#TopsideCares is a program to help local organizations tell their story! Each quarter we spread awareness for a specific organization & highlight how they make an impact. With your help, we'll match your donations up to $2,500.
This quarter, we are supporting the Love Thy Neighbor! We are matching donations for this organization up to $2,500 total until the end of September, 2023.
We're here to make an impact.
We believe in investing in our community by helping organizations associated with animal rights, housing, hunger management, and education initiatives. Each quarter we choose a community partner, raise funds for their cause, and match the donation up to $2,500! We also invest in our communities via sponsorships. If your organization applies to any of our community pillars described below, go ahead and submit a sponsorship request form.
Please note that we do not sponsor golf tournaments.
Our community pillars include:
In 2019 we rescued our Chief Barketing Officer, Sidney Pawsbie. Our area is full of great organizations that work tirelessly to save and protect our furry friends just like Sidney and it is our honor to support them.
Having a safe place to call home is a basic human need that, unfortunately, many struggle with. Homelessness and housing instability are a community problem and we are proud to do our part in helping to solve it.
Food insecurity impacts every community in America, including our own. Our employees and members consistently raise money and donate supplies to fight this problem in our area and are always looking for new opportunities to do so.
"Education is not the filling of a pail, but the lighting of a fire." - W.B. Yeats
We proudly support our schools and educators and are honored to offer Financial Education of our own to our entire community.
Giving guidelines and eligibility
It's vital that your donation/sponsorship request aligns with our community pillars. While we'd love to support everyone, we're unable to fill every request we're sent. Requests must be from local organizations within the King George, Westmoreland, Caroline, Fredericksburg, Spotsylvania, and Stafford areas. All requests should be made at least 30 days prior to the event or sponsorship deadline, and you can expect a response within 14 business days.
