Strong corporate citizenship and charitable giving are high priorities of Procurement Advisors. PA has an aggressive program of charitable giving, and pledges 2% of its operating profits annually to its charitable matching fund. In addition to matching up to five thousand dollars for each employees’ charitable donations, PA also funds a variety of Member and other charitable causes up to its annual target. Recipients include qualifying charitable enterprises supporting such diverse functions as disease prevention, hunger relief, medical programs for Third World countries, orphanages, religious affiliations, scholarship funds and municipal and regional betterment enterprises.
In 2018, PA donated more than $300,000 to more than 50 different charitable enterprises. Some of the beneficiaries include the Multiple Sclerosis Association, St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital, the American Red Cross, several different hurricane relief organizations, the Multiple Myeloma Research Foundation, the Dana-Faber Cancer Institute, ABLE Charities, and dozens of other worthy causes.
As part of this commitment, PA is proud to support charitable donations and enterprises of its Member companies, and has a number of programs where we volunteer time and people-power as well as money. As an example, in February 2019, the entire PA team spent the day at a Stop Hunger Now warehouse in Marietta, GA and bagged 15,000 meals.
