“Philanthropic” is one of those words that most people know from context clues. For many of us, the first time someone hears it is when a news report (or something similar) is discussing someone’s “philanthropy,” and it’s presented as something that rich people do from time to time. However, with us here at FullTilt Team, that’s not the case. You don’t have to be rich to engage in great philanthropic activities. Even beyond that, the philanthropy we can set you up with can also build your teams stronger and provide corporate training.
Philanthropic Activities Defined
The dictionary defines philanthropy as “altruistic concern for human welfare and advancement, usually manifested by donations of money, property, or work to needy persons, by endowment of institutions of learning and hospitals, and by generosity to other socially useful purposes.” That’s a lot to unpack, but the part that speaks to us the most is the word “altruistic.” True philanthropy isn’t looking for any kind of “kick back,” it’s just about looking to do good for people. That’s what we can help with here at the FullTilt Team.
CSR Now, Always and Forever
In each of our events, there’s some degree of “CSR,” which is our acronym for “corporate social responsibility.” We believe that our events are better off for including that, in multiple ways. For example, we believe it makes teams that much stronger when they’re involved with events that will help local charities. There’s a unique feeling that comes from helping out someone else that’s frankly, well, kind of magic. We believe these kinds of unique, memorable experiences ultimately make teams that much stronger.
Wheelchair Build Challenge
Wheelchairs are not cheap. It is not inexpensive to get a new wheelchair. Moreover, they have to be designed right, they have to be purchased from the right company – indeed, wheelchairs aren’t the kind of thing that a person can just go to a store and pick up. We understand that. However, people also need wheelchairs, as they can be critically important. That’s part of the reason why we have a “Wheelchair Build Challenge” for team building. In this event, teams come together to make the best wheelchairs. Then, afterwards, they’re given to local charities.
Giving What’s Necessary
You’ll notice that our charitable events are focused solely on giving local charities items that they will need. There’s no plane fare here or anything like that: wheelchairs, non-perishable food, bicycles – these are all things that will greatly improve someone’s quality of life. Even if the bicycle isn’t technically a necessity, it can open up a whole new world to someone less fortunate that needs a bicycle. It can be an incredibly useful tool for helping them to get around the city. Your team will be stronger for having touched the lives of others, with the sort of experience that they can draw upon when they’re back at the office.
