Giving Frequently – Arthritis Society Canada
Giving. Donating. Sharing. Caring. There are as many ways to describe the impetus to give as there are ways to give. We are pleased to share that our December recipient of Giving Frequently is Arthritis Society Canada.
Since day one, giving has been one of the many ways in which we are, quite simply, different. This is because helping people will always be at the heart of what we do. And it’s the reason why giving generously, frequently and consistently is an essential part of the ALIGNED employee experience.
As a result, our social responsibility program was created at the same time ALIGNED Insurance was founded. It is, quite literally, a foundational part of our organization and a way in which we work hard to lead by example. In our communities, in our industry as well as across Canada.
ALIGNED Helping Canadian Charities
We know that improving lives and advancing causes are what drive Canadian charities and non-profits. Connecting people to the community, educational, environmental, food, healthcare, and social programs is at the heart of what the not-for-profit sector does.
We also understand how deeply charities and non-profits resonate with people. In addition, we understand how important financial gifts are to helping a charity or non-profit keep delivering on its mission. This is why, each month, one of us selects a charity or non-profit organization that we are passionate about. And then we, as an organization, donate to that organization.
In December, Associate & Owner, Melissa Taft, chose Arthritis Society Canada.
“I chose Arthritis Society Canada because I watch my husband suffer daily from Rheumatoid Arthritis. It’s a daily struggle for him to complete simple tasks and work – along with all the medication he must take in order to function. His Rheumatoid Arthritis causes him to struggle with tasks most of us take for granted on a daily basis.” – Melissa
In Their Own Words: How Arthritis Society Canada helps Canadians
Arthritis Society Canada is a national health charity, fueled by donors and volunteers, with a mission to fight the fire of arthritis with the fire of research, advocacy, innovation, information, and support.
In conclusion – our commitment to giving
Social responsibility. It’s about more than just giving, it’s about people. We know it is our privilege to connect our clients with better business insurance. And we know that it is our social responsibility to help others in a number of ways.
How we are also Giving Generously…
In addition to Giving Frequently, each year, a portion of ALIGNED’s profits are donated to a registered Canadian charity. It is important to us that our clients are part of our social responsibility program. That’s why once each year, we invite each of our clients to propose a charity that is meaningful to them. And it’s why we also engage our clients in selecting the charity that receives our Giving Generously donation.
