NOW Foods Partnership Provides a Powerful Reason to Come to Work
Company funds Compassion’s work to help children impacted by HIV/AIDS in East Africa
Over its almost 50-year history, NOW Foods has remained committed to sharing its blessings and good fortune with others. Each quarter, the company makes charitable contributions to Compassion and other nonprofits tied to financial results. The better the company performs, the greater the charitable funding. “People want to work for companies who are engaged in a higher purpose. When you involve the entire company in something bigger – like changing the lives of children living in poverty – it gives all of us a powerful reason to come to work,” said Powers.
The blessings from NOW Foods’ support of Compassion’s HIV/AIDS Fund are significant. Thousands of children, parents and caregivers have received vital education on HIV prevention and awareness, hundreds of thousands of voluntary HIV tests have been administered and tens of thousands Compassion beneficiaries diagnosed as HIV positive are receiving antiretroviral therapy. “Compassion is an outstanding example of an organization with an inspiring and life-changing purpose that it fulfills every day,” said Powers.
