Winter 2021 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 employees, the program provides employees with opportunities to donate, learn and get more involved with great organizations.

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. We encourage employees to nominate organizations they’re involved with, directly affected by an organization, or are passionate about the organization.

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