On September 26, Superfeet, a 100-percent employee-owned company, hosted its second annual Giving Fair putting a portion of the organization’s giving decision in the hands of their employee-owners. Last year employee-owners collectively donated $65,000 to causes near and dear to their hearts. This year Superfeet is doubling each person’s giving power, with every one of their 140 employee-owners receiving $1,000 cash to direct to causes important to them.
“Every day we strive to improve lives through the products we make and the causes we engage with,” explains
“The Superfeet team is comprised of individuals who believe a healthy, happy community is more important than a number on a balance sheet, and they’re proud to make decisions that will impact the direction of the business, including how and where our philanthropic efforts are used,” said Annie Quammen, director of human resources.
The Giving Fair is funded by Superfeet’s 1% giving program, with 1% of consumer purchases earmarked to help people shape a healthy future for themselves and their communities.
