Natixis kicks off giving campaign in February

Natixis volunteers

Valentine’s week kicked off Natixis Investment Manager’s Employee Giving Campaign.

St. Francis House is one of eleven partner charities that benefits from the generosity of Natixis and its employees. The campaign kick-off event allows Natixis employees the opportunity to learn about the mission of nonprofit partners like St. Francis House and commit to donating in support of the charities they feel passionate about. Natixis then matches those contributions, leading to sizable donations to organizations like ours. As a generous partner and supporter, we are honored to be among the charities benefiting from this event.

Volunteering with us prior to the event

Prior to the campaign kick-off event, on Monday of Tuesday of Valentine’s week, several Natixis employees served and prepped meals in our kitchen.

Candy brings a crowd to the event

Each partner charity has the opportunity to host an event at Natixis to help spread the word of their mission and to engage Natixis employees in a little fun along the way. Each charity partner has a Charity Champion, who takes on all facets of planning and hosting the event, allowing the charity partners to simply join in and talk about the work their organization does. This year we hosted a candy bar, which was a big hit on Valentine’s Day. Employees came together at our candy bar to learn about St. Francis House and beat the afternoon slump.

How to Get Involved as a Corporate Partner

What makes a strong corporate partner is an organization that embraces the work and embeds themselves in our organization. Beyond their generosity through donations and event sponsorships, there are some ways Natixis engages with us that you may also be interested in as a corporate partner:

  • Mark Doyle, EVP, Strategic Marketing and Global Product at Natixis, has served on our Board of Directors for the past four years.
  • Natixis employee Sean Kaukas is one of our Charity Champions and is also one of our Emerging Leaders!
  • David Cavanaugh, a Natixis employee, ran on our 2017 Boston Marathon team, fundraising on our behalf!
  • Natixis employees regularly volunteer in groups and host drives on our behalf for items like clothing that help to serve our guests.

If your organization is passionate about supporting your community, we’d love to start a conversation around how you can get involved with St. Francis House.  Email us to learn more.
