First Weber establishes a foundation
Each of us tries to support charitable causes in our communities. One by one we help out. But now, as members of First Weber Foundation, Inc. we have a way to make a combined impact. Together, we can make a stronger commitment to the communities where we live, work, and serve as volunteers. And whether it be a home or a charitable giving program, we know a strong Foundation can make a difference.
How was First Weber Foundation, Inc. started?
The initial contribution to the Foundation came from First Weber North Central, First Weber Southeast, and First Weber South Central in late December, 2005.
In January 2006, First Weber Foundation, Inc. received official charitable status from the Internal Revenue Service. Since that time, most of the Foundation’s funding comes from First Weber sales associates, owners, staff, and affiliates who make regular contributions.
A Board of Directors was selected, and each board member has accepted the responsibilities involved in meeting the standards of accountability to all participants of the Foundation. The Foundation Board guides all operations of the Foundation.
Who benefits from a foundation?
We all benefit from the work of a Foundation. By giving back to the communities in which we live and work, we strengthen the very foundation of our lives and the lives of others.
