Chico, California (PRWEB) January 17, 2014
North Valley Community Foundation announced today the debut of The Hignell Companies Foundation. The Hignell Companies’ corporate values include intentional giving, and the newly created Foundation is one way that these values will be demonstrated moving forward.
At The Hignell Companies Foundation their philanthropic giving will closely align with their corporate mission: Creating Caring Communities that Transform Lives. The focus clearly states who they are and their core beliefs. They start with their employees and seek to build opportunities within their managed communities and the community at large.
In the spirit of the mission, the Foundation will highlight two funds: The Employee Care Fund and the Community Impact Fund. By focusing on both their own employees and the community at large the company will be living out their values holistically.
“Our methods are simple: we work in and through relationships, seek to honor and encourage one another, demonstrate unwavering integrity, practice uncommon generosity, and foster growth and innovation,” said Phil Larios, The Hignell Companies President and CEO.
The Hignell giving programs—the Employee Care Fund and the Community Impact Fund—embody these principles and beliefs. They seek to honor God’s love through their own practice of uncommon generosity and truly inspire their employees and the community at large to live out their divine destiny.
“The Hignell Companies are leading the way in corporate giving, said Alexa Benson-Valavanis, CEO of the North Valley Community Foundation. “They are known for their generosity in the community and this step forward gives a clear message to potential recipients what matters most to them and the process by which decisions can be made. The initiation of an Employee Care Fund sends a strong message to their team that the company wants to be there for their needs too.”
