EarthShare Georgia recognizes Kaiser Permanente for supporting environmental and conservation organizations.
Atlanta – Kaiser Permanente received EarthShare Georgia’s 2019 Outstanding Corporate Sustainer Award for exceptional leadership in supporting EarthShare Georgia member groups – trusted environmental and conservation nonprofit organizations.
Kaiser Permanente was the first company to start an EarthShare Georgia workplace giving campaign and has been the presenting sponsor of EarthShare Georgia’s annual Earth Day events since 2006. The organization has also provided grants to help support its local member groups which, combined with employee payroll donations, has provided close to $2 million to support the environment.
“We are proud to support EarthShare Georgia because we know the tremendous impact that they make in protecting Georgia’s air, land and water,” said Jim Simpson, regional president for Kaiser Permanente of Georgia. “Above all, we know how vital their work is for the health of the communities we serve.”
EarthShare Georgia is working for the day when air, land and water are clean, abundant and healthy. Founded in 1992 by environmental nonprofit organizations to expand choice in workplace giving campaigns, and to provide an efficient and secure way to manage donations, EarthShare Georgia has raised more than $6 million on their behalf. These organizations work hard every day to address environmental health risks, restore natural habitats, protect wildlife, reduce the impacts of climate change and much more.
