One of MEM’s core values is caring, not just for those injured at work, but also for the people with whom we share our communities. Our Corporate Impact Program promotes healthy, safe and productive lives through giving, volunteerism and leadership throughout the state of Missouri.
Corporate and Employee Donations Giving Back in 2018
MEM’s corporate monetary donations in 2018 combined with more than $88,000 from our employees and their volunteer time, benefited 118 organizations throughout Missouri where our employees live and work. In fact, just over 60 percent of MEM employees donated 3,000-plus hours to volunteer in their communities this year.
Throughout the year, MEM supported numerous fundraising efforts of local charities through sponsorship, matching gifts, charitable gifts and in-kind services. Organizations within MEM’s charitable giving focus areas benefitted, including safety, health and wellness, education and skills development.
We provided more than $15,000 in in-kind printing donations for charitable causes and events in 2018.
In June and July, we were proud to support with sponsorship the athletes from nearly every county in Missouri as they competed in the Show-Me State Games.
In August, after more than 80 MEM employees volunteered at The Food Bank for Central and Northeast Missouri’s Summer Feeding Program site at McKee Street Park, MEM issued a Buddy Pack Match Challenge donating $25,000 to a campaign that raised more than $66,000 in five days to feed more than 368 children in Mid-Missouri during the 2018-2019 school year.
In September, thanks to the generosity of our employees, we were once again a Heart of Missouri United Way Pacesetter. And we raised more than $9,000 for Kids’ Chance of Missouri through our internal events during MEM’s annual WorkSAFE Week.
In November, Missouri Employers Mutual recognized 20 organizations on #Giving Tuesday by giving away approximately $55,000 on Nov. 27 to CoMoGives participants and other Missouri nonprofits.
These are just a few examples of our Corporate Impact program in action. To learn more, about MEM’s community involvement, contact us at email@example.com or 1.800.442.0593.
