Austin Gives Spotlight: vcfo
Posted on 03/07/2023 by Ellen Wood - President & CEO of vcfo
Giving back to the community has been a core value for vcfo since inception 27 years ago. Over the years our initiatives coalesced into vcfo gives®. As we look ahead to 2023, I want to share more about what I consider a critical value to vcfo.
Giving back to the community is important to the vcfo team and likely quite important to your employees as well. If you don’t already have a focus in this area, I encourage you to consider formalizing your own giving program or starting one. Elevate the importance in your company culture as well with your personal engagement. Engage your employees in deciding what you want your plan to look like and what to support.
Our vcfo gives® giving goal for 2023 is $100,000 in direct giving. Many of you do way more than we do. Bobby Jenkins with ABC Home & Commercial Services is one example. He has been a lightning rod for philanthropy, as well as recruiting other businesses together under the group Austin Gives (which he helped start), all of whom commit to contribute at least 1% annually of pretax profit. This group does great work recognizing those leaning in to support the community in an effort to encourage others to do the same. We are proud Austin Gives members.
At vcfo, we are looking forward to a strong 2023 and wish the same for each of you. Let’s spend some of our success this year supporting our nonprofit community together.
