From July 9 – 27, Guggenheim Partners hosted its second-annual Guggenheim Community Impact (GCI), the firm’s Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) summer volunteer campaign.
Guggenheim Community Impact aimed to honor and strengthen the firm’s principles of stewardship and collaboration by enabling employees to step forward and give back to local communities where they work and live.
Guggenheim’s three-week campaign brought together more than 900 volunteers who participated in a wide range of activities from revitalizing public parks to facilitating summer camp programs for children. Guggenheim CSR organized more than 40 volunteer events with 32 non-profit organizations contributing more than 2,500 hours of service. This year saw a 33 percent increase in service hours and a 36 percent increase in employee participation.
“This year’s Guggenheim Community Impact exemplified the strengths of Guggenheim’s culture – our employees worked together to help those in need, and committed their time, talents and efforts to make a difference in our communities,” said Head of CSR Lauren Coape-Arnold. “Thank you to all of our volunteers and non-profit partners for working together to drive social change.”
