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) March 26, 2013
One of the country’s fastest-growing financial services corporations, Foundation Financial Group, is also a caring company. 904 Magazine named Foundation Financial Group one of their Companies with Heart in 2013.
While American corporate and charitable giving was down in 2012, FFG’s charitable giving increased 450 percent over the previous year. In 2012, Foundation Financial Group surpassed $1.1 million in monetary donations in addition to an unparalleled 78.64 percent participation rate among the company’s employees at corporate philanthropy community outreach events such as the St. Baldrick’s Foundation, the Salvation Army, Disabled American Veterans, Habitat for Humanity, and the National Ovarian Cancer Coalition, among many others. Company-wide, Foundation Financial participated in 49 charity events and outings last year.
“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.”
FFG 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.
The philanthropic services department empowers management to create committees quarterly who in turn organize events and finds local philanthropic organizations that truly need FFG’s support. Because of this program that is managed by the employees, we have extremely high participation rates and events grow larger and more successful year after year.
904 Magazine features Foundation Financial Group in its February 2013 issue and honored the company during its second annual Corporate Awards Luncheon on February 28 at River City Brewing Company in downtown Jacksonville, FL.
Jacksonville Magazine started Companies That Care in Northeast Florida more than a decade ago and transitioned that awards program to the Companies with Heart Award in 904 Magazine, its sister publication. Foundation Financial Group has been a Companies with Heart and Companies That Care recipient for three years running. FFG earned this prestigious award, and several others, for the company’s various community service contributions.
