In keeping with our corporate charitable giving
commitment, in 2018 Breckinridge contributed $408,047
(or 1 percent of our gross receipts). In alignment with
our Ambassadors Program, our corporate giving largely
focused on our selected ambassador organizations,
followed by sustainability-aligned sponsorships and
corporate matching.
In addition to our Ambassador Program charitable giving,
we continue to support organizations and efforts that
are galvanizing investors around sustainable investing
and ESG integration. As highlighted in our ESG Investing
section of this report, in 2018 we supported organizations
like SASB, Ceres and SPI and contributed a total of
$50,515 to them for the year.
We also support and encourage employees to be generous
in their personal giving. To that end, we have a Corporate
Matching Program that helps employees maximize their
contributions. Annually, each employee is eligible for a
total up to $1,500 that can be used to match monetary
donations and/or volunteered hours. In 2018, 65 percent
of Breckinridge employees participated in our Corporate
Matching Program.
As a part of our annual holiday traditions, we continued to
invite employees to submit a charity of their choice for a blind
drawing. Five winners were selected, and each organization
received $2,000 in the employee’s name. The organizations
were Full Wheel, Inc., Beyond Type 1, MSPCA, Massachusetts
Down Syndrome Congress and Journey Forward.
