We don't want to just throw money at something that sounds good and say we've done our part. We want to know where money is actually going and how much is being received by the people who need it.
SAN LUIS OBISPO, CALIFORNIA (PRWEB) October 31, 2014
Beginning in November, the online digital printing company Docucopies.com will begin prominently spotlighting various non-profits and charities they sponsor on their website in an attempt to raise awareness of each cause.
This is a significant expansion on their commitment to philanthropy, which they've demonstrated with their support of numerous and diverse organizations throughout their existence.
As David Pressley, the company’s president and CEO, puts it:
"It's a moral duty for profitable companies such as ours to give back to society. We know how lucky we are as a successful company and as individuals, and we're happy to share some of our success by helping organizations and individuals who truly need it."
Pressley's son, Roe, works in public relationships, social media and customer service for Docucopies.com. As part of this new endeavor, he now enjoys the privilege of brainstorming and researching organizations to bring before the management board for potential spotlight and sponsorship.
"Not all charities are created equal," says the younger Pressley. "We don't want to just throw money at something that sounds good and say we've done our part. We want to know where money is actually going and how much is being received by the people who need it versus how much is lost to various fees and salaries of people who work for the organization."
Their record of social responsibility speaks for itself. Over the years, Docucopies have supported the following:
- Urban Arts Academy – a free after-school and summer arts program for at-risk youth in South Minneapolis, with hands-on programs including guided arts creation and homework help
