AES Gives Back is our company’s new annual giving program. After attending SPARKS AND SIPS: The Power of Purpose event, we re-evaluated our community involvement. During that event, we decided we wanted our employees to be involved in selecting the organizations for AES’ corporate giving efforts. Here’s how AES Gives Back works:
At our annual holiday party we recognize two staff members who have gone above and beyond to help out at events throughout the year. AES Gives Back allows those two award recipients to each select a non-profit that they support, are involved with, or just simply like! AES will then support that organization in some manner. We will announce one in the summer before our annual picnic and one in December before our annual holiday party.
For our inaugural pick, Jill selected Midwife International. Her daughter works there and they truly do some amazing work. We were able to donate to their Indiegogo Campaign for Midwives in Guatemala that was then matched by Midwives International!
