MI Charitable Foundation raises over $3.1M in 2021

GRATZ, Pa., March 3, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- With donations from its customers, vendors, team members, and partners, the MI Charitable Foundation, the philanthropic arm of MI, Milgard, and Sunrise window brands, raised over $3.1 million in 2021.

"We're all just overwhelmed with gratitude. I continue to marvel at the level of support we receive." - Gwen Mallon

This total sets a record for the MI Charitable Foundation, which was formally established in 2015 through the selfless acts and compassion of the company's team members. Fully supported by an engaged leadership team, committees at each company facility are empowered to plan and engage in fundraising and volunteer events they are passionate about. The result has been rapid growth and this year, record-breaking numbers.

"We're all just overwhelmed with gratitude," MI Foundation Specialist Gwen Mallon says. "I continue to marvel at the level of support we receive day in and day out."

The bulk of those funds came from two charitable golf tournaments and a nationwide summer concert that raised over $2.5. In addition to the money raised through those events, the MI Foundation generated thousands more through direct donations and local fundraising efforts.

Spending time on charitable projects in their own communities, team members also put in more than 3,000 volunteer hours throughout the year.

"Going out in our own backyard and helping others is a pillar of the MI Foundation," Mallon says. "It's such a big part of who we are. In fact, it was that kind of charitable work that led to the creation of the MI Foundation."
