The Partners Trust Charitable Giving Fund has proudly announced six additional charitable partners for the beginning of 2018, each with its own distinguished focus and commendable impact on the Los Angeles community.
Although charitable giving invariably increases as the holiday season ramps up, Partners Trust has set the precedent that the “giving season” is a year-long pledge. The company’s commitment to providing its associates with an enriching environment that empowers them to make a greater impact on their community has been acknowledged repeatedly in 2017, including being recognized as one of the best places to work in Los Angeles by the Los Angeles Business Journal.
This year, the Charitable Giving Fund put on many events and campaigns. A beauty product drive was put on in each office to aid in the valiant efforts of The Beauty Bus and, this past Thanksgiving, each office collected, packed and donated the makings of 180 Thanksgiving dinner bags for families via L.A. Family Housing.
In 2016 the Charitable Giving Fund had its largest impact yet, raising $100,000 for six recipients, and in 2017, is poised to trounce the success of the previous year for the benefit of 12 partners, including Children’s Hospital of Los Angeles, Pasadena Educational Foundation, Children’s Burn Foundation, National Breast Cancer Coalition, Cancer Support Community, Ronald McDonald House Los Angeles, A Place Called Home, the Beauty Bus Foundation, the Charlotte & Gwenyth Gray Foundation, San Gabriel Valley Habitat for Humanity and the Pasadena Youth Symphony Orchestras.
Now, for January through June 2018, the Charitable Giving Fund has committed to six new partners and will raise funds and serve the needs of these acclaimed organizations:
Sea Save Foundation
