Anders has been named a finalist for the 2023 Corporate Philanthropy & Innovation in Philanthropy Awards in the Midsize Company category by the St. Louis Business Journal. This is the fourth year in which local partnerships are recognized for going above and beyond standard philanthropic practices in new and creative ways.
Companies are selected based on those who gave the most in charitable contributions last year based on total cash and in-kind giving. At Anders, generosity is ingrained in everything we do. In 2022, Anders employees were active members in over 160 local organizations and supported 266 not-for-profits financially and through volunteer opportunities. Anders proudly donated over $357,822 to the groups our staff care about the most.
Anders Proudly Continues Our Charity of Choice Program
Anders delivers on our core value of generosity through our Charity of Choice program, which combines fundraising activities and volunteer efforts to support one local charity each year. In 2022, the firm selected and supported Lydia’s House, raising a total of $37,262 for the organization which provides shelter and other needed services to women and children victimized by domestic abuse. Overall, the Charity of Choice program has raised more than $340,000 in the past 17 years.
For our 2023 Charity of Choice, Anders selected Missouri Veterans Endeavor (MOVE-STL). MOVE-STL provides a community for Veterans experiencing homelessness, supplying them and their families with a secure and sober environment. To support this organization, Anders will hold several fundraising events, including our 35th annual Hoops for Hope Tournament, a March Madness bracket tournament. Other events planned for this year include busy season games, a shuffleboard tournament and a Christmas in July donation drive.
Introducing a New Way to Give
In addition to encouraging in-house demonstrations of generosity, Anders created a new way for our new clients to support the causes they’re passionate about. Starting in 2022, new clients have the option of either selecting a gift for themselves or having Anders send a donation to a charity of their choice.All Insights
