Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) July 13, 2012
Since 2010, through financial contributions in kind donations and volunteerism, Foundation Financial Group’s social investment is over 969 thousand dollars in support of its philanthropic initiatives.
“Our corporate giving has consistently increased over the years, but I am especially impressed with the last two years. Our cash contributions and employee volunteer hours have increased by 54 percent,” says CEO Mark Boyer. “Every office and department has a philanthropy budget each quarter. We leave it up to our employees how and to whom they wish to donate. They plan the event and everybody really gets into it and goes the extra mile. It’s something that we are extremely proud of.”
“In addition to the corporate funded budgets, our employees have the opportunity to donate earned FFG Reward points to their favorite charity,” says Boyer. “At the beginning of each year, we post donation goals using a donation meter, and they always surpass expectations. This year’s goal was surpassed after only four months! We truly have the most amazing people here at Foundation Financial Group!”
In the last 45 days, Foundation Financial Group employees have participated in thirteen philanthropic events benefiting charities and not-for-profit organizations in local communities throughout the nation. Some of these include YMCA, Second Harvest, Susan G Komen Foundation, and the Boy Scouts of America.
“Through philanthropic services, Foundation Financial Group strives to provide opportunities that improve the lives of individuals in our communities,” says James Brodsky, Foundation Financial Group’s chief human resource officer. “We believe that building long term strategic partnerships with a variety of non-profit philanthropic organizations is intrinsic to our success. Our core principles of honesty, integrity and respect have not just shaped business practices, but also our commitment to community service.”
Foundation Financial Group maintains a corporate philanthropic focus on four main areas: education, workforce development, environment sustainability, and health and wellness. Unlike most corporations today, Foundation Financial Group supports a plethora of non-profit partners. Some of these partners include: Football Island, Salvation Army, Humane Society, Leukemia and Lymphoma Society, Disabled American Veterans, Ronald McDonald House, Habitat for Humanity, Red Cross, The Boys and Girls Club, St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, Big Brothers Big Sisters, and the Make-A-Wish Foundation.
