RHINELANDER, Wis., Oct. 7, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Charter Next Generation, a prominent employer in Oneida County and across the entire state, also known as North America’s leading independent producer of high-performance, specialty films, and flexible packaging solutions, recently announced the introduction of a business-wide initiative called the Community Giving Fund. The employee-driven program is designed to empower Charter Next Generation’s employee-owners to hand-select local entities that would greatly benefit from financial aid and beyond within the communities in which their employees reside.
To jumpstart the philanthropic initiative, Charter Next Generation’s Rhinelander team hand-selected four local organizations, including The Humane Society of Oneida County, Wild Instincts of the Northwoods, The Boys and Girls Clubs of the Northwoods, and the Rhinelander Fire Department. These groups were nominated to extend the broadest possible reach across the region and administer much-needed assistance directly to the Rhinelander community.
The mission of the newly enacted Community Giving Fund is ultimately to reinforce the local community’s foundation, enhance the area’s quality of life, and amplify the value of increasing sustainable efforts inside the communities in which Charter Next Generation employees live and work.
“CNG’s employee-driven Community Giving Fund is an awesome initiative that brings further visibility to those charitable organizations that are most important to our employees and their families,” shared Scott Hammer, CNG’s Director of Corporate Sustainability. “This program also allows our organization to target charitable opportunities that directly benefit our local communities and take actionable steps toward achieving CNG’s sustainability goals.”
Charter Next Generation’s Community Giving Fund strives to cultivate community sustainability, improve education and workforce development, and strengthen social and economic equity. Through this program, CNG passionately invests in all regions with CNG manufacturing facilities, donating to virtuously selected organizations that can make a real-world difference in their local communities.
