The Many Gifts of Corporate Giving: A Story From Voya Financial

Every September, the Corporate Responsibility team of Voya Financial, Inc., hosts an employee-giving campaign for the company’s more than 6,000 employees across the country. For 2021, Voya hosted its event online, featuring live entertainment, chances to win prizes, and more. Wheeler and other non-profits were among the recipients of campaign proceeds.

Prior to the event, employees had an opportunity to peruse and consider prizes, while also learning about the non-profit organizations that were supported through the activity. 

A brand new IPad, donated by Voya employee and Wheeler Board of Trustees member Rachel Tressy, captured the attention of another Voya employee and his young daughter.  The Voya employee noted that his daughter chose to participate for a chance to win the iPad based on the fact that she was inspired by Wheeler’s mission. 

The iPad raised more than $1,000 at the event. When coupled with the company’s 1:1 match program, nearly $2,000 was raised for Wheeler. Proceeds will benefit Wheeler’s planned development of a new community health center in Bristol to better serve individuals and families in the city.

“Voya makes it easy for employees to give,” said Ms. Tressy. “We are so grateful for our team’s interest and engagement in the community.”
