Our Crawford Strategy team is very proud to be a part of the greater Greenville community. One way we make it better for others is by giving back. For the past 3 years, we have been proud to do that through our contribution to the United Way of Greenville County annual campaign.
United Way of Greenville supports many local programs and agencies that are dedicated to helping prepare children to start school, graduate, and find jobs and create stable homes. United Way is also leading initiatives that work toward community solutions in the areas of life essentials, school readiness, high school graduation, and financial stability.
By participating in United Way campaign, we recognize that we can make a larger impact when we work together. This year, we are proud to have been recognized by United Way of Greenville for the growth of our campaign, both by dollars and employee involvement. We received the Campaign Award of Excellence and the Chairman’s Award because we met these criteria:
- 10% increase in employee giving
- $100 or more employee per capita
- 50% or more employee participation
- One or more Palmetto Society members (giving $1,000 or more)
We met all four of these criteria, and even exceeded a few. 78% of our employees are participating in our United Way campaign, and our increase in employee giving more than doubled the 10% requirement. Crawford was one of only 142 companies (23% of United Way partners) to receive the Chairman’s Award.
In addition, we received the Campaign Award of Advancement for achieving a 25% increase in employee giving. Only 99 companies (17% of those currently giving to United Way) received this honor. We are proud of our team for recognizing the importance of the United Way’s work.
Receiving any award is an honor, but it is even more special when our team at Crawford is recognized for contributing to the community of Greenville. We are proud to be a part of the growing community of Greenville, and we are fortunate to have the opportunity to give back to the city we call home.
