Giving Back to the Community
Since inception, the Foundation has given more than $1.5 million back to our communities. Each year the Foundation selects a focus charity to be the primary beneficiary of funds raised from various Merchants-sponsored events throughout the year. This includes funds raised from our signature biennial events – the Bill Warner Sr. Memorial Charity Golf Classic and Party with a Purpose.
In addition, the Foundation matches associates’ donations, up to $400 per year, and supports paid volunteer time off to benefit eligible organizations that matter most to our associates. The matching gift program and VTO honor the diversity of associates’ giving and further represent Merchants Bonding Company’s efforts to support the communities in which our associates live and work.
