2019: A Record Year for Charitable Giving
One of the core values of PPC Partners is the Power to Serve. We are proud to donate time and money to causes our employees care about through the PPC Foundation. In 2019, MetroPower donated more than $391,000 to 118 deserving charities.
“Thanks to the generosity of our dedicated employees, we were able to have record giving again this year,” said Danny Gibson, President and COO for MetroPower. “Our goal is to give to organizations where our people have a passion and are involved.”
Some of the organizations that we supported in 2019 include: food banks, museums, higher education foundations, humane societies, health programs, organizations helping women and children, and programs that help veterans.
PPC Partners also contributed the PieperPower Photorealism Collection valued at more than $2 million to the Milwaukee Art Museum. The collection includes twenty-seven watercolor works of art from eleven artists, with the earliest pieces dating back to the 1960s. For many years, this art collection decorated the walls of the Milwaukee office on 35th Street, inspiring both employees and guests.
PPC employees can double their contribution up to $10,000 to non-profit organizations through the employee matching gift program. PPC Foundation guidelines also can be provided to organizations for an annual gift.
