About Our Community Partnerships
Our community impact is guided by four important principals. They allow the community to support our efforts with the least potential for conflict and with full disclosure of our process.
- We will partner with local, non-profit, community organizations – ensuring our profits will always be used to improve the quality of life in our own backyards.
- Our partners will be secular, apolitical organizations in existence to help people help themselves to improve their lives.
- Our Board of Directors is empowered to make all the decisions regarding the organizations we select to be our partners.
- The Board will hold our executive leadership accountable to maximize our profits while growing our firm and will allow the public to view our records.
Impact Makers wants our community impact to surpass the financial support we provide our partners. We encourage our firm’s employees to support and partner with nonprofits by spending time with them.
We encourage employees to spend part of their time working with our partner organizations while being paid by Impact Makers. In this way, our support and partnership with local nonprofits deepens well beyond the fiscal support our firm supplies and provides the opportunity for our people to make a personal impact on their community.
