The Power of Giving Back

GetGrounded_logo_vfThe Get Grounded Foundation recently announced its latest round of grants to four local community programs supporting youth services. A total of more than $17,000 was granted to Child Advocates – CASA of Jefferson & Gilpin Counties, The Bridge Project, The Denver Children’s Advocacy Center and PCs for People. The programs were selected by a volunteer committee made up of individuals from GroundFloor Media and our sister agency CenterTable.

The foundation seeds funding for new or expanded, innovative or entrepreneurial programs or projects within an existing, qualified nonprofit that directly supports the healthy development of at-risk youth between the ages of three and 13 in the Denver Metro area.

In addition to the Get Grounded Foundation, GroundFloor Media encourages employees to actively participate in community service to make a difference through their own charities.

Throughout my career, I’ve found that companies who encourage community involvement separate themselves from their competitors, develop more loyal customers and enhance employee happiness. Participating in community service not only makes a difference to the organizations and people being served, but also makes a difference in your own personal life. Participating in community service activities helps to enhance social awareness and responsibility, while building community relationships.

As a new member of the GroundFloor Media team and as a Colorado native, it is incredibly impactful to know I am working for a company that is committed to making a difference in the Denver community.
