SmartEquip is pleased to announce their corporate charity partnership with St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital by kicking off an employee giving campaign to help raise critical funds to support its lifesaving mission: Finding cures. Saving Children. ®
September has been designated Childhood Cancer Awareness Month to bring awareness to childhood cancer. Childhood cancer is the leading cause of death by disease for children under the age of 14.
“It is important to support meaningful charitable causes as a company”, says Fernando Pinera, CEO of SmartEquip. “Personally, I am inspired by St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital and their dedication to leading the way for how the world understands, treats, and defeats childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases. The advancements made at the St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital are a direct result of contributions from companies like SmartEquip and its generous employees.”
The company’s charitable program encourages employees to participate by matching 50 cents on every dollar they raise. Employees can choose to pledge a one-time contribution or an ongoing payroll deduction to support St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, as well as participate in company-wide volunteer opportunities and events.
SmartEquip has partnered with Curetivity, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization formed to assist in the fight against pediatric cancer. Based in Darien, CT, the organization serves as their local point of contact for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital volunteer opportunities, funding campaigns and events.
To date, Curetivity has raised $25 million to the foundation, naming them one of the hospital’s largest non-corporate fundraising partners.
