EIG Core Value: Philanthropy
We strive to make our community a better place by promoting the welfare of others and giving back with time, talent and monetary donations. Below are examples of the initiatives we are currently supporting:
We are committed to giving back to organizations important to our community and our employees. EIG will contribute 1% of our gross revenue each year to our EIG Charitable Foundation so that the foundation can give back, sponsoring organizations in our vibrant philanthropic community based on the recommendations of our board and employees.
Milwaukee’s Philanthropic Community
Each week, two non-profit organizations are featured on our radio show, Milwaukee’s Philanthropic Community. Tune in to WISN AM1130 at 10:00am every Sunday. For past shows, please visit our Radio Shows or download via the Apple Podcast, Google Play, Stitcher or Spotify applications. To be featured on the show, please contact Jill Economou, Director of Community Outreach, firstname.lastname@example.org.
Each EIG employee is encouraged to use one workday to volunteer for an organization of their choice. As a team, we volunteer at organizations like the Hunger Task Force and Soles for Jesus. Employee volunteer hours are highlighted in our quarterly newsletter. In addition, many of our team members serve on the board of directors for organizations including Rogers Memorial Hospital Foundation, Fondy Food Center, Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF), Humane Animal Welfare Society (HAWS) and more.
Charities which are selected by our employees and celebrated on that individual’s work anniversary receive a $1,000 donation from the EIG Foundation. Employees can help all of our selected charities by contributing for wearing jeans on two designated Fridays each month. We also host collections for items such as books, socks, undergarments, mittens, gift cards, toys, crayons, etc.
