AlloSource Staff Leads the Way in Employee Giving
While skin allografts support physical healing, that is only the beginning. As the leading provider of skin allografts for burn injuries, AlloSource saw an opportunity to support burn survivors every step of the way by collaborating with Phoenix Society.
As Phoenix Society’s Vision Partner, AlloSource is dedicated to the full circle of healing for burn survivors around the world. The mutual desire to deepen the connection between AlloSource employees and Phoenix Society led to the development of an employee giving campaign.
“I have the privilege of serving on the Phoenix Society’s Board, so I get to see firsthand the incredible work they do across the country,” said Dean Elliott, AlloSource Chief Legal Officer. “Giving employees a deeper understanding of the Phoenix Society was a wonderful opportunity for our staff to connect to an organization whose mission aligns so well with our own.”
AlloSource launched the employee giving campaign with a focus on raising awareness and driving donations for the Phoenix Society. Amy Acton, Executive Director of Phoenix Society, and Tony Gonzalez, a Phoenix Advocate, visited AlloSource to share their personal experiences with the staff. Their stories of survival and triumph over tragedy inspired employees and provided insight into burn recovery. Along with the opportunity to meet Amy and Tony, employees had additional opportunities to learn more about the Phoenix Society and donate to the organization.
The two-week campaign included a day where employees could dress casually by making a financial donation, a fire extinguisher raffle, and ongoing communication campaign to staff about the Phoenix Society. The AlloSource team was proud to exceed their goal of raising $10,000 for the Phoenix Society!
The partnership between AlloSource and the Phoenix Society demonstrates that a movement is truly greater than one person.
