Every year, Ledgeview Partners team members participate in “Bowling for Charity”, an event that aims to raise money for local, national, and global organizations of the employees’ choices.
These charities are often present in the employees’ lives in some form, and we saw this come to fruition once again in 2019 with inspiring reasons and stories about why our team is passionate about giving back to these specific organizations (below).
Throughout the year, our team participates in programs that have shaped Ledgeview’s give-back business model, including:
- Year-round Compassion International Pen-Pal Program
- Annual “Backpacks for Kids” Drive
- Annual Thanksgiving Food Program
Giving back is at the core of Ledgeview Partners’ business model, and our team lives this value in and outside of the workplace. We see this quality shine in new and seasoned employees …
Much of our staff volunteers in their local communities, whether with Wisconsibs, School co-curricular programming, the Boys & Girls Club of the Fox Valley, Girlscouts, Pop Warner Football, Soccer leagues, or another organization.
This year, our enthusiastic team raised money for:
- Fox Valley Autism Treatment Program
- American Parkinson Disease Association (APDA)
- The Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin
- The American Cancer Society
- St. Joseph’s Food Program
- St. John’s Food Program
- Freedom House
- Homeless Connections
- The Housing Partnership
- The Fox Valley Warming Shelter
- and The Ashley Anderson Fund, in Remembrance of Ledgeview’s own, Mark Anderson
At the end of 20 bowling games, Ledgeview Partners employees raised more than $3,600 for charity altogether. Over the life-span of this annual event series, Ledgeview has raised close to $20,000 for charities.
This outcome truly is a reflection of the generosity that fuels our employees’ drive and makes our culture shine.
Reflecting on this year’s event, CEO of Ledgeview Partners, Lisa Benson says:
“At Ledgeview, we focus on giving back as one of our core values. It is essential to how we run our business and create our culture. Community involvement is our commitment and passion, and we are thrilled to continue this annual tradition, and realize these dynamic outcomes.”
Ledgeview leadership thanks employees and community members for making this annual program a success, and sends a special thank you to The 10th Frame for hosting us this year.
We look forward to more give-back initiatives with you in 2019.
