Getting socially involved to make a real difference!
From a corporate standpoint, Professionals’ Financial is deeply committed to causes that have a considerable social impact. At the same time, its employees are also encouraged to get personally involved in organizations in their community.
As a business, the Financial focuses most of its philanthropic efforts on the annual Centraide campaign. For many years now, we have contributed through various initiatives involving all our employees.
Centraide : the desire to change lives for life!
While Centraide’s first real fundraising campaign was held in 1975, the origins of this organization, which has now become a key player in the world of philanthropy, date back to 1966.
Today, Centraide is pursuing its mission of maximizing financial and volunteer resources, particularly by funding community agencies and working in partnership with them, in order to improve the quality of life in our community and empower its most vulnerable members to take charge of their lives.
We are proud to support this organization, which helps improve the lives of so many people each year throughout Quebec.
Other corporate initiatives
In 2017, the Financial was involved not only in Centraide’s annual campaign, but also from time to time with other organizations.
First, four teams represented the Financial at the 2017 Urban Duathlon for the benefit of the CHU Sainte-Justine Foundation. This fun and festive relay race involving both runners and BIXI cyclists helped raise funds for the CHU Sainte-Justine Centre of Excellence in Neonatal Intensive Care.
We are also involved in the “Pay it Forward” campaign for the Renaissance organization. This initiative collects toys, clothing, shoes or any other items that are in good condition which are then given to underprivileged persons and families.
Involved recurrently or on an ad hoc basis, our employees are highly committed! Whether with their local community organizations, on boards of directors, organizing fundraisers or participating in charitable sports challenges, the forms of involvement are as varied as the areas of social action.
The Financial supports this commitment in different ways, with a monetary contribution or by offering flexible work schedules when the need arises. All of the organization’s employees are encouraged to get involved in causes that they care about!
Did you know? Thanks to its scholarship program, the Financial has also been involved with the next generation of professionals for more than 10 years by supporting academic excellence and community involvement.
