Summer 2023 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:

Each year on a Saturday in December, wreaths are laid in the Arlington National Cemetery and 2,100 other cemeteries across America. Their mission is to remember the veterans, honor those who served and teach about freedom. Read about one of one of our team members involvement. 

"One of the things I love about working at Interstates is that they support causes that employees are involved in. I recently nominated Wreaths Across America as an organization for our Cash4Causes Program. This organization is very dear to me and my family as we got involved as a way to remember and honor my brother, Dr. Seth Vande Kamp, who died while serving his country in 2020. The contributions that Interstates gifted helped us be able to add more wreaths at the local cemetery we sponsor. We continue to remember, honor and teach through this annual program as a way to honor Seth and all those who paid the ultimate sacrifice for their country.

Thank you, Interstates Foundation, for supporting me, my family and this amazing cause!"
