Atmosphere of giving at Mensor

Mensor Cares is a band of Mensor employees who believe in the spirit of working together and help others in need. To be able to support other non-profits, an own non-profit organisation was financed and formed through payroll deductions, Susan Fisher reports:
Early 2015 a discussion started about how exactly our contributions could be used. Which associations ought to be funded and what percentage of our contributions would actually get there?
Could we achieve more employee participation if they were involved with making decisions as to where and how their money was spent?
Finally in September 2015, Mensor Cares was founded as a non-profit organisation. It is run wholly by employees and has no overhead administrative costs. One hundred percent of employee donations are returned to recommended charities. A board of directors was elected for multi-
year terms.
