Company Total Increasing Every Year Since Formation of Employee-Run Charitable Contribution Committee in 2012
(Napa, CA, March 05, 2018) – AUL Corp. (AUL), the nation’s premier warranty and vehicle service contract administrator, just reported its annual charitable contributions for 2017, surpassing $142,000 for the year, a 69% increase over 2016. The beneficiary organizations range from local Napa children’s charities and food banks, to national organizations serving those in need around the nation and the world. Last year’s tragic firestorms in Napa and Sonoma Counties serve as a not-too-distant reminder of the importance of being active in the community and giving back to those in need.
In 2012, AUL established a dedicated committee of non-management employees to coordinate all of the firm’s charitable contributions. These employees are challenged to research and identify local, regional, and national organizations across the spectrum of need and recommend and approve the firm’s corporate giving.
According to Jimmy Atkinson, AUL's President and CEO, stated, "At AUL, we believe our people are our most important asset, and empowering them to direct and manage our annual giving program provides immeasurable personal and professional growth. Being a committee member has become a source of pride within the company, and naturally drives others to do and be better."
This sense of company pride has helped the firm to be named ‘Best Places to Work’ four years running, by the North Bay Business Journal.
