OmniCable Employee-Owners Show They Care by Raising $25,000 for Charities
By America's Charities on March 21, 2019
Omni Cable Corporation (OmniCable), kicked off its first-ever employee-owner giving campaign in mid-January 2019 generating over $25,000 for more than 65 charity organizations. The money pledged went to charities such as American Cancer Society National, Make-A-Wish Foundation of America, World Wildlife Fund, and more.
From January 15 – February 1, 2019, the OmniCares Committee, an employee-driven organization, partnered with America’s Charities to launch an internal online workplace giving campaign that allowed employee-owners to easily donate to the charity of their choice.
The OmniCares Committee was founded in late 2018 and works to encourage, guide, support, and celebrate the generosity of OmniCable’s employee-owners. The committee accomplishes its mission through employee-owners’ volunteer work, fundraising events, and charitable donation requests.
America’s Charities provides engagement tools to employers to help reach their philanthropic goals. “We chose to team up with America’s Charities for our first campaign due to their easily customizable, easy to navigate website, and outstanding support,” said Bill Blank, OmniCare’s Committee Member.
“From the onset of planning the program with the OmniCares Committee, we heard the passion of commitment to community as they spoke about their volunteerism program. Also, they saw that adding in an easy and simple solution to giving will only deepen their commitment and further engage their employees,” said Tamara Bibby, Client Engagement Manager with America’s Charities. “With that drive and determination, we knew that they would be successful.”
