The Numbers Speak
Gantry is pleased to announce that the total donations for 2023 was similar to the past three years despite a significant downturn in the market for our industry over the last 12 months. These funds have been strategically distributed to support initiatives that align with Gantry's corporate values and contribute to building a better, more inclusive world.
A Glimpse into Our Chosen Cause
This year, Gantry has chosen to direct its support to the Alameda County Community Food Bank. Celebrating a remarkable 35-year legacy, this organization has been instrumental in distributing healthy meals to the local community. Gantry's decision to align with the Alameda County Community Food Bank, which will be generously matched by the Steph and Ayesha Curry Foundation, reflects its commitment to prioritizing clients' needs and supporting an organization that addresses a fundamental human necessity.
According to Ken Gwynn, Gantry’s Operations Director and manager of the Donation Program, "Over the last few years, Gantry has participated in providing an annual donation on behalf of our clients and employees to a non-profit that we feel holds similar values with our company culture and supported by one of its employees through our matching program. This year, we've decided to support the Alameda County Community Food Bank. For the last 35 years, this organization has done an incredible job of distributing much-needed healthy meals to their local community. Gantry continues its commitment to prioritizing our clients’ needs and supporting an organization that delivers a basic human necessity aligns with who we are as a company."
As Gantry embarks on a new year, the company remains dedicated to fostering positive change and contributing to the well-being of communities globally. Gantry extends heartfelt gratitude to everyone who has been a part of this journey and invites continued collaboration to make 2024 even more impactful.
