Last Tuesday, Vertical Bridge announced that it has donated more than $1.5 million to charitable organizations in 2019. This is the largest annual contribution since Vertical Bridge’s founding just five years ago, and a nearly 20 percent increase over last year’s contributions. Vertical Bridge employees also contributed more than 1,100 hours volunteering with the organizations of their choice.
This year’s efforts were spread across 155 charitable causes, all chosen by Vertical Bridge employees or clients. Just some of this year’s initiatives included:
- Over $113,000 donated to Hurricane Dorian relief efforts including supporting short-term needs such as food, water, shelter and medical supplies, as well as long-term recovery assistance such as the rebuilding of homes and towns.
- More than 170 Vertical Bridge employees participating in the construction, painting and filling of 75 standalone libraries to benefit Little Free Library’s literacy efforts at the firm’s annual meeting. In total, this event represented a $45,000 contribution from Vertical Bridge to Little Free Library.
- $40,000 given to DonorsChoose.org, as a result of donations made on employees’ behalves. The firm’s contributions resulted in more than 300 classroom projects around the country receiving new funding, directly impacting over 38,000 students.
