Per Mar Charity Fund
In 1980, we established our own Charity Fund, which is an internal account funded completely by employees and the company. The Charity Fund gives monetary support to organizations that work to alleviate community problems and strengthen cultural and educational programs within the communities we operate. Since 2001, Per Mar has matched every employee contribution dollar-for-dollar, which enables all of us to do more for our communities!
To date, contributions total more than $1.45 million and counting!
Not only do we give monetary support to organizations in our communities, but our employees fundraise and donate their time to local organizations as well. Volunteering is an important part of our history and culture, and we continue to look for ways to strengthen our bond with the various communities we serve.
A community partner for good.
We proudly volunteer and support many organizations, including the American Heart Association, Junior Achievement, Rotary, YMCA, Habitat For Humanity, Toys for Tots, Big Brothers Big Sisters, American Diabetes Association, Mercy Foundation, Hand in Hand, and the Handicapped Development Center. We also support first responders, local schools, museums, libraries, clubs, parks, and more!
