We Believe in Charity
Gatestone & Co. has a long history of making direct donations to charities, and regularly organizes fundraising and charity events based on our employees’ interests and passions. In 2016, the Toronto office supported 13 charities through regular fundraisers and drives while the Phoenix office held regular fundraisers focused on one charity per quarter.
Why do we do it? The answer is: one part pure charity plus one part self-interest. Employees like to work for an employer that demonstrates its corporate social responsibility by actively supporting employee-driven initiatives in the workplace. Working together on fundraisers (sometimes competitively) helps to solidify teams and to enhance co-worker relationships.
We know that every dollar we raise helps the charities we choose in their cause. Gatestone’s management and employees enjoy the benefits of employee engagement and the satisfaction in helping others. It’s a Win/Win/Win!
