Businessolver, the West Des Moines SaaS-based benefits administration provider, recently revealed that its allied foundation arm contributed over $250,000 to charity in 2017 with substantial support in the form of time investment from volunteers.
The firm’s Businessolver Foundation exemplifies its commitment to “Give Back,” improving health, education and community by conducting fundraising efforts and activities
"Our employees truly internalize the 'Technology with Heart' part of our culture and company," Businessolver Foundation Director Brooke Knight said. "It is evident by the time and treasure they give to the charities the Foundation supports. That spirit of selflessness is what drives the foundation and brings it to life in our communities."
With Knight’s leadership, employees successfully raised over $10,000 and contributed over 800 hours in 2017 —almost double the time investment in the previous year.
Among its sponsored initiatives Businessolver counted the Adopt-A-Wish program for Make-A-Wish Iowa; post-hurricane help in Texas, Florida and Puerto Rico; and Des Moines’ own Children's Cancer Connection, focusing on enriching the lives of Iowa families impacted by cancer.
Efforts also encompassed Habitat for Humanity service projects and education support through academic scholarships.
"It's my joy and honor to come to work each day and help channel my fellow Solvers' drive to give back," Knight said. "The genuine care, empathy, and thoughtfulness our employees show toward their community and country continues to amaze and inspire me, and I know the ripple effects of that care are felt throughout communities across the nation."
