Spokane, WA Universal Funding Corporation, an invoice financing company, has announced the award of $30,000.00 donations to 4 area charities, Sally’s House (Salvation Army), Partners with Families and Children, Meals on Wheels and Christmas for All hosted by the Coeur d’Alene Press .
“As a Spokane based corporation with a nearly 15 years history in Spokane, WA, we are honored to be able to help outstanding charities in our community,” said Monica Wozow, of Universal Funding Corporation. “These are tough times for many in our area and we plan to continue our support and outreach.”
Sally’s House is a safe house for children in turmoiland can accommodate up to 18 children at any given time and offers child friendly amenities with a compassionate support team. Over 1,645 children from Spokane County have been placed in Sally’s House until permanent solutions were available. The Salvation Army praised Universal Funding Corporation by offering the following letter, “Dear Universal Funding, Thank you for the charitable gift. Children living at Sally’s House are the most vulnerable children living on our community who have typically been removed from their home by CPS and police for abuse or neglect. Our staff at Sally’s House provides a safe, nurturing loving environment for children ages 2-12 allowing state social workers the time to find a good match with typically a relative or foster home.”
In 2012, Partners with Families and Children Spokane Child Advocacy Center was able to provide services to 368 children in the Spokane community. The following is an excerpt of a letter from their Executive Director, “Thank you for your recent contribution to Partners with Families and Children. The 2012 calendar year was a financially difficult one for the agency, as all service lines were facing cuts from the State budget. In order to meet rising costs and family needs, Partners depends upon the generosity from community members such as you. We value your vote of confidence and support of our program.”
Additionally, Universal Funding made generous donations to Christmas for All hosted by the Coeur d’Alene Press and the local Meals on Wheels chapter.
Businesses that help charities receive a number of residual benefits, including but certainly not limited to, recognition, goodwill, and publicity. Those benefits shouldn’t motivate businesses to help, but they shouldn’t be ignored either. Universal Funding wants to spread the word about what kinds of local efforts need continued support throughout the year.
