Atmosphere of giving at Mensor

Mensor Cares is a group of Mensor employees who believe in the spirit of working together and help others in need. So as 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 possibly be used. Which associations ought to be funded and what percentage of our contributions would actually get there?
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 is run wholly by employees and contains no overhead administrative costs. Completely of employee donations are returned to recommended charities. Furious of directors was elected for multi-
year terms.
Various groups benefit
They meet monthly to examine donation requests from agencies and make recommendations for funding. For tax purposes, the requesting organisation should be a registered non-profit group as well. Various organisations received funding in 2016 ? including those that serve several a large number of clients and in addition smaller groups. Among those funded were the Smart Orchestra with musicians of most ages and skills and the Scheib Center, which provides 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, a local women?s group, and School Fuel, a group that sends food to students. First Ever have educated themselves about local resident non-profits and the needs of others. Through the contributions we’ve created an atmosphere of giving and fostered an interest in serving our community.
