August 2020 Chartwell employees recently rallied together—virtually of course—to help raise funds for our 2020 “Chartwell Cares” campaign, an initiative put together by the firm’s internal charity committee. This year’s campaign resulted in over $42,000 of financial support to ten different charitable organizations in our local communities across the country. In addition to donating funds, several members of our team volunteered their time, safely and socially distant, during Chartwell’s dedicated charity week which is held annually during the last week of July. Chartwell’s charitable mission is to help make the world a better place to live and we are certain that our recent efforts have done just that. We believe serving others extends beyond our professional lives. Chartwell serves and supports charitable organizations that positively impact the communities around us and enrich the lives of our neighbors. Here are the organizations Chartwell supported during our 2020 Charity Week: Minneapolis - Northside Achievement Zone, Second Harvest Heartland, Lifetrack, Southside Village Boys & Girls Club Chicago – Minds Matter Chicago Portland – Black United Fund of Oregon Orange County – Big Brothers/Big Sisters of Orange County Philadelphia – People’s Emergency Center, Youth Service, Inc., Artwell Dallas – Big Brothers/Big Sisters Lone Star Raleigh – Family Promise of Wake County New York – Big Brothers/Big Sisters of New York City Over the past several years, the Chartwell charity committee and Chartwell leadership have been working to develop a long-term mission and strategy for philanthropic efforts. This has culminated in establishing an expanded annual charity budget, paid volunteer time off for employees, and a tagline of “Chartwell Charity for Kids.” We as an organization are advocates of sustainability and believe that investing in the next generation will help improve the communities we live in and enrich the lives of our neighbors. As a relationship-based firm focused on the long-term success of our clients, Chartwell recognizes the importance of giving back to our communities. Our entire team is dedicated to upholding this value. In addition to our corporate charity events, every Chartwell professional is encouraged to support causes and dedicate time to the charitable organizations they are passionate about.
