Community

FWS’ charitable giving budget is reviewed annually and has grown proportionately with success achieved. We donate to organizations that tend to be where our branch offices are located, however also invest in other initiatives and organization that benefit all communities through the services they provide.

 

As do others, FWS believes it has a social responsibility to provide needed support when natural disasters occur. Unfortunately, these occur all too frequently, but and we are happy to step up when necessary. Equally important, however, are the ongoing causes that exist daily in our communities. FWS supports many causes and our employees are encouraged to participate in the “Spirit of Giving” by having their own charitable donations matched by FWS up to a predetermined level.
