A Commitment to our Community
At Phoenix Defense our commitment to corporate responsibility is a key factor in our success and takes many forms. Our mission and values define the foundation of our commitment to corporate responsibility, and our associates and leadership team embody our values and bring our mission to life every day.
As part of our commitment to enrich the community we live in, we support our associates’ involvement in community service and volunteer initiatives through our Community Connection program.
The Phoenix Defense Community Connection program is a way to embody and enact our commitment to be an ethical company and a good corporate citizen in our community and in the larger global community. We put our money where our mouth is and commit 2.5% of the company’s annual after tax net profit to charitable and socially responsible initiatives.
But we don’t just write a check once a year and move on. Our Community Connection program gives the responsibility of choosing and championing causes to our associates. In this manner it brings us together as a staff to find common interests and serve common needs in our own community and beyond. Supported by the Community Connection program, our associates are active in the community throughout the year donating time, talent, and resources to causes they believe in.
From volunteering at local homeless shelters to helping design clean burning wood stoves for the poor in Africa, our associates are realizing our shared goal of finding ways to give our time, treasures and talents to people and organizations that have a personal meaning to all of us.
