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 employees, the program provides employees with opportunities to donate, learn and get more involved with great organizations.
We understand that there are a lot of great causes out there, and twice a year, our employee-led committee (FC2) asks for organization nominations from employees. Our employees are passionate about the work they do, at the office and in the community. Those who are directly involved with an organization, or directly affected by the services that one provides, are encouraged to nominate those groups. Employees can still nominate an organization even if they aren’t actively involved with the group.
The program’s sponsored organizations change each week. Below are this quarter’s recipients:
