Fall 2022 Cash For Causes


What Is Cash for Causes?

Cash for Causes is a year-round, Interstates program that raises funds to support local, non-profit organizations. Through employee giving, Interstates impacts 52 non-profit organizations each year. With a commitment to promoting community awareness and service among our teams, the program provides team members opportunities to donate, learn and get more involved with great organizations.   

Our employee-led committee (FC2) asks for organization nominations twice a year. Our team members are passionate about their work in the office and the community. We encourage them to nominate organizations they're involved with, directly affected by, or are passionate about in any of the communities where Interstates serves.   

The program's sponsored organizations change each week. Below are this quarter's recipients:
