Employee Grant Request Program – All MC employees are eligible to request grants for charities of their choice. They do not need to financially contribute to the Foundation to request a grant. This gives employees the opportunity to designate dollars to a charity that is meaningful to them. All grant requests go through a 3-step process for approval. Requests are first vetted by the Director of Philanthropy to make certain that the requested charity meets the criteria for approval. The grant request is then forwarded to the Grant Peer Review Committee and after their approval it is then forwarded to the Board of Directors for final approval. Through this program since January 2019, SGL has supported over 65 different charities with a $500 donation to further their causes.
