AN ARRAY OF SUPPORT
Back on My Feet’s truly unique model is transforming lives all across the country. We’re excited to be able to deepen our relationship with this inspiring organization and see even more individuals find strength and self-reliance through the power of community and commitment.
Companies ranging from large international firms to local mom-and-pop businesses
offer an array of support to our organization. They hire members, conduct trainings,
provide meeting space and help us create the community that propels our members forward.
Here are just four organizations who helped us in 2019:
In January, the Stand Together Foundation committed $550,000 to Back on My Feet — our largest foundation gift to date. The funding is part of a series of investments from Stand Together during National Poverty Awareness Month to expand the work of organizations in its Catalyst Network, a growing group of more than 100 innovative organizations that are transforming communities across the country and helping people break free of the cycle of poverty.
Back on My Feet was excited to partner with HOKA ONE ONE®, a division of Deckers Brands (NYSE: DECK), in 2019. HOKA donated $30,000 to Back on My Feet’s program and committed community engagement as well as shoe donation in 2020.
Cigna has been a longtime supporter of Back on My Feet, and in 2020 they continued to help deliver impact around the country. They connected members to free dental services in Los Angeles, sponsored healthy cooking and nutrition classes in multiple markets, and provided computers to our chapters nationwide to help with member training.
The Ace Cash Express Community Fund, part of Populous Financial, provides crucial support to our programs in Los Angeles, Baltimore and Dallas. They also teach classes in Financial Literacy, helping our members learn about basic banking, budgeting, and skills for financial success.
We take a well-rounded approach to help members move towards self-sufficiency, and we ask our national partners to do the same. Game-changing partners literally alter the course of our organization. The partners below impact member success nationwide through employee engagement, programmatic support, financial support and board engagement.
