Today, Giving Tuesday, we're kicking off the 2022/23 campaign for #FrameworkGives, our community initiative to raise awareness and support causes near and dear to us.
At FRAMEWORK, we believe in giving back to the great communities that build great companies. These communities are served by many deserving charities, support groups, and initiatives. Whether it’s an individual or collaborative effort, at FRAMEWORK we believe that helping communities thrive is fundamental to innovation.
We remain committed to giving back to the communities where we live and invest. To date, we’ve raised over $35,000 in support of amazing organizations. But our ultimate goal is $100,000 and we hope you will consider joining us in this mission by donating to one of the great charities we work with.
Beginning in 2019, #FrameworkGives raised donations in loving memory of Sarah Nicole Pocaluyko and Lily Misek by supporting SickKids, Oakville Hospital Foundation and the Canadian Allergy, Asthma, and Immunology Foundation. When the Covid-19 pandemic hit, #FrameworkGives expanded its charitable sponsorships to include Daily Bread Food Bank, Covenant House, Fare Share Food Bank, and The Greater Vancouver Food Bank.
In addition to raising donations, we have been known to push ourselves with physical feats to help raise awareness about these causes. In the past, Peter Misek, Managing Partner, ran 10 miles in under an hour (official time: 43:59!) and our team biked over 380 kms collectively to support #FrameworkGives. For the holidays, the team is running a food, toy and toiletries drive to be donated to organizations in our community. It is our mission to continue giving back to programs that we hold close to our hearts, and raising awareness for the important causes in our lives.
We hope you’ll join us by donating to one of these great charities by following the prompts here. Your funds will be directed to the #FrameworkGives foundation(s) of your choosing. For donations over $20, a charitable receipt will be issued directly from the charity.
