Atmosphere of giving at Mensor

Mensor Cares is really a band 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 our contributions could 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 with 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 has no overhead administrative costs. Completely of employee donations are returned to recommended charities. A board of directors was elected for multi-
year terms.
Various groups benefit
They meet monthly to review donation requests from agencies and make recommendations for funding. For tax purposes, the requesting organisation should be a registered non-profit group aswell. A range of organisations received funding in 2016 ? including those who serve several a large number of clients and also smaller groups. The type of 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 might not have insurance coverage.
Other recipients have already been Meals on Wheels, an area women?s group, and School Fuel, an organization that sends food to students. Mensor Cares have educated themselves about local resident non-profits and the needs of others. Through Insider have created an atmosphere of giving and fostered a pastime in serving our community.
