Annual project supports 24 local non-profits, recommended and voted on by employees
WEST DES MOINES, Iowa–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Sammons® Financial Group, Inc. announced the results of its annual Community Outreach Program. The initiative, started in 2018, empowers employees to nominate their favorite local charities each spring. The employees who choose to make nominations are then given the opportunity to educate their coworkers on the mission of the organization and why they are passionate about it. All employees then get to vote on the organizations they would like the company to support financially.
“At Sammons Financial Group, we give our time, talent, and treasure to hundreds of organizations across our communities,” said Teri Ross, West Des Moines site leader. “We have multiple charitable giving programs in place, but the Community Outreach Program is very special. Each year we discover new organizations that our employees are either actively supporting or receiving services from.”
Ross added, “As an employee-owned company, we feel it is important to support organizations our employees care most about. That support shows up financially as well as in the form of thousands of volunteer hours each year.”
The following organizations will receive funding from the Sammons Financial Group Community Outreach Program in 2023:
