Nashville is the 5th most charitable city in the nation, so it’s perhaps no surprise that Nashville entrepreneurs are big on giving back to the community during the most “giving” time of the year. Here’s a sample of what companies from EO Nashville are doing this holiday season:
- Advance Financial is hosting a company talent show, and company is making a donation the winner’s charity of choice will. The company is also giving employees paid time off to participate in volunteer opportunities with local organizations, like Nashville Rescue Mission, Youth Villages and Youth Encouragement Services. Plus, they are collecting at least 7,000 of the items most-needed by local food pantries.
- Anchor Investments asked clients to nominate their charities of choice. From among those submitted, Anchor’s Charitable Giving Committee will choose five nonprofits to receive US$1,000 donations for each.
