Havertown, Pennsylvania – Nolan Painting has been named a 2021 honoree of The Civic 50 Greater Philadelphia by Philadelphia Foundation, in partnership with Points of Light and local partners. Modeled after Points of Light’s national program, The Civic 50 Greater Philadelphia provides a standard for corporate citizenship and showcases how employers use their time, skills, and resources to drive social impact in their communities and company.
“Supporting the community in which we serve is at the core of who we are,” said President of Nolan Painting Kevin Nolan. “Since 2015, we have committed to giving $1 million to community-based organizations and nonprofits over a ten-year period. Our ‘Nolan in The Neighborhood’ community initiative focuses on education, environmental initiatives, health and fitness causes, and historical societies.”
The Civic 50 Greater Philadelphia honorees are private and public companies and other employers operating in the Philadelphia region. They have been selected based on four dimensions of their community engagement program:
· Investment of resources
· Integration across business functions
· Institutionalization through policies and system
· Impact measurement.
Since 2011, The Civic 50 has provided a national standard for superior corporate citizenship and has showcased how companies use their time, skills, and other resources to drive social impact in their business and community.
“Philadelphia Foundation is proud to recognize Nolan Painting’s outstanding civic engagement,” said Pedro Ramos, President and Chief Executive Officer of Philadelphia Foundation. “All of the 2021 honorees have demonstrated great passion and dedication to making a meaningful impact in the local communities they serve. It is this type of commitment that resonates throughout a region and sets the standard for corporate stewardship. We thank Nolan Painting for their efforts and congratulate them on this exciting honor.”
Also in keeping with Philadelphia Foundation’s role in advancing civic initiatives through partnerships and collaboration, it serves as home to the Greater Philadelphia Corporate Volunteer Council, as well as the Key Skills Hub – an ecosystem that matches community nonprofits with skills-based volunteers, free of charge.
“Points of Light believes that corporate leadership and commitment to civic engagement is critical to strengthening communities, and The Civic 50 Greater Philadelphia honorees including Nolan Painting exemplify that,” said Natalye Paquin, President and Chief Executive Officer of Points of Light. “Their inclusiveness and comprehensive approach to corporate citizenship, as well as their responsiveness to reflect, learn from each other, and respond to community needs, make the Greater Philadelphia region a better place for all. We are so pleased to recognize them for taking their civic responsibility seriously, and for the role they play in shaping their communities.”
The Civic 50 Greater Philadelphia honorees were officially recognized on Wednesday, June 30th, at a celebratory event on the central Delaware River waterfront.
