Philanthropy at Mission Capital
By Julia Blewitt
At Mission Capital, we value philanthropy, and giving seems more important than ever. This holiday season, two charity organizations, First Bank Employee Fund (Puerto Rico) and Clean Hands for Haiti, will directly benefit from our ongoing philanthropic endeavors.
Mission’s holiday party this December will incorporate a giving component. In light of the natural disasters that have devastated Puerto Rico, which is home to many friends, colleagues and fellow Americans, Mission is requesting an entry donation that will benefit the First Bank Employee Fund. One hundred percent of the proceeds will directly support the most pressing needs of employees in Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands, many of whom have lost their homes and belongings and are still in the process of rebuilding. Mission Capital will also match each donation up to $20,000.
Another charity that Mission is passionate about is Clean Hands for Haiti. This holiday season, in lieu of paper cards, Mission will make an additional donation that will support children living in poverty throughout Haiti by providing educational scholarships and access to basic social services for them and their families.
While the holiday season is commonly a time of giving, Mission’s employees donate their time and money throughout the year. Collectively, Mission employees across the country are actively involved in over two dozen local charities.
