We are Global Citizens
We strive to make our local communities and the world a better place. Core to our mission and aligned with our values, our focus on global community involvement is the founding principle on which we have built our business strategy. Whether it’s our investment in global organizations who share our values, being environmentally conscious in the way we conduct our services or participating in giving back to our local communities, we believe that it’s our responsibility to create positive impact on the future of humankind and the global environment.
Our team participates in initiatives in the areas of diversity, sustainability and community involvement. Some of our 2018 and 2019 efforts include:
- Annual Day of Service as part of our Company Meeting
- Company-sponsored Women’s Retreat in Partnership with Ignite
- Ronald McDonald House Charities, Upper Midwest
- Chicago Cares
- Junior Achievement of Chicago
- Tech in the Tenderloin
- St. Anthony Foundation
- Project Sunshine
SAN PANCHO, MEXICO
The Women of Spaulding Ridge had the opportunity to travel to San Pancho, Mexico with Ignite Journeys over the last four days for our women’s leadership retreat. What a life-changing journey! We had the opportunity to learn more about the San Pancho community, about Entreamigos – an organization whose mission is to increase learning opportunities for children and families through the implementation of educational programs based on principles of integration and collective community action – their impact on their local community, met their women entrepreneurs and had the chance to learn more about their at-risk youth programs along with having the opportunity to learn new skills.
CRADLES TO CRAYONS
Spaulding Ridge values giving back. At our first annual company meeting, we spent an afternoon volunteering with Cradles to Crayons Chicago, adding supplies to more than 200 backpacks for kids heading back to school.
CHASE BANK CORPORATE CHALLENGE
The Spaulding Ridge team will be participating in the JP Morgan Corporate Challenge, a 5K race that promotes health and fitness in the workplace, fosters goodwill and camaraderie, and shows commitment to the community and best environmental practices.
