Spokane County United Way has been serving the community for more than 100 years. The organization is focused on education, health, and financial stability—the building blocks for a good quality of life. For more than 40 years, Garco has been a supporter of the Spokane County United Way. Since 2000 (the year the current donor software dates back to), Garco and staff donations have raised more than $589,793. Each year Garco staff members have the opportunity to make a one-time donation or elect to have donations done as automatic payroll deductions. For each employee that participates, the company provides a matching donation dollar for dollar.
For 2022, Garco staff and officers, along with the matching company funds, have committed $62,896 to the Spokane County United Way. Garco President Clancy Welsh shares, “We are proud of the commitment our employees make each year to support the goals of the Spokane County United Way. United Way focuses on education, health and financial stability in our community. Our commitment to these programs is making a difference here in Spokane and will continue to improve the opportunities for those less fortunate. It is humbling to know our team recognizes the needs of so many in our community, even in such a divisive and challenging time. Our team’s unwavering commitment has allowed us to maintain the same level of support that we have provided in years past. We are fortunate to have a such a generous team at Garco.”
