These organizations are more than 501c3's, they truly are partners. We build relationships with them. Over the years, we volunteer together, serve together, give together, lead together and align so we can help each other be better and accomplish our goals.
We also spend time vetting and understanding their financial stewardship to ensure that our hearts and goals are in healthy alignment. On rare occasions, they may even consider us cool enough to serve on their boards or become permanent volunteers.
There are tens of thousands of wonderful organizations out there. TCWGlobal supports 100's financially, but we try and keep our partnerships to less than 10 per year. These are local organizations dedicated to improving the lives of our community members. They work towards enhancing quality of life through scientific advancements, providing hope to the most vulnerable, and ultimately elevating the human experience to its fullest potential.
Part of our responsibility and privilege as a business in the staffing industry is to help these wonderful men and women who are leaving special ops and joining the private sector. Supporting them through financial giving, interview preparedness, business acumen and workforce assimilation is a small way for us to help these people who have put their lives in harms way for our freedom and security!
On of our favorite events of the year is "Case for Character" by Forever Kids. Packing up these suitcases with Cooper dolls, books, and games for kids in the foster system is a blast for our team. Giving these kids a sense of dignity and “owning” something is a treasure to these souls that can feel abandoned. If we can only, we can hug these kids someday? But for now, its suitcases, money, a stuff Cooper doll and prayers!
Families around the world since 1974. When families are struggling with the care of their child, San Diego Children's hospital is the place to go and Ronald McDonald House is across the street caring for the family while they care for their child. It's truly a selfless non profit giving hope, peace, a bed a meal and a smile to parents that need the support. TCW gets to serve financially and in person. Monthly we support the meals financially and in person by actually preparing the food and serving it to the families. We are lucky we can help!
Porter Elementary ... part of the San Diego Unified School District. Our awesome teachers need all the help they can get. Keeping kids in school, engagement, supplies, guest speakers ... you name it and we're here to do our best to support this school rich in diversity and history. Sometimes we just buy the teachers a little champs (during non working hours of course).
