Community Involvement Spotlight

Community Involvement

American Heart Association

Heart Walks & Heart Ball

Each year, Faith Technologies sponsors heart walks in Kansas and Oklahoma, and encourages employees and their families to participate in an effort to promote healthy lifestyles and show support for the American Heart Association (AHA).

More than $41,000 was raised during the walk events to support the prevention of heart disease and stroke. In 2018, for the fifth consecutive year, Faith Technologies also supported the Kansas City and Madison, WI Heart Ball, which raised more than $1,000,000 for the AHA.

Fox Cities Environmental Learning Campus

Bubolz Nature Preserve

Faith Technologies was the leading corporate sponsor of the new 18,000 square foot environmental center at the Fox Cities Environmental Learning Campus at Bubolz Nature Preserve in Northeast Wisconsin. Faith provided marketing, in-kind electrical services, project leadership and financial support to help the non-profit organization become self-sustaining.

In addition, we partnered with Schneider Electric to build a state-of-the-art microgrid to power the building with renewable energy. The project not only provides free energy to the non-profit nature preserve, it educates students and visitors about the most advanced energy conservation methods in the world. As the first-of-its kind in the Midwest, the microgrid demonstrates the cleanest, most reliable and efficient energy solutions available today.

Community Involvement

Habitat for Humanity

Rock the Block Program

More than 40 Faith Technologies employees volunteered to paint houses, repair fences, do yard work and install windows on September 14 and 21, 2018. It was part of Habitat for Humanity’s two-week Rock the Block program, which included multiple home repair projects in four Northeast Wisconsin neighborhoods.

Rock the Block provides a path for homeowners, organizations and volunteers to come together to assist low-income residents with needed home repairs. The end result is a revitalized neighborhood and positive, community connections that are made throughout the process. Faith Technologies also provided a $20,000 donation to support the effort.

Other Charitable Support

American Cancer Society

Several of Faith Technologies’ offices participate in fundraisers for the American Cancer Society, including the Relay for Life in the Fox Cities, Making Strides Against Breast Cancer in Milwaukee, and Gunning for Hope in Madison.

In 2017, the Milwaukee branch sponsored a Making Strides team to honor an employee and raised over $3,500, one of the top ten in over 250 teams.

For more than 30 years, Faith Technologies has provided in-kind donation support to Rawhide, a residential care and outpatient mental health services organization dedicated to helping at-risk youth and their families. Located in the heart of Wisconsin, Rawhide has changed the lives of thousands of youth that have either lived on the residential campus or received services through their outpatient counseling clinics.

Their faith-based program and servant leadership approach has achieved a 73%-80% success rate, one of the highest in the country for court-referred youth, according to Guidestar. To learn more about Rawhide, visit their website or order the book www.Our351Sons.com that tells the story of how it all began. Proceeds from the book support the mission of Rawhide.

The other three participating charities included:  American Foundation for Suicide Prevention, National Park Trust and Fisher House.
