SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. – Aug. 13, 2019
We all wish we could give back more. Whether it is donating time through volunteerism or donating money to the causes we are passionate about, we are always left with that lingering feeling of – I wish I could do more.
Scottsdale, AZ based MC Residential LLC. gives employees the opportunity to do just that through their Employee Grant program. This well-conceived program gives every employee of MC the opportunity to submit a simple grant application ranging up to $500 on behalf of a local non-profit that they are personally passionate about.
Lyn Marquis, Director of Philanthropy facilitates each Employee Grant Request. “What strikes me most when I see our MC employees submitting requests for donations is that charitable giving is contagious” says Marquis. “Seeing others give makes an individual more likely to do the same, and a gentle encouragement from an employer to give back can make a big difference.”
In 2019 alone, the Sharing the Good Life Foundation has approved and distributed grants to 26 charitable organizations, all resulting from Employee Grant Requests submitted by MC Employees. “As a company we are constantly looking for more ways to give back” says Lesley Brice, President and Partner of MC Residential LLC. “Extending those efforts through Employee Grant Requests to each of our employees is a great way to reinforce our culture and mindset of giving back.”
