Louisville, KY, January 20, 2018 --(PR.com
)-- ARGI, a Louisville-based personal and business financial advisory firm, celebrates a successful year in building the company’s philanthropic arm, ARGI Gives, which is dedicated to improving the lives of others in the communities they serve.
Created in the last quarter of 2015, ARGI Gives provides grants and volunteer support to nonprofit organizations in the communities of Louisville, Kentucky; Bowling Green, Kentucky; Elizabethtown, Kentucky; Cincinnati, Ohio; Indianapolis, Indiana; and Grand Rapids, Michigan. In 2017, ARGI Gives chose to expand its reach to include the entire states of Kentucky, Ohio, Indiana and Michigan.
In 2017, ARGI employees donated over $35,000 which provided 23 grants to regional nonprofits and charities. In addition, ARGI employees donated over 815 hours of volunteer service among the staff of over 135. Each quarter, ARGI employees are provided volunteer opportunities that support a local nonprofit or charity in their communities.
This year, the company embarked on its first annual all-firm volunteer day in April. Each employee at ARGI was given the opportunity to landscape and volunteer at the Home of the Innocents in Louisville. This one day of giving had an impact of over $10,000 for the nonprofit. ARGI Gives hopes to continue to provide annual days of service in 2018 and beyond.
ARGI Gives Chair Emily Trujillo stated, “Service is at the heart of our company’s mission. We believe that through our time, talent and monetary support ARGI Gives can have a positive impact in our surrounding communities. While we’re proud of our accomplishments in 2017, we are always looking for new opportunities to help those in need by either volunteering or through our community grant program.”
ARGI Gives provides quarterly grants based on four core focuses: education, environment, health, and family/youth. The grants will be available to 501(c)3 organizations located in any of the six ARGI branch communities, and whose mission aligns with the four core focuses. Details regarding the grant, the application process and a list of 2017 grant recipients are available at www.argi.net/argi-gives.
