Quorum Review IRB is thrilled to announce it has broken records in giving this year. Employees of Quorum and its consulting and technology division, Kinetiq, donated nearly $20,000 to United Way of King County in 2018. Quorum matched up to $200 for every employee donation, adding over $11,000 to the contribution. The total community impact is greater than $30,000—an all-time record for the company! Quorum also broke a record with the number of employees giving this year.
An Organization with Heart
United Way of King County’s mission is to bring caring people together to give, volunteer, and take action to help those in need and solve King County’s toughest challenges. United Way aims to build a community where people have homes, students graduate, and families are financially stable. Some of the organization’s more specific goals are below:
• Reduce the number of unsheltered people.
• People who have experienced homelessness do not return within two years.
• Decrease the number of youth of color who are homeless.
Helping Students Graduate
• Prepare kids for kindergarten.
• Engage disconnected youth.
• Help youth of color gain college credits.
Building Financial Stability
• Alleviate poverty.
• Reduce food-insecure kids in South King County.
When Quorum and Kinetiq employees give to United Way of King County, they can direct their gifts to the organization’s specific priorities or donate to a nonprofit of their choosing. This year some employees channeled their money to nonprofits that help fight breast cancer, offer support services for the homeless, and provide shelter for stray cats.
“Quorum employees have been giving to and through United Way for more than a decade,” says CEO Cami Gearhart, “and we’re proud to be supporting so many families and others in our community.” United Way’s goal of building a beneficent community reflects a portion of Quorum’s own mission statement; we strive to build a community dedicated to the well-being of all people.
Plus, Quorum gives back to those who give — the company celebrated employees who donated with a pizza party, gift card giveaways, and a chance to share what causes they were passionate about.
