Giving back to others is an essential part of our company. In fact, Embrace Stewardship is a Core Value at Pro Athlete, and therefore, we expect every employee to be involved in giving back to our community, to organizations or causes that are important to them and those in need.
That is why we have a Charity Program that offers each employee a generous monetary allotment each year that they can use to donate to charitable organizations. We do this to empower each employee and teach them about the power of giving, as opposed to the company deciding on a couple of charities to donate to as a whole each year. We hope each employee embraces it and carries it with them, and those close to them, throughout their lives.
In 2017, Pro Athlete and its employees donated more than $58,000 to 82 different charities. Please take some time to read about the charities that our employees chose to help throughout 2017.
