Hinesville, GA – The Community of Inspired Women, Inc. recently received a $1,500 gift under the Granger Matching Gift Program. The organization became eligible after an employee, Likishia Kimbrough, contributed a $500 matching gift request for the organization. In return, Grainger matched with a $1,000 gift.
“The generous donation will help in assisting CIW with our concerted effort to provide solutions to the vulnerabilities and issues of poverty, unemployment, underemployment and low graduation rates that plague our community,” said Daisy Jones, president of CIW. “We serve many women, 19 and older, by leveraging the power of women to promote access, education and support for the development of self-esteem, self-reliance, economic stability and personal growth. This gift is helping to further that mission.”
Through Grainger’s Matching Charitable Gifts Program, the company furthers its goals in social responsibility while encouraging employees to voluntarily support educational, cultural, civic and community, and health and human services organizations. According to Grainger, more than 1,900 team members directed more than $3 million to nearly 2,000 organizations through the Matching Charitable Gifts Program in 2014. The program matches employee and retiree donations on a 3:1 ratio, whereas employees and retirees contribute a donation then the company contributes twice the amount.
