2020 is starting off strong for our JX Gives Back program! Our corporate outreach manager, Rick Smith, shares the latest developments.
JX’s number of associates signed up for the payroll deduction/contribution program continues to grow every month. We encourage associates to submit charitable organization considerations to their JX Gives Back Committee representatives. This growth parallels the continued increase in the number of awards we issue. Requests through our donation request form also continue to increase. We welcome customers to submit requests as well!
In 2019, JX Gives Back donated $135,997 in awards. We expect to surpass that record in 2020. Additionally, our Volunteer Time Off (VTO) program hours are also growing every month.
Our philanthropy supports many areas of society. We are improving conditions for those less fortunate and suffering. We offer aid to those affected by or struggling with circumstances out of their control. Each week, we receive letters from organizations we assist, thanking us for our generosity. We are proud to be the kind of company that cares, that actually believes in giving back.
Finally, our program is well on its way to reaching a nonprofit 501(c)(3) status. The certification process is a complex and detailed one, but we expect to complete it by the end of the year.
Thank you for being part of this rewarding and wonderful program.
