Employees' Endowment grants $15K to local charities

The staff at Envision Financial are a generous bunch. Since 2009, grants of staff donations from employees who wear jeans on the last Friday of every month has reached over $74,000. The Envision Financial Employees' Endowment is a near and dear endowment. It's a win-win as staff get to wear jeans on the last Friday of the month and annually a group of charities are chosen by staff to receive funds from the Envision Financial Employees' Endowment.

The power of these grants lies in the fact that employees nominate the charities and a volunteer committee of employees choose the successful recipients. Stay tuned and watch this space as we highlight the nomination, the delivery of the funds and the charity! This year, $15,000 was distributed to 8 local charities:

$2,000 – Stepping Stone Community Services Society
