Online Travel Agency Donates to Non-Profit Organizations
In November 2017, Fareportal, the travel technology company powering CheapOair.com and OneTravel.com, launched it’s Personal Impact Program; a corporate social responsibility (CSR) initiative driven by the passions of its employees. Over the course of 12 months, employees nominated their most-cherished non-profit organizations for the opportunity to have a donation made on their behalf as well as to have their charity highlighted within the company’s internal communications initiatives.
“The Personal Impact Program was designed to give our employees more of a say in how we give back to the community,” said Corissa Leong, SVP of People & Culture. “We were excited to see the enthusiasm our employees’ put into their entries and are glad that we were able to make a difference to organizations that mean the most to them.”
Over the past 12 months, recipients spanned many categories including health and wellness, education, homelessness, and animal welfare. The organizations contributed to included:
- Team for Kids
- The Valerie Fund
- We Win
- National MS Society
- Coalition for the Homeless
- Inner City Scholarship Fund
- National Hemophilia Foundation
- Connor and Millie’s Dog Rescue
- Korean K9 Rescue
- Norma Pfriem Breast Center
- U.S.T.L.E.365 Inc.
“As a global company, we are involved with charity organizations all over the world,” said Sam S. Jain Founder and CEO at Fareportal. “We started the Personal Impact Program to increase employee engagement in our corporate social responsibility efforts and this year the program proved to be a great success. We are excited to continue partnering with employee-chosen non-profit organizations in the year ahead.”
