Atmosphere of giving at Mensor

Mensor Cares is really a group of Mensor employees who have confidence in the spirit of working together and help others in need. So as to support other non-profits, an own non-profit organisation was financed and formed through payroll deductions, Susan Fisher reports:
Early 2015 a discussion started about how exactly our contributions could be used. Which associations should be funded and what percentage of our contributions would actually get there?
Could we achieve more employee participation should they were involved in making decisions as to where and how their money was spent?
Finally in September 2015, Mensor Cares was founded as a non-profit organisation. It is run wholly by employees and contains no overhead administrative costs. One hundred percent of employee donations are returned to recommended charities. A board of directors was elected for multi-
year terms.

They meet monthly to examine donation requests from agencies and make tips for funding. For tax purposes, the requesting organisation must be a registered non-profit group as well. A range of organisations received funding in 2016 ? including those that serve several thousands of clients and also smaller groups. Among those funded were the Smart Orchestra with musicians of most ages and skills and the Scheib Center, which gives mental health insurance and mental disability services to residents in the area who might not have insurance coverage.
Other recipients have already been Meals on Wheels, an area women?s group, and School Fuel, an organization that sends food to students. Mensor Cares have educated themselves about local resident non-profits and the requirements of others. Through the contributions we have created an atmosphere of giving and fostered an interest in serving our community.
