Raleigh, North Carolina (PRWEB) November 21, 2013
Foundation Financial Group joins North Carolina in recognizing and paying tribute to the ways partnering with nonprofits improves both volunteers and communities. Nonprofit Awareness Month is a statewide initiative to raise public awareness each November for the nonprofits that enrich and enliven North Carolina communities.
Nonprofits provide 425,000 jobs in North Carolina and direct about $38 billion back into the state economy each year. As economic hardships increase, so does the demand on nonprofit services. Nonprofit Awareness Month is an opportunity to consider how these organizations impact society by delivering essential services to those in need, educating the public, advocating for policy changes, and bringing people together.
Supporting a worthy charity requires more effort than simply writing a check. Foundation Financial Group has partnered with nearly 200 nonprofits and supports both national organizations and local events. The financial services corporation places a special emphasis on active volunteerism by encouraging employees to donate time and talents to the causes that inspire them.
“Volunteering is positive on many different levels,” said Jana Young, an employee at FFG’s Raleigh Regional Sales Center. “The smallest action can have a profound impact on others. Our recent clothing drive for Goodwill was a chance for Foundation Financial Group to help people stay warm this winter while bringing the team together. ”
Foundation Financial Group has focused its philanthropic efforts through initiatives that target education, health and wellness, workforce development, and environment sustainability. The goal of FFG’s philanthropy is to enrich communities and people’s lives. Through employee-organized campaigns, Foundation Financial has invested over 1.7 million dollars in its communities since 2010.
“Our employees are at the heart of what makes Foundation Financial Group’s philanthropic efforts so successful,” said Chief Human Resources Officer James Brodsky. “Whether they are helping clients accomplish their financial goals or painting at an elementary school, FFG team members give 100 percent.”
