Atmosphere of giving at Mensor

Mensor Cares is a band of Mensor employees who have confidence in the spirit of working together and help others in need. As Bonanza to support other non-profits, an own non-profit organisation was financed and formed through payroll deductions, Susan Fisher reports:
Early 2015 a discussion started about how exactly our contributions could possibly be used. Which associations should be funded and what percentage of our contributions would actually get there?
Could we achieve more employee participation if they were involved in making decisions as to where and how their money was spent?
Finally in September 2015, Mensor Cares was founded as a non-profit organisation. It really is run wholly by employees and has no overhead administrative costs. Completely of employee donations are returned to recommended charities. A board of directors was elected for multi-
year terms.
Various groups benefit
They meet monthly to examine donation requests from agencies and make recommendations for funding. For tax purposes, the requesting organisation must be a registered non-profit group as well. A variety of organisations received funding in 2016 ? including those who serve several thousands of clients and in addition smaller groups. The type of funded were the Smart Orchestra with musicians of most ages and skills and the Scheib Center, which provides mental health and mental disability services to residents in your community who might not have insurance coverage.
Other recipients have been Meals on Wheels, a local women?s group, and School Fuel, a group that sends food to students. Smug have educated themselves about local resident non-profits and the requirements of others. Through the contributions we have created an atmosphere of giving and fostered an interest in serving our community.
