Mensor Cares is a band of Mensor employees who believe in the spirit of working together and help others in need. To be able to support other non-profits, an own non-profit organisation was financed and formed through payroll deductions, Susan Fisher reports:
Early 2015 a discussion started about how exactly our contributions could be used. Which associations ought to be funded and what percentage of our contributions would actually make it happen?
Could we achieve more employee participation if they were involved in making decisions as to where and how their money was spent?
Finally in September 2015, Mensor Cares was founded as a non-profit organisation. It really is run wholly by employees and has no overhead administrative costs. Completely of employee donations are returned to recommended charities. A board of directors was elected for multi-
year terms.
Various groups benefit
They meet monthly to examine donation requests from agencies and make tips for funding. For tax purposes, the requesting organisation should be a registered non-profit group as well. pressure gauge octa of organisations received funding in 2016 ? including those who serve several a large number of clients and in addition smaller groups. The type of funded were the Smart Orchestra with musicians of most ages and skills and the Scheib Center, which gives mental health insurance and mental disability services to residents in the area who may not have insurance coverage.
Other recipients have already been Meals on Wheels, an area women?s group, and School Fuel, a group that sends food to students. Mensor Cares have educated themselves about local resident non-profits and the needs of others. Through the contributions we have created an atmosphere of giving and fostered a pastime in serving our community.
