There is no doubt in our mind that giving back is an imperative part of moving forward and making true change as a company. We believe that giving is more than just making donations to meaningful causes. We use our resources and expertise to enhance those organizations whose philanthropic mission is to make the world a better place. We find ourselves most passionate about causes related to affordable housing, community development, refugee resettlement, local and small business acceleration, and supporting our most prolific cultural institutions in the arts and sciences. We wholeheartedly believe in giving a hand-up over a hand-out; this mentality speaks precisely to the way we perceive our philanthropic responsibility at CEDARst Companies.
