Giving back to our communities is at the core of what we do at Capital One, and it’s one of the many reasons Capital One is a great place to work.
During October 26-30, Capital One hosted OneWeek 2015, a week-long celebration of our commitment to community. Capital One associates took the opportunity to get out and volunteer, learn more about all that we do in our communities and celebrate our year-round volunteerism.
Earlier this year, we launched a new community-focused initiative called “Future Edge” which will provide $150 million in community grants over the next five years to empower more Americans to succeed in the 21st century economy.
In addition to the many hours of time our associates volunteer, Capital One has a long history of supporting our communities through grants to non-profits. As part of the OneWeek 2015 celebration, we gave our associates an opportunity to vote on a nonprofit to receive a grant from Capital One.
More than 1,500 votes were cast and the winner was Money Think.
Money Think will receive a $50,000 grant from Capital One to help people take better control of their personal finances by equipping youth/young adults to believe in themselves, navigate the financial decisions of adulthood, and achieve financial independence.
Money Think’s CEO responded with the following statement:
“This is phenomenal news! Thank you so much for the ongoing support and the chance to share our mission with your employees. We couldn’t be more thrilled and grateful to put it to good use in our classrooms.”
Congratulations Capital One!
