CAPTRUST Extends Firm’s Philanthropic Reach During Pandemic
The Challenge Campaign
CAPTRUST launched a Challenge Campaign in April to raise $100,000 to help those severely impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. By May, the campaign had garnered more than $144,926 in contributions. Funds collected are providing much-needed meals for children and families, support for essential employees struggling to find childcare, resources for distance learning, and more.
In March, CAPTRUST doubled the firm’s employee-recommended Small Grant program to $2,000 for organizations directly impacted by COVID-19. From the middle of March through the end of May, CCF has provided small grants to 69 organizations across the country, distributing more than $142,000 for personal protective equipment for healthcare workers, help for those experiencing shortages of food, clothing, personal hygiene supplies, and other COVID-19 related hardships.
Colleagues put their best virtual foot forward to help those waiting in long lines or struggling to feed themselves and their families as a result of the pandemic. CAPTRUST offices in Texas, North Carolina, New York, Michigan, and Florida arranged virtual food and clothing drives to help boost support for the members of our community who have been impacted by the coronavirus pandemic.
