Gordon Flesch understood businesses could only thrive if the communities that surround them were also thriving. That spirit of charitable giving carries on in the form of annual contributions to non-profits located in the communities where our customers live, work, and play. In all, donations exceed more than $2.4 million since the foundation’s inception in 2002.

Unlike most corporate giving programs, the Gordon Flesch Charitable Foundation is managed entirely by company associates. Each year associates nominate organizations close to their hearts and close to their communities. The foundation’s board of directors reviews nominations and selects award recipients. Grants are generally awarded to non-profits that assist people dealing with disease, illness or disaster.

If you are a 501(c)(3) organization, you are welcome to apply for our next round of grants. The nomination period is January 1 through March 31.
