One goal of Family Friendly Workplaces (FFW) is to create new and sustainable resources for family supporting 501(c)3 non-profit organizations.
FFW targets a minimum annual contribution of ten (10) dollars per FTE to be channeled through FFW's conduit to a 501(c)3 engaged in family supporting programing. The certified employer, in collaboration with FFW, directs which non-profit will receive the contribution, and full credit for the contribution is given to the certified employer. Examples of eligible non-profits are: Family Resource Center St Croix Valley, United Way’s Success by 6 Program, YMCA, Community Food Shelves, and many more.
By acting as a conduit, Family Friendly Workplaces encourages and channels funding towards local non-profits working on related issues. Ultimately, this resource multiplication allows for the impact of Family Friendly employers to be felt far beyond the employees of certified employers.
