Bellingham-based Saturna Capital employees recently donated $107,000 to 37 nonprofit organizations as part of the company’s holiday season Charitable Giving Program.
For 2010, the company changed its holiday donation program, offering employees a chance to direct a charitable donation equal to the amount of their holiday bonus to one nonprofit organization. Employees who chose to forgo a bonus were able to increase their donation by three-and-a-half times.
Since 2008, company employees have directed $284,000 in donations.
Organizations receiving the largest donations during 2010 include: St. Paul’s Academy ($7,000), the Bellingham Food Bank ($5,500), Make.Shift ($4,500), Mt. Baker Scout Foundation ($4,500), Peaceful Communications ($4,500), and UPLIFT Charity ($4,500).
