How We Found our Dream Philanthropic Partner

Monday, December 29, 2014 | COLUMN: Campaigns

This holiday season, we dedicated our time, resources and contributions to a global charitable platform, Action Against Hunger to assist in fighting child hunger. No child should be hungry, and helping them is a mission close to our hearts. We thank each of you that helped us with this initiative by purchasing a product or making a contribution. Your generosity is overwhelming.

Our belief in the right for healthy nutrition is so strong that we have designated Action Against Hunger as our flagship cause and we have committed to working with the organization throughout 2015. The journey to selecting this charity has been a thoughtful process we’d like to share.

The Pür Minerals leadership team had a goal of creating a meaningful philanthropic platform that could easily be adopted by our team and would be embraced by our customers. Six months ago, we began the process to find just the right platform that had just the right fit.

After a lengthy process of research, surveys and due diligence, we found that the causes closest to all of our hearts were: children and family, education, animal rights and healthcare/disease. Taking this information, we then formed a philanthropy task force, who began the research process into more than 50 charities that were nominated by team members. Our key criteria included:

  • Rated as an “A” charity
  • National and global focus
  • Women and children focused
  • Transparent financial reporting
  • A minimum of 80% of funds go to the cause vs. administrative

In September, we conducted more due diligence and completed more voting, then completed our final selection in October.

“Action Against Hunger is an organization that really spoke to our team members,” said Julie Campbell, Vice President, Marketing. “This organization met 100% our criteria points and more. Their stance on not only fighting hunger but giving those in need sustainable solutions to hunger was very unique. We spent six months making sure that they were the right organization to partner with, and we couldn’t be happier to join forces with them to fight childhood hunger.”

We are close to wrapping up our special holiday fundraiser that ends on 1/7/2015. Please consider joining us in this fight simply by making a purchase on www.purminerals.com. A portion of all online proceeds will go to Action Against Hunger and customers can also add a donation of $1, $5 or $10 at checkout. 100% of that donation will go to Action Against Hunger and Pür Minerals will match it dollar for dollar!
