GM Financial Announces Primary Philanthropic Initiatives for 2013
FORT WORTH, Texas -- January 11, 2013
GM FINANCIAL today announced selection of its primary philanthropic
initiatives, or "Signature Events," for 2013: March of Dimes, Salvation Army
and United Way. GM Financial's Canadian team members will support the
Salvation Army, United Way, and the Canadian Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.
"Giving back to our communities has always been important at GM Financial,"
said GM Financial President and CEO Dan Berce. "The company is honored to
provide support from a corporate level, but we are most proud of our employees
who generously give their time and resources to help organizations that assist
those in need. For nearly 20 years, our community investment initiatives have
helped shape the culture at GM Financial while also helping to make our local
communities better places to live and work.”
GM Financial's philanthropic initiatives were chosen based on employee
interest, breadth of communities and people served, and availability of
volunteer opportunities for its team members. The company has proudly
supported both the March of Dimes and United Way for 17 consecutive years and
Salvation Army for the last 12 years in a row. In 2012, GM Financial and its
employees supported dozens of local and national charities through
contributions of time and money.
To encourage employee participation in charitable organizations, GM Financial
offers team members eight hours of paid time off to volunteer each quarter.
The company also contributes to the nonprofit agencies for which its employees
volunteer. As part of its "Dollars for Doers" program, GM Financial donates $5
for every hour, up to 50 hours per year, that team members spend volunteering
outside of work hours.
