CCF Announces Giving Thanks Campaign

CAPTRUST Community Foundation Donates $450,000 to Charities Across the U.S. The Contribution Was Made Possible by CAPTRUST Colleagues Raising $4.8 Million for the CCF in 2020

RALEIGH, NC – December 1, 2020 – The CAPTRUST Community Foundation (CCF), a CAPTRUST employee-run 501(c)(3) foundation whose mission is to enrich the lives of children in local communities, today announced that the organization has donated $450,000 to 45 charities around the country in honor of Giving Tuesday.

In early November, each CAPTRUST office was given the opportunity to choose a nonprofit in their community to receive a $10,000 donation through the CCF as part of the Giving Thanks campaign. The only requirement for participating was that the organization helps to provide food, shelter, or other basic needs to families.

“With the holidays upon us, we wanted to be able to quickly get support to those who need it most in our local communities,” said Tiffany Larew, CCF president. “I am so thankful to my CAPTRUST colleagues for coming together to make a real impact in our communities.”

The Giving Thanks campaign was made possible through the generous donations from hundreds of CAPTRUST employees. Earlier this year, CAPTRUST CEO Fielding Miller announced that there would be no layoffs or furloughs at CAPTRUST as a result of the economy. Throughout the year, Miller encouraged employees to give what they could to the CCF in order to meet the firm’s mission of serving clients, colleagues, and communities. The result was an additional $4.8 million added to the CCF’s endowment.
