 07, 2012
One of the country’s fastest-growing financial services companies, Foundation Financial Group, is also a caring company.
While American corporate and charitable giving was down in 2011, Foundation Financial Group’s charitable giving increased 198.52% over the last year. In 2011, Foundation Financial Group made monetary donations in addition to volunteering 1,067 hours for a social corporate responsibility investment exceeding $610,000. Eighty-two percent of Foundation Financial Group’s employees volunteer time to corporate philanthropy with local charities such as the Disabled American Veterans, Florida’s Children First, Habitat for Humanity, the Museum of Science and History and Noah’s Arc. Company-wide, Foundation Financial Group participated in 34 charity events and outings.
“Foundation Financial Group is honored to have 904 Magazine recognize our corporate citizenship,” said CEO Mark W. Boyer. “We are thankful that we have the ability to make donations and volunteer thousands of hours to worthy organizations and causes that impact each community in which we are located in a more positive way.”
Foundation Financial Group began its commitment to philanthropic endeavors in 2004 and it became a key aspect to the company’s growth and commitment in the second quarter of 2010. Foundation Financial Group’s core philanthropic focuses are on health and wellness, environmental sustainability, workforce development and youth education.
Its philanthropic services department spearheads all of Foundation Financial Group’s volunteer efforts by coordinating with each division to select charities, devising a budget for each charity event and then coordinating the employees who volunteer at the events.
904 features Foundation Financial Group in its February issue and will honor Foundation Financial Group at a luncheon on Feb. 22 at River City Brewing Company in downtown Jacksonville, Fla. The Children’s Miracle Network, whose mission is to help children by actively supporting better health care, will be the beneficiary of the luncheon event.
Jacksonville Magazine started Companies That Care in Northeast Florida a decade ago and transitioned that awards program this year as Companies with Heart to 904, its sister publication. Last year, Foundation Financial Group received Jacksonville Magazine’s Companies That Care award. Foundation Financial Group earned this prestigious award and several others for its various community service contributions.
