Philanthropy With Purpose


Posted in  hidenews

Prioritizing charitable giving, to some, may seem like a distraction from work. At DMC Atlanta, though, we believe that philanthropy and producing quality work go hand in hand. Whether we're raising awareness for men's prostate and mental health or hosting a blood drive to benefit a local hospital, we know that our commitment to being socially responsible as a corporation produces better business leaders who generate better results for our clients. 

Our Recent Philanthropy Event

This past Monday, the DMC Atlanta team hosted a blood drive with Life South at one of our after-hour office favorites, Dunwoody Tavern. As one of the leading suppliers of blood to the Children's Healthcare of Atlanta, Life South calling our company and asking for help was a cosmic sign. Dunwoody Tavern, who graciously agreed to host us, allowed Life South to park their donation van and helped us attract 40 people to the event in a 2-hour time span! Of those 40 attendees, 10 donated to our cause, supplying Life South with varying blood types needed for surgeries, transfusions, and more.

Why It's Important To Incorporate Philanthropy Into Your Personal Routine

Philanthropy gives people an opportunity to get excited about a cause bigger than themselves. No matter the motivator, be it animals, kids, poverty, dental care, or curing diseases, we encourage our team members at DMC Atlanta to find what moves them and get behind it. Whether they allocate their free time outside of work to giving back or bring their ideas to our management team to get the whole company involved, we vocalize often the importance of recognizing your blessings and gifts and using them to pay it forward. With as many hours as there are in the week, we can all find time every month or quarterly to do something kind for someone else, right?! It's called good karma for a reason!

Why It's Important To Incorporate Philanthropy Into Your Organization

Work should be more than just a focus on the bottom line. Great companies believe in the development of their team members, personally and professionally, into the best version of themselves. Industry leaders who place philanthropy as a core value have better morale, employee engagement inside and outside of work, and retention because they have provided a workplace that goes beyond clocking in and out; they've provided a workplace of purpose. Philanthropy allows teams to bond, "do good", and put positive energy into the world. 

How To Find Your Cause

Maybe you know what cause hits home already, or maybe, like most, you're still trying to find what moves you. If that's the case, we encourage you to take a look at a national registry of nonprofits and decide what you would want to invest your time in. When you do find something that interests you, like donating at a soup kitchen or collecting textbooks for impoverished kids, ask your company to get behind you, whether that be through participation or monetary donation. We think you'll be surprised at the overwhelming response to help. 

What has allowed our business to scale over the last 15 years is our emphasis on integrity, mindfulness, and philanthropy. To everyone who came out to our recent event, thank you for your generosity. We consider ourselves so fortunate to be in such great company, surrounded by people who want to make a positive impact in more ways than one. Stay tuned as we gear up for "Movemeber" and aim to raise over $60,000 before 2018 ends!
