Wise F&I always strives to give back to our community.
Here is a snapshot of Wise F&I in action:
Season of Giving – December 2020
Each holiday season, Wise F&I completes a campaign of giving. This year, our selected charities were Toys For Tots and Feed My People. With a monetary collection from Wise F&I employees, plus a company match, we were able to donate more than any previous year. We are proud of our employees for continuing to give back during this unprecedented year.
Another part of our campaign of giving, includes the involvement from a select group of agents. Wise F&I extends the option, for this group, to select a charity of choice for us to make a donation in their name. Many agents choose to donate their share to Wise F&I’s selected charity, Pedal The Cause. This is a way for Wise F&I to help give back to charities from all across our country. This season of giving, Wise F&I was able to make donations to the following charities:
- Pedal the Cause
- Rocky Mountain Childhood Cancer foundation
- Village of Hope Lawrenceville, Inc.
- Mary’s Residential Training School
- Cathedral High School St. Cloud, MN
- Arlington Charities
- Northwest Indiana Families for Effective Autism Treatment
- Toys for Tots
- Make-A-Wish (Arizona)
- St. Jude’s Hospital
Giving Hope – December 2020
Our friends at Premier Automotive Group, with the help of Southern Auto Dealer Resources, are doing great things to benefit their community during these uncertain times. We will continue supporting our partners and Giving Hope, with the aim of making a difference, together. Wise F&I is proud to see our partners giving back!
26th Annual Ed Morse MDA Golf Classic – November 2020
Wise F&I’s President and Chief Executive Officer, Matt Croak and Southeast Account Executive, Jeff Ravlin played in the annual Ed Morse Golf Classic to help raise funds for the Muscular Dystrophy Association. As a Divot Tool Sponsor, Wise F&I was able to help provide resources for families.
Saint Louis Strong Banner – August 2020
Fast Signs was able to print a 20-foot banner as a symbol of hope and community during this rather unusual year. With the purchase of this banner, we were able to provide about 200 meals to the St. Louis food banks.
COVID-19 Care Packages – August 2020
Wise F&I wants to spread joy and help to decrease the spread of COVID-19. We stocked up on gaiter masks with filters and anti-bacterial sanitizer sprays and gifted them to agents, partnerships and all employees.
F&I Providers Relief Fund For F&I Managers – May 2020
Wise F&I was a proud sponsor and founding donor for the F&I Providers Relief Fund. This fund allowed for F&I Managers, who were greatly affected by COVID-19, to apply for a grant in hopes to help relieve any financial burdens.
Australia Donation Luncheon – January 2020
Wise F&I hosted a luncheon to raise money for the fires in Australia. With the help of the entire Wise F&I team, we were able to collect a generous amount of funds to help get the bushfires under control.
Miles For California
Wise F&I and Mid America Logistics paired up to give much-needed support to those affected by the California wildfires. We collected non-perishable food items and healthcare products to provide for the wildfire survivors. Wise F&I and Mid America Logistics delivered truckloads of these goods to the affected areas in Northern California.
Bocce for Bambinos
Playing bocce at Milo’s Tavern on the Hill to raise funds for St. Louis Children’s Hospital and SSM Heath Cardinal Glennon Children’s Hospital.
Holiday Donations for Our Troops and Adopted Family
Each holiday season we participate in a Trifecta of Giving to collect items/donations to send to troops and our adopted family.
We Support CAMP RAINBOW
Annually we have participated in the Camp Rainbow Walk-A-Thon.
Camp Rainbow services children with cancer and blood-related diseases.
Girl Scout Cookies
Everyone loves Girl Scout Cookies! We do our part by support the daughters of our team members who are part of a troop, and we also send cookies overseas to our military troops.
Ronald McDonald House
The Ronald McDonald House St. Louis has three locations to serve families in need. These houses provide a “home-away-from-home” for families so they can stay close by their hospitalized child at little or no cost. We volunteered at one of the Ronald McDonald Houses and provided a dinner for the families staying there.
Flood Relief in Texas
Whenever there is a natural disaster, we try to do our part to help by supplying items for people in need. The flood that occurred in June in Texas was no different. We collected toiletries and shelf-stable food to help aid the flood relief efforts.
Wishing On A Ride
Wishing On A Ride is an organization, through cooperation with the Make A Wish Foundation, that provides powerboat rides for children and their families dealing with serious illness and disabilities. Read more in the LakeExpo.com.
