SNL Financial Creates Foundation to Benefit Local Communities

Posted by lbanner on October 21, 2008

From eMediaWire:

SNL Financial has announced the formation of the SNL Cares Foundation, a non-profit organization providing corporate-level support for charitable causes selected by SNL employees as a positive way of contributing to the global communities where they live and work.

With initial funding from SNL of $100,000 for calendar year 2008 supplemented by elective contributions from clients, the SNL Cares Foundation will make donations to Section 501(c)(3) non-profit organizations based on employee recommendations.

The Foundation has already contributed to several charitable events in Charlottesville, Va., home of SNL’s corporate headquarters, including this past weekend’s 2008 Start! Heart Walk for the American Heart Association. The Foundation donated $10,000, serving as the Learn From Me – Get Fit Sponsor. In addition, a team from SNL Financial joined thousands of walkers from throughout Central Virginia to raise money and awareness for this country’s No. 1 and No. 3 killers, heart disease and stroke.
