Brent McDonald, president of Tar Heel Wealth Management, believes in giving back and helping others any chance you get.
It’s the reason he and the rest of the company’s staff were excited to partner with the Catawba County United Way (CCUW) through its new Small Businesses Love Big initiative.
“There’s always more outreach that can be done and this is a good opportunity to help better the community,” McDonald said.
Small Businesses Love Big allows companies in Catawba County with 50 employees or less to invest back into their communities by supporting local non-profit programs.
Each company contributes $365 a year, which will be used to fund a second CCUW allocation process focused on local small and start-up non-profits. Representatives of the businesses will meet to review the grant applications and decide what programs to fund.
“We know that our small businesses understand and see the needs in our community from a unique perspective and giving them the opportunity to invest in their community not only makes sense but honors the contributions of both small business and non-profits,” Catawba County United Way Executive Director Mark Bumgarner said.
To learn more about the CCUW’s Small Businesses Love Big initiative call Sylvia Long at 828-327-6851 or email email@example.com.
